Columbia, MO- Spring. It comes every year, and along with it comes baseball and softball. The Tigers' softball team, coached by Ehren Earleywine, entered the season with a preseason #7 ranking, and after falling behind the curveball in California, they've been virtually unstoppable. Missouri softball extends their win streak to 19 straight with the their two victories today. They won 10-1 over Western Michigan and 2-0 over Minnesota and are now 22-3 on the year. The shutout today over Minnesota makes 13 on the year, and 12 of the last 15. They travel to Lawrence, KS to take on the Beakers in their Big 12 opener on March 23rd.
