It was 4-nothing when Missouri State rallies in the fifth, Stacia Boeckstiegel singles up the middle, that scores Bethany Sullinger and it's 4-1.

Two on for Rebecca McPherson and she hammers this to left, it stays fair and it's gone over the 190 foot mark, a three run homer, it's 4-4.

MSU led 5-4 in the bottom of the sixth, Bradley with the bases loaded and Alyson Clemente takes this deep to left, over the boards and gone a grand slam and Bradley ends Missouri State's season 8-5.
