Tigers Outlast Sooners in Marathon Victory

Posted by We Are Mizzou On 12:07 PM 0 comments

COLUMBIA, Mo. - One day after a nine inning battle, the No. 9 Tigers and No. 14 Sooners were back at it as Missouri pulled out another dramatic victory, this one coming in the 11th inning. Nicole Hudson delivered a base hit back up the middle, scoring Saturday's hero Abby Vock, as the Tigers completed their first sweep over the Sooners since 2006.

With the win, Missouri extended the nation's best home winning streak to 32 straight games while improving to 35-5 on the season. The Tigers kept pace with Texas (37-4, 9-0 Big 12) in the Big 12 standings, moving to 9-1 in league play to stay a half game out of first.

In front of a regular season record crowd of 1,712, redshirt sophomore Chelsea Thomas was once again magnificent. The Pleasantville, Iowa, native threw her second complete game of the weekend, tossing all 11 innings, while striking out 17 batters for the second straight day. She allowed six hits and walked only one, throwing 163 pitches in the affair. Thomas struck out every Sooner batter at least one time on the day.

Missouri hits the road for four games this week, starting with a doubleheader on Wednesday at Saint Louis at 3 p.m. CT.
