BRANSON MO NEWS: The Missouri softball team will resume its series opening contest against No. 8 Auburn on Saturday after Friday’s game was suspended in the top of the fifth inning following a lengthy rain delay.Auburn held a 3-0 lead with one out in the top of the fifth inning when the home-plate umpire called for a rain delay because of pitchers’ complaints about the slickness of the ball.

The two teams will pick up where they left off at 1 p.m. Saturday, with the previously scheduled Saturday afternoon game set to start 30 minutes after its conclusion.The only runs of the game came courtesy of Auburn’s designated player, Tannon Snow, who smacked a three-run home run off Missouri’s Madi Norman in the top of the fourth inning.
