The Missouri softball team closed out its regular season on the road with a 9-4 win over the Nebraska Cornhuskers. Outfielder Rhea Taylor set the Big 12 single season stolen base record in the first inning of Sunday’s game.
Taylor led off the game with a single to second base and Taylor swiped her 52nd stolen bag of her freshman campaign. A throwing error by Nebraska catcher Ashley Guile allowed Taylor to advance to third and the Big 12 leader in runs scored (60) advanced home on a passed ball for Missouri’s first run of the day. Taylor entered the afternoon game tied with 2007 Oklahoma State graduate Shanel Scott for the Big 12 single season stolen base record of 51.
The Tigers will play Texas Tech on Saturday in the opening round of the Big 12 tournament in Oklahoma City.
