COLUMBIA, Mo. - - Missouri junior Aaron Crow set a new school record for wins in a season as he improved to 12-0 after the Tigers' 8-1 victory over Nebraska on Friday night at Taylor Stadium. Crow allowed just one run on four hits and struck out eight in 8.1 innings pitched.
Crow has picked up the win in 12 of his 13 starts this year and his 12 wins surpass the previous Mizzou record of 11 held by Keith Weber (1964), Ron Mathis (1979), Garrett Broshuis (2004) and Nathan Culp (2006).
In addition, Crow moved into sixth place in the Missouri record books for strikeouts in a season with 111 on the year and he is now third on the career strikeouts list with 261.
Nebraska's lone run of the night came when Jake Mort, the second batter of the game, hit his first home run of the year in the first. The Huskers had two hits in the first inning and two more in the second inning, then did not record another hit over the final seven innings of the game.
Sophomore Kyle Gibson came out of the bullpen and retired the only two batters he faced to close out the victory.
Mizzou (35-17, 14-11 Big 12) scored all of eight of its runs in its final two at-bats. With one out in the bottom of the seventh, junior Steve Gray singled and after a pop out, junior Kyle Mach reached on a single. Sophomore Greg Folgia was hit by a pitch to load the bases and junior Ryan Lollis singled to drive in Gray with the game-tying run.
Mizzou then exploded for seven runs in the eighth inning, sending 11 batters to the plate in the frame. Sophomore Aaron Senne and senior Jacob Priday each singled to start the bottom of the eighth and sophomore Trevor Coleman drew a walk to load the bases. Freshman Jonah Schmidt then drove in the go-ahead run with a sacrifice fly. Gray followed by doubling to drive in Priday and Coleman.
The Tigers loaded the bases again in the eighth and Gray scored when junior Ryan Lollis was hit by a pitch. Senne then delivered his second hit of the inning, with a bases-clearing, three-run double.
Gray finished 3-for-3 in the game, with a walk, two RBI and a pair of runs scored. Senne and Lollis each had two-hits in the game.
Game two of the series is Saturday at 2 p.m. with the regular season finale on Sunday at 3:30 p.m. at Taylor Stadium.
