SIU Shuts Out MU Softball
Scoggin stretched her scoreless-inning streak to 33, while allowing only three other baserunners, hitting outfielder Micaela Minner in the first inning and walking Missouri shortstop Andee Allen in the fifth inning. Janessa Roening also reached base on catcher's interference in the fifth. But Scoggin fanned Alli Kennewell with the bases loaded to end the game.
Missouri starting pitcher Megan Dennis was shelled, giving up nine runs on a dozen hits, while striking out only two. Kathy Masterson came on in the fifth inning, but was tagged for three runs on just two hits.
It was the third one-hitter against Mizzou this season, with also losing to North Carolina and top-ranked Texas. MU hopes to take out its frustrations on Wednesday in Lawrence when the Tigers face Kansas at 5:00 p.m.
