Only two games went on in the world of softball. And as we expected, both Mississippi State and Auburn won those games.
The Tigers needed a bit more effort than the Bulldogs did to get the W. Auburn was deadlocked with SIU Edwardsville after six innings of play but found a way to win after Carmyn Greenwood connected on a single to center field to win the game.
Mississippi State meanwhile held a 4-1 advantage after three innings and would preserve that through the entirety of the game. Emily Heimberger had a two-hit day against Fresno State as she collected two singles and a run scored.
