COLUMBIA - The No. 21 Missouri Tigers softball team fell to the Mississippi State Bulldogs in game two of the series by a score of 8-4.

On the mound, Paige Lowary allowed four hits in three innings before Tori Finucane came in on the mound. Finucane allowed two earned runs on five hits in just 2.1 innings pitched.

Following the loss, Missouri drops to 25-10 on the season and 7-7 in the SEC.

The Tigers got into a bit of a jam early on in the third inning with the bases loaded. But, Emily Crane made a beautiful diving catch to help keep the score tied and get Missouri out of the inning.

Crane also played well offensively as she recorded her team-leading 40th hit of the season and leads the team at a .360 average.

Mississippi State would get on the board in the fourth inning, however, as a single to right and a Mizzou error gave the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead.

Finucane was in more trouble later in the sixth inning with the bases loaded due to two singles and a hit by pitch. Finucane walked the next batter to plate the second run of the day or Mississippi State. The sixth-inning struggles for Finucane continued as she allowed a single with the bases loaded giving the Bulldogs a three-run lead.

Things went from bad to worse later in the sixth inning as a pair of errors added two more runs for the Bulldogs before a two-run home run made it 7-0 after the top of the sixth inning.

Missouri began a bit of a come back in the bottom of the sixth inning as Corrin Genovese and Angela Randazzo opened the inning with a pair of hits for the Tigers. Kelsea Roth singled to load the bases as a sacrifice fly and ground out helped score two runs for Missouri. The Tigers weren't finished in the sixth inning as Morgan Walters hit a RBI single to right field to cut the deficit to four runs.

The offense came too late for Missouri, however, as the Bulldogs added another run in the seventh inning to seal the victory.

Missouri will wrap up its three-game series at home against Mississippi State Sunday, Apr. 12 at 2:30 p.m. CT.
