Tied at five in the fifth inning, Mizzou (14-8, 4-1 Big 12) score four runs, all unearned, in the inning. Two KSU errors and a pair of walks, added to three singles led to the four runs. With two outs and two runs already across in the inning, Frey singled to drive in two runs and make it a four-run lead.
Frey finished the day 2-for-5 with the two RBI. During his 10-game hitting streak, Frey is hitting .463 and has driven in eight runs
All of the game's runs were scored between the second and fifth innings.
