Junior Aaron Crow
April 4, 2008
COLUMBIA, Mo. - - Junior Aaron Crow recorded his third complete game shutout of the season and extended his scoreless inning streak to 42.2 as No. 4 Missouri defeated Oklahoma State, 3-0, on Friday in front of 1,433 fans at Taylor Stadium. Crow struck out seven and did not walk a batter to improve to 7-0 on the year.
Crow has not allowed a run in Big 12 Conference play this year and has only given up four runs in 52.0 innings pitched on the season, holding a .069 ERA. His last run allowed came in his second start of the season, against Cal on Feb. 29. He has picked up the victory in each of his seven starts this year.
The shutout is the sixth of Crow's career and is the fifth thrown by MU pitchers this season.
After Coleman's RBI single, OSU starting pitcher Andrew Oliver retired 11 of the next 12 batters, including seven straight at one point.
In the sixth, senior Jacob Priday led off with his sixth home run of the season on a line drive that cleared the wall in left field. It was his 39th career homer, putting him alone in third place in the MU record book. He is three behind second-place Ryan Fry and six behind school record holder Mike Rogers.
Junior Kyle Mach, who had a triple to lead off the second inning, made two plays at third base to help keep Crow's scoreless inning streak in tact. In the first inning, Mach caught a line drive off the bat of Dean Green. Then in the sixth inning, Mach made a leaping grab on what looked to be a double by Matt Hague and then threw out Michael Dabbs, who was attempting to score from third base.
Missouri managed just five hits, a season low, against Oklahoma State (18-9, 4-6) on Friday.
Game two of the three-game series is Saturday at 4 p.m. The game will be broadcast by the Mizzou Sports Network and can be seen on FSN Midwest and MetroSports. Junior Ian Berger is scheduled to get the start for the Tigers on Saturday.
