The 7th ranked Mizzou softball team showed its offensive fire powers in its doubleheader against Georgia Tech, winning two-five inning games by scores of 8-0 and 16-0 on Saturday at University Field. The Tigers hit five home runs, and four doubles, including grand slams from sophomore 3B Angela Randazzo and senior catcher Rachel Hay.
The Tigers improve to 17-2 overall.
Senior All-American pitcher Chelsea Thomas picked up both pitching wins to improve to 9-1. She tossed 3.0 shutout innings in the first game, striking out five and allowing just one hit. Thomas also surrendered only one hit in the second game shutout, working 4.0 innings with another five strikeouts and one walk.
Mizzou’s 16 runs in the second game were the most for a Tiger squad since a 16-0 win over Drake on April 2, 2008.
