COLUMBIA, Mo.-- - Mizzou scored in double digits for the fourth time in its last five games, taking a 12-7 win over Texas Tech on Saturday at Taylor Stadium. The Tigers used a pair of four-run innings and a three-run inning to take a 2-0 lead in the weekend series with the Red Raiders.

Freshman Greg Folgia relieved MU starter Rick Zagone in the fifth inning and did not allow a hit, pitching the final 4.1 innings out of the bullpen. Folgia took the victory to move to 4-3 on the year.

Mizzou (30-12, 11-6 Big 12) scored first with a run in the bottom of the first inning when junior Jacob Priday tripled to drive in sophomore Evan Frey.

After Texas Tech (25-20, 7-12) took the lead with a four-run top of the third inning, the Tigers responded with four runs in the bottom half of the third. Priday drove in two more runs as he picked up his second extra-base hit with a double in the third inning. Freshman Trevor Coleman followed Priday with an RBI single and sophomore Kyle Mach drove in a run with a sacrifice fly.

Missouri added three runs in the fourth inning, with all three scoring on Ryan Lollis' third home run of the season. The three-run shot raised Lollis' team-leading RBI total to 40.

The Red Raiders cut the lead to one with three runs in the top of the fifth inning, but a four-run sixth inning gave the lead back to Mizzou. Coleman drew a bases loaded walk and then freshman Aaron Senne doubled to push two more runs across the plate. Coleman also scored in the inning, crossing the plate on a ground out by Mach.

The top two Tigers in the lineup accounted for seven of Missouri's runs on Saturday as junior Evan Frey scored four times and junior Brock Bond had three runs scored. Bond was 1-for-2 and walked three times, while Frey had two hits on the afternoon. Lollis and Priday each had a pair of hits on the day and both drove in three runs.

Zagone allowed seven runs on 10 hits in 4.2 innings before being relieved by Folgia, taking his second-straight no decision.

The final game of the three-game series is scheduled for 1 p.m. on Sunday at Taylor Stadium. Sunday's game will be broadcast on Fox Sports Midwest, Fox Sports Southwest and MetroSports.
