Senior Jayce Tingler hit his first career home run in his 618th at bat in a win at SEMO
March 12, 2003
CAPE GIRARDEAU, Mo. - The Missouri baseball team's bats were quiet, but the Tigers took advantage of 12 walks to beat Southeast Missouri State, 9-8, at Capaha Park.
The Tigers (11-5) never trailed in the contest, but came as close to playing extra frames as they could. MU allowed SEMO (3-8) to put the tying run on third with only one out in the bottom of the ninth, but from there sophomore reliever Travis Wendte (Moore, Okla.) clamped down to earn the save, his third of the season.
Missouri jumped out to a 3-0 lead in the first inning without recording a hit. After getting two outs, SEMO pitcher Bill Clayton issued three straight walks to load the bases. Junior catcher Brad Flanders (Smithville, Mo.) popped into right field, but reached safely when the Indians' outfielder misplayed the ball, allowing all three base runners to score.
The Tigers added another run in the second when senior outfielder Jayce Tingler (Smithville, Mo.) launched his first career home run over the right field fence. The round-tripper extended Tingler's hitting streak to 12 games, and came in his 618th career at-bat.
Garrett Broshuis (Advance, Mo.) earned the win for Mizzou in what amounted to a homecoming for the sophomore right-hander. Broshuis threw three shutout innings before running into trouble in the fourth and fifth. The sophomore pitched five innings, allowing six hits and five runs, four earned.
Missouri opened up a six-run lead in the fifth, when the Tigers recorded four runs, again without getting a hit. MU took advantage of SEMO relievers Jon Nourie and Stan Skakalski for six walks and a hit batsman in the frame.
After letting the Indians pull within one in the seventh, the Tigers added what proved to be an important insurance run in the eighth. Freshman designated hitter James Boone (Clinton, Okla.) reached on a one-out fielder's choice that scored Tingler, who led off the inning by drawing a walk.
Freshman Nick Admire (Lebanon, Mo.) pitched three solid innings of relief for the Tigers, the longest appearance of his career. Admire allowed just three hits and two runs - one earned - while recording a career-high three strikeouts. The Tiger staff did not issue a walk in the game.
The Tigers return to action tomorrow night when they host Maryville University at Taylor Stadium. The first pitch is scheduled for 6:30 p.m.
