WACO, Texas – The Lipscomb Lady Bisons win streak ended at six Saturday with an 8-0 loss to Missouri in the Getterman Classic.
Missouri is No. 14/18 in two different top 25 polls.
After Missouri scored a run in the first inning, it loaded the bases in the second with two singles and a walk with no outs.
