Freshman Trevor Coleman
May 6, 2007
AUSTIN, Texas-- - Freshman Trevor Coleman leads the Mizzou with eight home runs on the season after a two-homer game on Sunday as the Tigers defeated Texas 5-4 to take the series victory. The series win is the ninth for the Tigers in 10 series this season.
With the Missouri trailing by two after one inning, Coleman hit a solo home run in the top of the second to cut the UT lead in half. Coleman then hit his second round tripper of the day in the top of the sixth inning, a two-run shot that broke a 2-2 tie.
MU improves to 33-13 overall and 14-7 in the Big 12, while Texas falls to 38-14 on the year and 18-6 in league play. The Tigers have defeated UT in five of the last six meetings.
Texas scored twice in the bottom of the first inning, getting RBI base hits from Chance Wheeless and Russell Moldenhauer.
Coleman put MU on the board with his first home run in the second and the Tigers tied the game with a run in the top of the fifth, as junior Brock Bond delivered a two-out RBI singled to drive in senior Gary Arndt.
In the sixth, junior Jacob Priday led off with a triple, which was his ninth-straight hit that has gone for extra bases. Coleman followed Priday with the two-run homer to put the Tigers ahead. Mizzou added a third run in the inning, as freshman Aaron Senne singled and advanced to third on a single by sophomore Kyle Mach. He would score on an errant pick off attempt at first by UT pitcher Pat McCrory.
The Longhorns' Preston Clark hit a solo home run in the bottom of the seventh inning and Texas added a run in the eighth on a sacrifice fly by Wheeless to cut the lead to one.
Junior Brock Bond flew out in the first inning, then singled in his next four at-bats, finishing 4-for-5 with one RBI.
The Tigers will return home next weekend to host Oklahoma in their final home series of the year. The three-game set with the Sooners will get underway at 6:30 p.m. on Friday at Taylor Stadium.
