COLUMBIA, Mo. (KOLD News 13) - Arizona’s Sharlize Palacios hit a home run and Devyn Netz tossed a complete-game shutout in the Wildcats’ 1-0 win over Missouri Sunday in the Columbia Regional.

Palacios lead off the fifth inning with a solo homer off Tigers starter Jordan Weber, providing all the offense Netz would need to secure the win.

The Wildcats (36-20) will play Mississippi State in a Super Regional. The Bulldogs advanced Sunday by upsetting Florida State twice.

Netz had to escape one tight spot in the bottom of the fourth, getting Kendyll Bailey to strike out looking with runners at first and second.

Netz struck out two in improving to 14-7. Weber fell to 15-8 with the loss.

The Tigers finished the season 37-22.
