Mizzou defeats Kansas for 13-game winning streak

By Barbara Maningat

Missouri softball kicked off Big 12 conference play with another run-rule victory, defeating rival Kansas 10-0. Chelsea Thomas got the win, giving her a 9-1 record on the season. She pitched four and one-third shutout innings before allowing one hit in the top of the fifth. Lindsey Muller led the team and went 3-for-3 with one RBI while Corrin Genovese and Nicole Hudson each recorded two hits. In the last play of the game, freshman Kelsi Jones drove in three RBIs with her third home run of the season in the bottom of the sixth inning, helping the Tigers end the Jayhawks’ 20-game winning streak.

Due to Saturday’s weather, the Tigers and Jayhawks will play a double header on Sunday, starting at noon.
