After shutting out No. 13 Texas A&M 7-0 on Friday, No. 15 Missouri softball (13-4, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) was on the other end of a blowout Saturday, losing 11-2 in five innings.
The Aggies got on the board early, dropping four runs in the bottom of the first inning on freshman Casey Stangel. The Aggies scored their runs mainly off of four walks, an error and a hit batter, but the damage would hold.
The Tigers got two runs back in the following frame, thanks to a two-run home run by freshman catcher Kirsten Mack. It was the first of her collegiate career.
The Aggies would go on to score seven runs over the following two innings, with a home run and four other hits, which was enough to end the Tigers’ day early.
The two teams will wrap up their series in College Station, Texas, tomorrow with a Sunday matinée. First pitch is set for noon.
