Missouri softball gets road win against Saint Louis

Missourian Staff

A strong performance from its lineup and bullpen gave No. 17 Missouri softball a 10-4 win over Saint Louis on Tuesday in St. Louis.

The Billikens got out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning, but a three-RBI performance from Missouri centerfielder Brooke Wilmes led another offensive outburst to turn around the game.

Wilmes gave the Tigers (25-7) a 3-2 lead after scoring on a sacrifice fly from Hatti Moore in the fourth, and the team never relinquished the lead, scoring in the last five innings after going scoreless in the first two.

Emma Nichols and Lauren Krings combined for seven strikeouts and only two earned runs in 5⅓ innings out of the bullpen to turn the game around after starter Megan Schumacher gave up two runs in 1⅔.

Krings struck out six of the 11 batters she faced to get the win and improve to 6-2 this season.

The Tigers will next play a three-game series at South Carolina from Thursday-Saturday.
