Sophomore Rick Zagone
March 24, 2007
LINCOLN, Neb.-- - Sophomore Rick Zagone recorded a complete-game win as Mizzou won its 14th straight game with a 4-3 come-from-behind victory over Nebraska on Saturday in Lincoln. The Tigers, who last year did not record their 20th win until April 28, improved to 20-5 on the year and are 2-0 in the Big 12 Conference for the third-straight season.
Zagone threw his second complete game of his career and the first for Missouri this season. He struck out four and allowed three runs on eight hits to move to 4-0 on the season. He faced just three over the minimum over the final five innings of Saturday's game.
Mizzou trailed 3-1 after four innings, but scored the final three runs of the game.
In the top of the fifth inning, sophomore Ryan Lollis connected on his second home run of the season to tie the game at three. Lollis had three RBI on the night, as he drove in the first Mizzou run plating junior Evan Frey on a groundout in the third. It was Lollis' fifth three-RBI game of the season, which leads the team.
Nebraska scored one run in each of the first three innings, getting five of the eight hits in the game in those innings.
"I thought we played very well tonight," Head Coach Tim Jamieson said. "Rick was lights out after the third inning. The last six innings is what Rick is like when he is at his best. We had some timely hits with Frey's hit and Lollis' home run. This is a good win to get, a good gut-check for our team."
The three-game series between the Tigers and Huskers will conclude at 1 p.m. on Sunday in Lincoln. Missouri will remain in the state of Nebraska, as it will face Creighton on Tuesday in Omaha.
