MYRTLE BEACH, S.C.-- - The Mizzou Baseball took its first loss of the season on Sunday, as Albany defeated the Tigers 5-3 in the final day of the Beach Blast in Myrtle Beach. S.C. MU finishes 3-1 on the weekend and drops to 6-1 on the year.
The Tigers scored first, getting a run in the bottom of the third inning without recording a hit. Sophomore 2B Trevor Helms reached on a walk, advanced to second on a wild pitch and went to third on a error by the catcher. He was driven in on a sacrifice fly by senior DH Ryan Rallo.
Albany responded with two run in the top of the fourth inning to take the lead away from MU. Albany's second baseman connected on a two-run home run by Kirt Zimniewicz to give the Great Danes' the 2-1 lead.
It was Missouri's turn to repond in the bottom of the fourth, as the Tigers scored a run to tie the game at two. Sophomore RF James Boone, who reached on a single, was driven in by sophomore CF Josiah Holst with the tying run.
Albany regained the lead with three runs in the top of the eighth inning, taking a 5-2 advantage over Mizzou.
Facing the three-run deficit, MU got one run back in the eighth, as sophomore SS Zane Taylor connected for his first home run on the year, a solo shot to right field. However, that was as close as they would get, falling by a score of 5-3.
Sophomore RHP Nick Admire started his first game of the year for Missouri and pitched three shutout innings, allowing just one hit, striking out two and walking none.
After throwing out two baserunners on Saturday, senior C Brad Flanders gunned down three Albany runners attempting to steal.
Mizzou will open up the home schedule next weekend as Youngstown State visit Taylor Stadium/Simmons Field. The first game of the series will start at 4 p.m. on Friday. Game two will start at 2 p.m. on Saturday and the final game of the series will begin at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
