MIZ > SLU

After their statement sweep on the road against a ranked Kentucky team to get back on track in SEC play, the no. 25 Mizzou Softball team looked to continue the momentum in a mid-week game at home against in-state opponent SLU.

Karen Steger provided a lot of the coverage yesterday, but in case if you missed it, the Tigers beat the Billikens 9-3 to improve to 29-17 overall on the season.

Reigning SEC Player of the Week Kimberly Wert added to her HR total with her 14th of the season.

Brooke Wilmes had a big day, going 2-4 with a HR and 3 RBI. Wilmes reached a milestone, and also added to the record books.

You can watch the full highlights on Mizzou Softball’s win here!

Missouri is in an unusual spot as the Tigers are currently under .500 in conference play with an 8-9 SEC record, but they have a good opportunity to improve their conference record as they host Texas A&M this weekend, who is only 5-13 in the SEC (but just took 2-3 from Alabama). Winning that series will be crucial because Mizzou closes out the regular season with an extremely tough task — on the road against a Top 10 Alabama team.

Plenty of more coverage to come from Karen on this weekend’s series, along with a full recap later today.
