March 10, 2007
DALLAS, Texas-- - Mizzou extended its winning streak to seven as it scored 25 runs in two games to pick up a pair of victories on Saturday in Dallas. The Tigers defeated Texas State 14-4 before picking up an 11-7 win over Dallas Baptist.
Trailing by two runs early in the nightcap against DBU, the Tigers scored three unearned runs in the fourth inning to take the lead. Two errors by the Patriots aided Missouri in the fourth, as did RBI singles by junior Brock Bond and sophomore Ryan Lollis.
Missouri (13-5) put together another three-run inning in the sixth as Bond added another RBI hit and senior John McKee delivered an RBI base hit.
Bond scored four runs against Dallas-Baptist, going 3-for-3 with two RBI. McKee added a two-run home run in the top of the eighth inning, finishing with three runs batted in. The homer was McKee's third of the season.
The Patriots attempted to rally in the bottom of the ninth, but a double play turned by the Tigers closed out the doubleheader sweep.
Freshman Greg Folgia pitched three innings out of the bullpen and earned the win, his second of the season. Fellow freshman Kyle Gibson picked up his third victory of the year, as he pitched the final 3.2 innings of the game to close out the win.
Earlier in the day sophomore Kyle Mach had a career-high four hits in Mizzou's contest with Texas State recording the first four-hit game for MU this season.
Three Tigers drove in three runs against Texas State including freshman Trevor Coleman, who picked up all three of his RBI on a three-run home run in the top of the eighth inning.
Bond drove in three without recording a hit. He was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded in the second inning and had a sacrifice fly in the third. In the ninth, junior Evan Frey tripled and scored on a ground out by Bond.
With a 2-1 lead after the first inning, the Tigers exploded for six runs in the top of the second inning to open up a 7-2 advantage. Each team would plate a run in the third to make it an 8-3 game.
Sophomore Aaron Crow remained unbeaten, picking up the victory against Texas State to move to 3-0 on the year.
Mizzou will return to Taylor Stadium on Wednesday March 14 to face Saint Louis at 6:30 p.m. in the first of five-straight days of home games.
