Illinois Softball comes away from the Mississippi State weekend tournament with an 11-8 record on the season.
Game 1: Mississippi State 9, Illinois 5
In the first game of the double header, Emily Oestreich lasted just 1.1 innings, allowing 7 hits and 8 Earned Runs. The Illini offense tried their best to overcome this insurmountable lead, but ultimately a 4-4 day from Carly Thomas and a 2-hit performance from Sam Acosta were not enough to climb back.
Game 2: Mississippi State 12, Illinois 1
In game two of the double header, the Illini did not fare much better. Taylor Edwards allowed 8 H and 7 ER in 3.0 IP. The bats went cold, with Maddi Doane providing two of the five hits on the day for the Illini, who were swept in Friday’s double header.
