Back, back, back again, at Mizzou Softball Stadium where it all began.

It’s here. The last game at Mizzou Softball Stadium of the season. Regardless of if Mizzou can pull off two victories today over Arizona, they won’t be playing in the friendly confines of CoMo after today.

For the last time… MIZ

Want to know what happened in the Late Night Edition? Read my recap. Also familiarize yourself with the Arizona team in my earlier preview.

WHEN: Sunday, May 22 @ 3pm

WHERE: Mizzou Softball Stadium | Columbia, Mo.

TV/STREAMING: ESPN 2 | WatchESPN (UPDATE: starting on ESPN News)

STATS: Live on StatBroadcast (just scroll down to the event)

HISTORY: As far as Mizzou’s softball history takes me, the Tigers are 3-12 against the historical blue blood, going back to Feb. 2001. Before the 2-0 loss yesterday afternoon, the two teams last last met in February 2020, where they lost 0-2 in the Mary Nutter Classic.

M-I-Z!

Interesting that Arizona is going with Devyn Netz on the mound.

From my preview:

Pitching: In the Wildcats’ last series against Stanford, they combined for 24 H and 16 R (13 ER). Devyn Netz’s last outing, in particular on 5/13 was ghastly: 10 hits and 7 ER in just 4.1 IP. This is clearly the way to beat the Wildcats, because wow— they struggle on the mound.

As always, stay up to date on all things Mizzou Softball this season by following me, @KarenSteger, and @RockMNation. I’ll have previews and recaps for each of Missouri’s games in the postseason. When available, I’ll also be firing off some tweets from both accounts.
