The Missouri softball team scored 19 unanswered runs against Missouri State in a doubleheader Wednesday in Springfield.
The Tigers won the first game 12-0 in five innings and then earned a 7-0 victory in the second.
Angela Randazzo led the Missouri offense, going 4-for-6 with five RBIs and two home runs. Mackenzie Sykes also hit two home runs, and Emily Crane and Nicole Hudson had a home run apiece.
Missouri coach Ehren Earleywine said he had been worried his team would overlook the midweek doubleheader because of its big series this weekend against Alabama, but the Tigers' offense continued to backup ace Chelsea Thomas.
"We need those games," Corrin Genovese said Tuesday. "We need those midweek games to prepare for the weekends, just to keep our swings feeling good."
Thomas earned the 100th win of her college career in Game 1. She is now 100-26 as a Tiger. Tuesday, Earleywine said he didn't want Thomas to pitch more than seven innings between the two games Wednesday, so after pitching four innings in Game 1, he had Nicole Hudson relieve Thomas in the fourth inning of Game 2. Hudson won Game 2, giving up just one hit in four innings.
The Tigers (22-2, 7-1 SEC) head to Tuscaloosa, Ala., on Thursday for a weekend series against the Crimson Tide starting at 8 p.m. Friday.
