SAN DIEGO, Calif. -- - No. 5 Mizzou wrapped up its four-game trip to San Diego with a 6-3 win over Cal Poly on Sunday in the final day of the USD Tournament. The Tigers were 3-1 at this weekend's tournament and stand at 6-2 on the year and now get ready for their home opener on Tuesday.
Cal Poly opened its half of the first inning with four-straight hits and scored twice to take the early lead on Sunday. The Tigers, however, would score six unanswered runs before the Mustangs added a run in the ninth.
Mizzou took the lead with a three-run third inning, getting RBI singles from junior Austin Holt, senior Jacob Priday and sophomore Aaron Senne. The Tigers stretched the lead to two runs when Holt delivered his second RBI single of the game in the fourth inning to drive in senior Lee Fischer.
Priday's second RBI of the day came in the fifth inning when he hit his second home run of the season. The solo shot put Priday in a tie for fifth on the all-time home runs list at Missouri, joining Ryan Stegall and Dave Silvestri with 35 career homers.
Priday finished the day 2-for-5 to extend his hitting streak to seven games. Holt and Senne each had a pair of hits on Sunday for Missouri. Senne has had a hit in each of the last five games.
After allowing the two runs in the first inning, sophomore Kyle Gibson settled in and came away with the victory to move to 2-0 on the season. Gibson struck out four, giving up two runs on eight hits in six innings pitched.
"It was a good weekend," Head Coach Tim Jamieson said. "To win three-out-of-four on the road against good competition is good. I'm pleased with our effort and with the results. However, we can get better and need continue to improve."
Missouri will now get set for its home opener, Tuesday against Western Illinois. Game time is set for 6:30 p.m. CT at Taylor Stadium. Tickets for the home opener are available for just $1. For ticket information, call 1-800-CAT-PAWS (884-PAWS in Columbia) or visit mutigers.com. Ticket can also be purchased at the Taylor Stadium Ticket Office starting two hours prior to first pitch.
