TUCSON, Ariz.- - Mizzou finished the Collegiate Cactus Classic with a 2-1 extra-inning win over New Mexico State on Sunday in Tucson. The Tigers scored the game-winning run without a hit in the bottom of the 10th inning.
Freshmen Dane Opel and Kale Gaden each drew a walk to open the bottom of the 10th inning. After two outs were recorded, freshman Brannon Champagne walked to load the bases and sophomore Conner Mach was hit by a pitch to drive in the game-winning run.
The win improves the Tigers to 2-1 on the year after the opening weekend of play.
Missouri took the first lead of the game with a run in the bottom of the third inning. Gaden drew a walk to lead off the inning and later scored on an Aggie error. New Mexico State tied the score at one, scoring a run on a sacrifice fly in the top of the fifth inning.
Junior Aaron Blunt made his first start at Missouri after transferring from Mineral Area College and turned in five innings of work, allowing just one run on seven hits. He struck out one and walked one.
For the second-straight day, the MU bullpen was impressive. Junior Tyler Clark relieved Blunt in the sixth inning and, after allowing a leadoff double, Clark struck out the next three batters to get out of the inning. Junior Zack Hardoin then turned in 1.2 scoreless innings of work, striking out two.
