Sophomore Kyle Mach
March 7, 2007
COLUMBIA, Mo.-- - Mizzou completed a perfect homestand on Wednesday night at Taylor Stadium, taking a 4-2 win over Louisiana-Monroe to move to 5-0 at home.
The Tigers once again were led by great pitching, starting with senior Stephan Holst, who threw four innings in his second start back from arm surgery. He struck out three and allowed two runs - one earned - on three hits.
Sophomore transfer Scooter Hicks made his first appearance on the mound for Missouri on Wednesday, pitching three scoreless innings, allowing just one hit and earning the victory, while freshman Kyle Gibson picked up his second save of the year. Gibson took the mound for the final two innings, not allowing a hit or run to the Warhawks.
The Tigers fell behind as ULM scored an unearned run in the top of the first inning, but sophomore Kyle Mach gave MU the lead as he cleared the bases with a base-loaded double. Mizzou loaded the bases by drawing three-straight walks.
MU (11-5) added a run in the bottom of the seventh inning, as junior Dan Pietroburgo led off with a single, moved to third on a single by sophomore Lee Fischer and scored on a sacrifice fly by junior Evan Frey.
The Tigers will travel to Dallas on Saturday for a pair of games at the Dallas Baptist Classic. They will take on Texas State at 3:30 p.m. before facing Dallas Baptist at 7 p.m. Mizzou will return home March 14 to face Saint Louis at 6:30 p.m. in the first of five-straight days of games at Taylor Stadium.
