LSU softball upsets No. 9 Missouri to advance to Women's College World Series

Rachelle Fico pitched the Lady Tigers past #9 seed Missouri and Simone Heyward made the two biggest plays of the game to send Beth Torino's first LSU team to the Women's College World Series with a 3-1 victory in Game 3 of the NCAA Super Regional.  Heyward threw out a runner at the plate to stop a Missouri threat in the top of the third inning with a double play and followed with a bases loaded 3 RBI double for the game-winning hit in the bottom of the third. Fico made it stand up, as LSU advances to Oklahoma City, OK for a Thursday match-up against No.1 Cal at 2:30pm on ESPN2.
