SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - - No. 8 Missouri defeated Missouri State by a score of 8-4 on Wednesday in Springfield, Mo. in a game that was called after six innings as heavy rain began to fall. Freshman Jonah Schmidt hit his first home run as a Tiger and had a career-high three hits and three RBI in the MU win. He finished the night 3-for-4 and scored twice.
Missouri State (19-11) score twice in the bottom of the first inning on one hit, a pair of walks and a Tiger error. The score remained 2-0 in favor of the Bears heading to the fourth, before Missouri scored eight runs over the next three innings
Mizzou (23-8) took the lead with a three-run top of the fourth inning. The Tigers got RBI doubles by Schmidt and sophomore Greg Folgia, sandwiched around a sacrifice fly from freshman Andrew Thigpen. Folgia had a pair of doubles on Wednesday, finishing 2-for-3 in the game.
Schmidt hit his first collegiate home run in the fifth inning, a two-run shot which easily cleared the fence in left field to give the Tigers a 5-2 lead.
Senior Jacob Priday also hit a towering homer on Wednesday, connecting on a three-run home run in the sixth inning. It was his team-leading seventh of the season and the 40th of his career, which moves him within two of second place on the MU home run record lists and five away from tying the school record.
The Bears scored a run in the bottom of the fifth and one in the sixth. Play was suspended in the top of the seventh inning and after a delay of 20 minutes the game was called.
Missouri will return home for a three-game series against Texas this weekend at Taylor Stadium. Game one of the weekend set will begin at 6:30 p.m. on Friday with junior Aaron Crow (7-0, 0.69 ERA) scheduled to get the start for the Tigers.
