Texas Tech Softball Upsets No. 9 Missouri in Columbia 2-0

texastech.com

The Texas Tech Red Raiders used a one-hitter from Brittany Talley and the Red Raiders defeated a Top 10 team for a third time in the past week defeating Missouri 2-0. The Red Raiders (33-9, 6-4, 5th place Big 12) and Talley out dueled the Tigers (31-7, 9-4, 3rd place Big 12) and their ace Chelsea Thomas in the series opener.
Talley sat down 19 consecutive batters following a 1st inning triple and Missouri could never muster a potent threat on the night. The one-hitter marks the first in Talley’s career as her previous best start in a shutout was a five-hit performance against Texas State on Feb. 24 during the Texas Shootout.

The Red Raiders led off three-straight innings with a hit before finally capitalizing in the sixth as Emily Bledsoe and Hall recorded back-to-back singles, only to score later in the frame off a wild pitch and a bases-loaded walk to Raven Richardson. The win snapped a 22-game home winning streak for Missouri, a run that was the third-longest in the country heading into the series. Tech also came into the series having lost six-straight to the Tigers.

Tech goes for the series victory on Saturday at 2 pm and a chance to jump up in the Big 12 standings against the Tigers.
