Even though the Hofstra Pride jumped on Missouri pitcher Chelsea Thomas from the very first batter, Thomas was able to get timely strike outs to earn the 1-0 shutout in the Columbia Regional Saturday.

Thomas, who did not pitch in Friday’s game, struck out seven, walked two and allowed eight hits in the win. Missouri’s defense put up one run on one hit, benefiting from a Hofstra error.

Princess Krebs scored the run for the Tigers in the bottom of the third inning. Krebs reached first on an error, was advanced to second on a bunt by Carlie Rose and scored on a hit by Emily Crane.

Hoftstra won its game against Stony Brook 6-0 to advance to Sunday’s game with Missouri in the double-elimination tournament. If Missouri loses the 1 p.m. game, the two teams will play again for a scheduled 4:30 p.m. game.

If Missouri wins the Regional it will host the Super Regional next weekend.
