Feb. 20, 2000
NATCHITOCHES, LA ___ -- Junior right fielder J.R. Warner went 5-for-5 with two doubles, four runs batted in and two runs scored and junior pitcher Pete Sansone allowed only two hits over seven innings as Missouri completed a four-game trip to Louisiana with a 10-2 victory over the Centenary Gents. The game was a part of the Ken Moran Trucking Demon Baseball Classic hosted by Northwestern State University.
Sansone didn't allow a baserunner until Centenary's Ralph Hicks singled with two outs in the fourth inning. He didn't allow another hit until the sixth when Michael Hicks doubled in the Gents first run. By then, though, the Tigers led 7-1. Sansone, a transfer from St. Louis University, earned his first Missouri victory (1-0) by allowing only an unearned run and two hits. He had six strikeouts and no walks.
Warner, an honorable mention All-Big 12 performer last season when he hit .333, was hitting just .208 entering Sunday's game. He singled during a two-run Missouri first inning and doubled home two runs during a four-run MU fourth. He bunted for a single to lead off the third inning and singled again in the sixth. He doubled to drive in two more runs as the Tigers plated three in the eighth.
Freshman Jayce Tingler got his first start for the Tigers in center field and had two hits and scored three times from his leadoff spot in the lineup.
During Missouri's trip south, Coach Tim Jamieson got strong pitching from starters Logan Dale, Jon Harris and Sansone. Dale and Sansone each allowed only two hits in their victories while Harris tossed a four-hitter in Thursday's win over Nicholls State.
Hicks (1-2) allowed seven runs over six innings and took the loss for Centenary (5-10).
Missouri returns home to entertain the Lincoln University Blue Tigers at Taylor Stadium at Simmons Field at 3 p.m., Tuesday. The Tigers open Big 12 Conference play next weekend with a three-game series at Texas Tech.
