Kim Wert on Mizzou softball’s success
Missouri softball split two games in the NCAA Tournament Los Angeles regional Saturday and will need to beat UCLA twice Sunday to advance.
The Tigers were run-ruled in five innings, losing 9-1 to the second-ranked Bruins on Saturday afternoon, but shut out Weber State 7-0 in the loser’s bracket Saturday night.
Mizzou plays UCLA at 4 p.m. Central time Sunday on ESPNU. If the Tigers lose, UCLA advances to the super regionals. If the Tigers win, the second game would follow.
On Saturday, Missouri had just two hits against the Bruins and had its lone run come in on an RBI from senior Reagan Nash.
The Tigers had three errors, which caused just two of the Bruins’ runs to be earned.
The Tigers beat Cal State-Fullerton 7-4 on Friday night in its first postseason game under coach Larissa Anderson.
