LEXINGTON, Ky. - Nicole Hudson's solo home run in the top of the ninth inning Friday lifted the Missouri Tigers to a 2-1 victory against the Kentucky Wildcats in Southeastern Conference softball.
After Hudson singled home a run to tie the game in the top of the seventh, the senior belted the game-winner two innings later. It is the 43rd home run of her career.
Chelsea Thomas was the winning pitcher, going the distance. She struck out seven, while allowing a run on five hits and two walks.
Missouri (28-8 overall, 12-6 SEC, ranked No. 11) and Kentucky (35-15, 10-9, ranked 19th) will resume their series at noon today.
