Junior Kyle Gibson
April 3, 2009
COLUMBIA, Mo. - - Junior Kyle Gibson struck out 15 batters, one off his career high, on Friday at Taylor Stadium, but took the loss as Missouri fell to No. 10 Oklahoma by a score of 2-1.
Gibson went the full nine innings, picking up his third complete game of the year. It is his third complete game in his last four Big 12 starts. He gave up two runs on six hits and walked just one. Gibson retired the first 11 OU batters of the game and faced the minimum through the first four innings. He struck out the side in order in the third and eighth innings.
Oklahoma put the first runs of the game on the board in the top of the fifth inning, getting three-straight hits with a double from J. T. Wise and singles from Casey Johnson and Garrett Buechele. Wise scored on a double steal and Johnson crossed the plate on Buechele's base hit.
Oklahoma starter Andrew Doyle struck out six in eight innings of work, allowing one run on four hits. He moved to 4-2 with the win.
Lollis provided a highlight reel catch in the bottom of the eighth inning, as he stole a home run from OU's Aaron Baker. Lollis leaped, reached over the wall and pulled what would have been a two-run homer back. He then doubled off Bryant Hernandez at second.
Senior Steve Gray had two of Missouri's four hits on the night, finishing 2-for-3 in the game.
The series will continue on Saturday at 2 p.m. Saturday's game will be televised by the Mizzou Sports Network and can be seen on FS Midwest and MetroSports.
