Senior Ian Berger
March 24, 2009
COLUMBIA, Mo. - - Missouri gave up four runs in the final two innings against Illinois-Chicago on Tuesday night at Taylor Stadium and dropped the opener of a two-game series with the Flames by a score of 6-4.
Junior Ian Berger struck out seven batters on the night, giving up four runs on five hits in seven innings pitched. He retired the first seven batters of the game and didn't allow a hit until the fourth inning. He did not factor in the decision.
Junior Aaron Senne was hit by a pitch to open the bottom of the fourth inning and senior Kyle Mach followed by drawing a walk. Gebhart then singled to drive in Senne, breaking a 1-1 tie and junior Michael Liberto followed with a double to center to drive in Mach, giving Mizzou a two-run lead.
The Flames cut the lead to one with a run in the top of the fifth, but Missouri scored once in the bottom half of the inning to take the lead back to two. Junior Trevor Coleman reached on a UIC error to open the Tigers' half of the fifth and later scored on a sacrifice fly by Senne.
UIC (7-12) would take the lead with a three-run eighth inning, which included a lead off double by Tony Altavilla, a two-run single by Andy Leonard and an RBI single from Jason Ganek. The Flames added a run in the ninth to take the 6-4 win.
Missouri (11-12) and UIC will meet again at Taylor Stadium on Wednesday afternoon. First pitch is set for 3 p.m., which is an hour earlier than the originally scheduled time.
