March 19, 2014
COLUMBIA, Mo. - For the second consecutive day, a Mizzou (11-9) pitcher set a career mark with innings in a winning effort, this time Peter Fairbanks (St. Louis, Mo.) with a solid 4.2 innings in a 4-3 win over UW-Milwaukee (3-10) Wednesday night (March 19) at Taylor Stadium. Fairbanks allowed one unearned run in his time on the mound, limiting the Panthers to just four hits and striking out a batter en-route to his second career win. The winning effort pushed Mizzou to a 7-3 mark on the 10-game homestand and 8-3 in its last 11 games.
Eric Anderson (Highlands Ranch, Colo.) extended his on-base streak to 13 games and his hitting streak to five in the first inning, finishing the game with two runs scored. Mizzou's other two runs were courtesy of Dillon Everett (Phoneix, Ariz.), with Ryan Howard (St. Charles, Mo.), Shane Segovia (Sinton, Texas) and Kendall Keeton (Columbia, Tenn.) all tallying RBIs in the win. Segovia pushed his hitting streak to a team-leading seven games in the contest.
Anderson singled to lead off the game for Mizzou, and a RBI single by Howard brought him in for an early 1-0 lead. Mizzou struck again in the second inning, extending its lead to 3-0 as a RBI single from Anderson scored Everett with two outs and Segovia then brought him in with another single.
The Panthers cut the Tigers' lead to two runs in the top of the fourth, taking advantage of an error and a two-out single for their first run of the game. Ryan Phillips (Columbia, Mo.) replaced Fairbanks with two on and two outs in the top of the fifth, forcing a flyout to right to end the inning. Everett padded the Mizzou lead by scoring another run, this time off a two-out single from Keeton for a 4-1 edge through five.
UW-Milwaukee answered back, taking advantage of having its first two hitters reach as the Panthers pushed a run across against Phillips in the top of the sixth to cut deficit to 4-2. Andrew Hohn (N. Little Rock, Ark.) took over for Phillips in the seventh, holding Milwaukee scoreless in the inning. Austin Tribby (Springfield, Mo.) entered in the top of the eighth inning for his SEC-leading 14th appearance, throwing a scoreless frame to hold on to the 4-2 lead. Breckin Williams (Oronogo, Mo.) pitched the ninth inning, allowing one run but holding on to get the save.
Mizzou heads to Oxford, Miss., this weekend to take on the No. 14 Ole Miss Rebels in a three-game set starting Friday (March 21) at 6 p.m. Stay up to date with Mizzou baseball by following the team on Twitter (@MizzouBaseball) or by stopping by MUTigers.com.
