Junior Aaron Crow
March 8, 2008
COLUMBIA, MO. -- - Junior Aaron Crow won for the third time this season as No. 6 Missouri defeated Indiana State, 5-1, on Saturday in its home opener at Taylor Stadium. Crow allowed just two hits in seven scoreless inning of work on the mound. He struck out nine in his longest outing of the season and improved to 3-0 on the year.
The Tigers then put together a four-run fifth inning, which included an RBI double from Lollis and a two-run double from sophomore Aaron Senne. Senior Dan Pietroburgo also delivered an RBI base hit in the inning, with a single to drive in Lollis.
Lollis finished the afternoon 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored and has a team best .400 batting average. Senne's double in the fifth inning extended his hitting streak to six games.
After loading the bases with one out in the third, Crow got a fly out and a ground out to end the inning with no runs crossing the plate. That started a stretch in which Crow retired 11 out of 12 batters.
Indiana State (1-6) scored its lone run of the game in the eighth inning, as Chris Schmidt doubled then scored on a single by Brian Oliver.
Despite the cold temperatures, which never got above 35 degrees, a crowd of 696 turned out for the game. Mizzou and Indiana State will conclude their series with a Sunday doubleheader. The first game of the day will begin at 1 p.m. with the second to follow at Taylor Stadium.
