MUTIGERS.COM No. 23 Mizzou Evens Series on Rocky Top with 8-3 Win

After Tennessee took a 2-0 lead with a single run in both the first and second innings, Klages ripped a bases-loaded double off the wall in right center to give Mizzou a 3-2 lead. Ring then launched his second career homer after a Brett Peel (St. Charles, Mo.) single to give Mizzou a 6-2 lead. In all, the Tigers scored six runs on six hits in the frame. The Tigers added a run in the sixth and ninth innings and Breckin Williams (Oronogo, Mo.) earned his eighth save of the season.

MUTIGERS.COM No. 21 Mizzou Softball Capitalizes On Errors to Down Mississippi State, 3-2

Facing a 3-0 deficit, Mississippi State battled back in the top of the seventh inning. After the first two MSU batters reached base, the visitors scored on a throwing error by Mizzou, followed by a single tapped down the left field line. With the tying run just 60-feet away, Lowary was two outs away from recording just her second career save. Lowary used just three pitches to generate a swinging strikeout for the second out of the inning. In Mississippi State's final at bat of the game, Lowary induced a shallow flare that found its way into the glove of Genovese to seal the game.
