The No. 15 Missouri softball team fell to No. 13 Texas A&M 11-2 in five innings in the second game of the series on Saturday in College Station, Texas. The Tigers are now 1-1 in Southeastern Conference play and 13-4 overall.
A two-run home run by freshman catcher Kirsten Mack in the top of the second inning gave Missouri its only two runs of the game, scoring freshman Casey Stangel.
The Aggies scored four runs — three unearned — in the first inning, followed by a solo home run by senior outfielder Cassie Tysarczyk in the second.
Texas A&M added six more runs in the third inning with a two-RBI double, an RBI single and a three-run home run. This brought the score to 11-2, giving the Aggies one more than the necessary eight-run lead to enact the slaughter rule, ending the game in five innings.
Stangel took the loss in the circle for Missouri, pitching four innings and allowing six hits and six walks.
The teams will finish the series with a game at noon Sunday.
