Senior Jacob Priday
April 16, 2008
COLUMBIA, Mo. - - Mizzou senior Jacob Priday became Mizzou's career home run record holder as he hit a pair of homers in the Tigers 16-9 win over William Woods on Wednesday night at Taylor Stadium. Priday was 3-for-3 on the night with three RBI and four runs scored. He now has 46 career homers, breaking the previous MU record of 45 held by Mike Rogers.
Priday also broke the school record for career RBI as his three runs batted in on Wednesday gave him 223 for his career. In his last five games, Priday is hitting .611 (11-for-18) with seven home runs and 17 RBI.
The Tigers (26-9) fell behind William Woods 5-0 after two innings, before scoring 16 runs over the next five innings.
Priday put Missouri on the board with his first home run of the game to lead off the fourth inning. The Tigers scored three times in the fourth, adding an RBI double from senior Dan Pietroburgo and a bases loaded walk by senior Kurt Calvert.
Pietroburgo connected for his second double of the game in the fifth inning, driving in his second run of the night.
Mizzou took the lead with a four-run sixth inning, which included a two-run double by junior Kyle Mach along with a run-scoring single from Priday and an RBI double off the bat of sophomore Aaron Senne.
Priday's second home run highlighted a three-run seventh inning and broke the Mizzou record. It was his 13th home run of the year, which ties his career best for homers in a season. That home run followed a two-run shot by Senne, which was his seventh of the year.
Senne drove in two more runs in the bottom of the eighth on a single, which was part of a five-run inning for the Tigers. Senne had five RBI on the night, finishing 3-for-6. Juniors Ryan Lollis and Steve Gray also had RBI singles in the eighth inning.
Missouri will play its next nine games away from Taylor Stadium, beginning with a three-game series at Oklahoma this weekend. Game one in Norman is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. on Friday.
