On the coattails of her first ever Big 12 no-hitter last week…Pleasantville native Chelsea Thomas earned her 12th and what will be her final Big 12 Pitcher of the Week award as Missouri will be moving to the Southeastern Conference next season. Thomas was dominating last week, and that may be understating it, as she threw a no-hitter in a series opener Friday night against Oklahoma State…she came out of the bullpen to pick up the save Saturday, and pitched all ten innings to record her second shutout of the series in a 1-0 win on Sunday. She had a zero E-R-A for the week and has now lowered her E-R-A for the season to 1.07 and holds a 23-7 record on the season as the Tigers will host an N-C-A-A Regional this Friday against Illinois State.
