LAWRENCE, Kan. - - Kansas finished a sweep of Missouri by scoring three runs in the bottom of the 10th inning to take a 10-9 victory on Sunday in Lawrence, Kan. It was the first time the Tigers have been swept since 2008 against Texas A&M.
Mizzou had pulled ahead with two runs in the top of the 10th inning, with both runs scoring on junior Jonah Schmidt's sixth home run of the year. However, KU answered with three in its half of the 10th to take the win.
After a three-run bottom of the first inning for Kansas, the Tigers scored one in the second and then put five runs on the board in the top of the fourth inning. Mizzou batted around in the fourth, getting a two-run double from junior Jesse Santo and an RBI single from senior Michael Liberto to put the Tigers up 6-3. Liberto's single extended his hitting streak to nine games, matching his career long.
Santo added a single in the sixth inning and finished the game 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored.
The Missouri lead was short-lived as the Jayhawks got a three-run home run from Robby Price in the bottom half of the fourth inning tied the score at six. Price hit another homer in his next at-bat, coming in the bottom of the sixth inning, to put Kansas ahead, 7-6.
Mizzou pulled even when junior Brett Nicholas homered in the top of the seventh inning. It was Nicholas' 10th home run of the season and his 56th RBI on the year. He had singles in the second and fourth innings, finishing 3-for-5 with three RBI. It was the 25th game this season in which Nicholas has had at least two hits and was his fifth three-hit game.
The Tigers close the regular season with a six-game homestand, which begins with a three-game series with Nebraska next weekend at Taylor Stadium. The gametimes for the MU-NU series have been adjusted to avoid conflict with the Big 12 Track & Field Championships, which will be taking place at Walton Stadium, adjacent to Taylor Stadium. The first two games of the weekend are set for 7 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, with the series finale scheduled for Noon on Sunday.
