Chelsea Thomas had an unusually tough outing and the Missouri bats did too little talking as the Missouri Tigers lost to the LSU Tigers Saturday, 6-1.
“I really can’t think back on a worse game for me,” Thomas said. “It was just an off day.” Thomas’ record is now 28-8.
Even though Missouri (46-13) got eight hits off of Rachele Fico, LSU’s top pitcher, the team couldn’t get the right hits at the right time. LSU is now 38-22.
In the post game press conference Missouri coach Ehren Earleywine said, “I’m optimistic about Sunday.”
Senior outfielder Ashley Fleming added that the team would come into Sunday’s games with the mindset that they would be playing 14 innings of ball. Missouri must win two games on Sunday to advance to the Women’s College World Series.
Attendance at Saturday’s game was 2,253.
