The Missouri softball team gathers at home plate to congratulate Ashley Fleming after she hit a two-run home run against Illinois State in NCAA regional competition Saturday afternoon at University Field. Fleming's home run helped the Tigers earn a 12-3 win over the Redbirds in both team's regional opener. But the Tigers lost to DePaul in their second game, forcing an elimination game against Illinois State on Saturday night. Missouri won that game 8-4 to advance to Sunday's championship round against DePaul.
