COLUMBIA, Mo.- - A pair of seniors drove in all four of Missouri's runs on Saturday night, as the Tigers celebrated Senior Day with a 4-2 win over Cal State-Bakersfield at Taylor Stadium.

Senior Kyle Mach was 3-for-4 on the night, extending his hitting streak to 14 games. He had singles in the fourth and fifth innings, driving in two runs with his hit in the fifth. He also doubled with one out in the eighth.

The 14-game hitting streak for Mach is the longest by a Tiger since Jacob Priday hit safely in 14-straight games in 2006.

Senior Ryan Lollis drove in the first runs of the game in the bottom of the third inning. His single came after freshman Garrison McLagan and junior Michael Liberto singled in the inning. McLagan has had a hit in all four games he has played in.

Cal State-Bakersfield cut into the lead with a run in the top of the sixth and added a run in the ninth.

Senior Scooter Hicks started and pitched four shutout innings, allowing just two hits and striking out two. He was credited with the win. Sophomore Brad Buehler pitched the ninth and picked up his sixth save of the season.

With the win, Mizzou improved to 31-23 on the season, while the Roadrunners fell to 11-33.

Missouri will conclude its regular season at 1 p.m. on Sunday against Cal State-Bakersfield.
