Shane Segovia became the second Tiger this season to post three doubles in a game.
April 8, 2014
COLUMBIA, Mo. - Second baseman Shane Segovia (Sinton, Texas) had three of Mizzou's (15-16) five doubles on Tuesday (April 8) night to set the tone as the Tigers claimed a 9-4 win over in-state rival Missouri State (13-16) at Taylor Stadium. The senior infielder also scored three times and registered one RBI. As a whole, Mizzou tallied 15 hits in the contest with six batters claiming multiple hits against the Bears. Jake Ring (Ingleside, Ill.) had a career day at the dish with three RBI in the contest, scoring once.
Dillon Everett (Phoenix, Ariz.) and Logan Pearson (Bentonville, Ark.) each had two RBI in the midweek contest, giving the bottom four hitters in the order seven RBI in the game. Pearson also scored twice in the Mizzou win, keeping the Tigers a perfect 5-0 in midweek games at Taylor Stadium this season. Starting pitcher Peter Fairbanks (St. Louis, Mo.) went a career-best six innings, striking out four hitters and taking the win to improve to 3-2 on the year.
The Bears struck in the first inning, loading the bases with no outs against Fairbanks and pushing two across for a quick 2-0 lead. Josh Lester (Columbus, Ga.) and Kendall Keeton (Columbia, Tenn.) singled to put two on with two outs for the Tigers in the third inning, the first hits of the game for Mizzou, but both were left stranded. Mizzou got on the board in the fourth, taking advantage of Segovia's leadoff double and walk for Pearson as the home squad knotted the game at two at the end of the frame.
The Tigers claimed the lead in the following inning, with the same part of the order coming through as Pearson and Everett hit in Dylan Kelly (Roswell, Ga.) and Segovia, and then Ring again came through with a RBI single, bringing in two more runs for a four-run edge. Eric Anderson (Highlands Ranch, Colo.) then tripled in Ring for a 7-2 lead after five. Mizzou kept scoring in the sixth, adding two more runs on back-to-back RBI doubles by Segovia and Pearson for a 9-2 lead.
Fairbanks was chased in the seventh, charged with two more runs after his exit, where he gave way to Austin Tribby (Springfield, Mo.) who made his SEC-leading 20th appearance of the year. Breckin Williams (Oronogo, Mo.) entered with runners on the corners and one out, inducing a double play to keep the score 9-4 into the seventh inning stretch. Both teams went scoreless the rest of the way with Williams finishing the game on the mound for the Tigers.
Mizzou heads to Lexington, Ky., to take on the Kentucky Wildcats this weekend. Keep up with Mizzou baseball by following the team on Twitter (@MizzouBaseball) or by checking MUTigers.com.
