COLUMBIA, MO — Texas A&M Softball suffered a 4-0 loss at Missouri in the series finale Saturday at Missouri Softball Stadium.

The Tigers (27-18, 10-8 SEC) took a 3-0 lead in the first taking advantage of an error in right field and a two-run homer from Kim Wert. Missouri added to its lead in the fifth as Regan Nash, who reached on a dropped third strike, scored on a Jazmyn Rollin single to center.

The Aggies were ultimately doomed by 10 runners left on base, including three in the second inning when the Maroon & White loaded the bases with two outs, but couldn't push a run across.

Kendall Potts was saddled with the loss as the junior allowed three runs on three hits with a walk and two strikeouts. Payton McBride threw two innings of relief and gave up a run and a hit with two strikeouts.
