Nicole Hudson (8) is congratulated by teammates Mackenzie Sykes (4) and Jenna Marston (26) after scoring. Missouri beat Hofstra 5-0 in the second game Sunday, May 19, 2013, to win the regional tournament at University Field in Columbia, Mo.

Missouri needed both games on Sunday to defeat Olivia Galati and the Hofstra Pride.

With Nicole Hudson in the pitching circle, the Tigers were unable to score a run, losing 10-0 in five innings. Missouri managed just four hits while Hofstra had nine.

By Sunday’s second game, Galati had pitched every inning of their four other games, throwing 459 pitches in 34 innings and Missouri was able to take advantage of her fatigue. Missouri’s Kelsea Roth and Nicole Hudson hit home runs in the 5-0 win.

This will be the sixth straight Super Regional tournament for Missouri, hosting No. 11 Washington in a best-of-three series that will start either Thursday or Friday.

Washington hosted the Seattle Regional, beating Portland State and Hawaii twice to win the regional.

Missouri beat the Huskies in their 2011 super regional.

The winners of the four Super Regional tournaments advance to the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City. Those games start on May 30.
