Thomas Ends Season With Loss To Baylor In World Series


Pleasantville’s Chelsea Thomas’ record setting season for the University of Missouri Softball squad has ended. The Tigers lost to fellow Big 12 Conference foe Baylor in a marathon 13 inning game 1-0 Saturday that actually ended Sunday morning as Thomas set an all-time Women’s College World Series record by striking out 19 batters in a single game. Thomas finishes her season as one of the top college pitchers in the nation. She finished with a 32-8 which tied for the most victories in school history, a school record 397 strikeouts this season, and had a .95 E-R-A which was the lowest in the nation. Missouri finishes with a 53-10 record and won a World Series game for the first time in 20 years. Thomas will be a redshirt junior next season.
