Creighton softball hangs with No. 13 Missouri, but drops doubleheader

The Creighton softball team dropped a doubleheader by scores of 11-6 and 2-1 at No. 13 Missouri on the Tigers’ University Field Tuesday afternoon.

Creighton (26-23) led game one 5-0 in the second, but Missouri (40-13) responded with five runs in the bottom half of the inning. After Alexis Cantu hit a homer in the third, the Tigers responded with five more in the bottom half of that inning.

In game two, Cantu delivered another home run in the top of the seventh to foil a no-hit bid as the Bluejays lost 2-1.

The Bluejays return to Omaha this weekend to host Providence for Senior Weekend beginning with a doubleheader slated for 12 p.m. CT on Saturday.
