Sophomore Rick Zagone
Feb. 23, 2007
MILLINGTON, Tenn.-- - Mizzou sophomore Rick Zagone set a new career high with nine strikeouts against BYU on Friday, however the Tigers fell by a score of 4-1 in 10 innings at the Service Academy Classic in Millington, Tenn. Playing in its first extra-inning game of the 2007 season, Missouri gave up three runs in the top of the 10th inning and dropped to 5-3 on the season.
After three of the first four Cougars to the plate in the first inning singled, Zagone would settle in and retire 10 of the next 11 batters he faced. He allowed just the one run on seven hits and walked only one in 8.1 innings on the mound.
BYU starter Jake Wortham was just as strong, retiring the Tigers in order in all but one inning. He retired the final 19 batters he faced before being lifted in the 10th inning. He allowed just one unearned run on two hits and struck out seven.
Missouri's only two hits of the first nine innings came in the bottom of the third inning. Trailing 1-0, the Tigers tied the game when freshman Greg Folgia scored when senior John McKee reached on the second of back-to-back errors by the BYU third baseman.
The Cougars had taken a 1-0 lead in the first inning, as Leon Johnson singled to lead off the game and two batters later scored on a single by Ken Walton.
BYU freshman Steven Wells led off the top of the 10th inning with a pinch-hit home run to give the Cougars the lead. They would add two more runs for the three-run victory.
The Tigers will be back in action at USA Stadium later tonight, taking on Akron at 7 p.m. They will then face Memphis at 4 p.m. on Saturday and Navy at 11:30 a.m. on Sunday.
