| No Comments | No TrackBacks

Missouri opened up the Big 12 Conference schedule last weekend, going 1-2 at Texas A&M. The Tigers could have easily won two, maybe even three games in the series. Mizzou gave up two runs to the Aggies in the first inning of Friday's game, but settled and allowed just one run the rest of the way. On Saturday, Missouri took a lead into the ninth inning before Texas A&M rallied with a pair of singles and a walk-off double to pick up the come-from-behind victory. The Tigers avoided sweep with a 13-4 win in the series finale on Sunday behind a 4-for-6 day from senior Aaron Senne.


Player of the Week

Aaron Senne - Senior - Rochester, Minn.


Aaron Senne was 6-for-14 in the Tigers' three games against Texas A&M last weekend and had three doubles on the weekend, which moved him into a tie for first on Missouri's career doubles list. After recording a hit in each of the first two games of the series, Senne matched a career high with a four-hit game on Sunday, driving in two runs and scoring three times. He had a hit in each of his first four at-bats, including RBI doubles in the third and fourth innings. With the two doubles Sunday, Senne moved into a tie with Ryan Fry (1995-98) on Missouri's career doubles list. On the year, Senne is hitting .395 with seven home runs, nine doubles and 23 RBI.


Pitcher of the Week

Eric Anderson - Freshman - Highlands Ridge, Colo.


Freshman Eric Anderson did not allow a run and gave up just three hits in his first start in Big 12 play on Friday against Texas A&M. Anderson turned in 5.1 scoreless innings pitched. He struck out the first batter of the game and sat down the Aggies in order in the first inning. He retired Texas A&M in order again in the fifth inning and sat down five of the last six batters he faced in the game. Anderson left the game with the lead and was credited with a no decision.
