Senior Aaron Senne
March 23, 2010
COLUMBIA, Mo.- - Missouri matched its longest winning streak of the season after taking a 9-0 victory over Arkansas-Pine Bluff on Tuesday at Taylor Stadium for its fourth-straight win. The Tigers, who shutout North Dakota last Friday, 6-0, recorded consecutive shutouts for the first time since it did it against Baylor in March of 2008.
Freshman Blake Brown put the Tigers on the board by hitting his first career home run in the bottom of the second inning. Brown's home run was the first of two two-run homers in the inning as senior Aaron Senne added a two-run shot. The Tigers also scored a run in the inning on a ground out by freshman Kale Gaden, to lead 5-0 after the two innings of play.
Senne's home run was his team-leading sixth of the year and the 32nd of his career, which moved him into a tie for eighth place with Chris Wyrick (1990-93) on the career homer list at Mizzou. He has 170 career RBI, which is eighth most in school history and one away from moving into a tie for sixth place.
Mizzou (11-6) stretched its lead to eight with a three-run bottom of the third inning. Freshman Brannon Champagne drove in two on a one-out single and Gaden picked up his second RBI of the game with a sacrifice fly which drove in Champagne. The Tigers added an unearned run in the fourth inning.
Junior Jeff Scardino picked up his first win as a Tiger, turning in five scoreless innings of work in his second start of the year. Scardino allowed just four hits, struck out four and did not give up a walk. He faced the minimum through three innings, including getting double plays in the first and second innings.
Senne had two hits in the game, as did a trio of freshmen in Brown, Champagne and Eric Garcia. Senne, Brown, Champagne and Gaden each drove in a pair of runs.
Missouri and Arkansas-Pine Bluff (4-11) will meet again on Wednesday at Taylor Stadium. First pitch is set for 3 p.m.
