Tiger baseball, softball advance in tournaments
by MizzMatt 5/28/11
Columbia, MO- Both Tiger diamond squads were in action today, one in the super regional for the Women's College World Series and one in Oklahoma City for the Big 12 championships. A win in the SR for the WCWS means that the softball team is one step closer to their third consecutive WCWS...and a win is what they got. Chelsea Thomas gets another shutout for the Tigers as Mizzou defeated Washington 4-0 today and are now one win away from the WCWS.
On the baseball side, the eighth-seeded Tiger squad was in action in the Big 12 semifinals against top seed Texas. The Tigers, who beat Texas in the opening game 6-4, then lost to them in game 1 today 6-1, rebounded and knocked off the Longhorns with a 2-1 victory to advance to the championship game! The Tigers will face second seed Texas A&M for all the marbles in the Cinderella tournament run.
