COLLEGE STATION, Tx. (KMIZ)
The Mizzou softball team had a chance to win its first SEC series of the season Sunday at No. 23 Texas A&M, but the Aggies put together a big fourth inning to secure an 11-4 series victory.
The Tigers got on the board first plating four runs in the second inning, but a seven-run fourth for the Aggies was too much for MU to overcome.
Laurin Krings pitched nearly four innings giving up six runs on seven hits while recording four strikeouts, plus Cierra Harrison gave up two more runs on a three-run home run in the fourth. Freshman Taylor Pannell came in for the sixth inning also giving up three runs.
Julia Cottrill crushed two three-run home runs for Texas A&M to bring in six total runs.
The bats were led by a two-run double from Jenna Laird. The bottom of the lineup also came up big for the Tigers with Megan Moll and Rock Bridge Alum Maddie Snider bringing in a run each in the eight and nine spots. However, no MU runs were brought across the plate in the final five innings.
Mizzou is now 31-22 on the season and 5-16 in SEC play. The team has one more conference series to go hosting No. 8 Arkansas for a three-game series starting Friday at 7 p.m.
