The Missouri softball team advanced to 6-0 this season after recording two wins Friday in the Crimson Classic in Tuscaloosa, Ala.
Missouri defeated Maryland 6-1 in the first game on the strength of home runs by Leanne Bowers and Micaela Minner.
Bowers also was a hero in the second game, a 3-2 defeat of Penn State, giving the Tigers the lead for good with an RBI hit in the fourth inning.
Freshman Jen Bruck earned the win in both games and moved to 3-0.
The Tigers take to the diamond again tomorrow at 1:30 p.m. against the host team, No. 6 Alabama.
