COLUMBIA, Mo.- - A two-run ninth inning led Texas to a 6-4 win over Missouri on Saturday at Taylor Stadium, as the Longhorns took a 2-0 lead in the series. Mizzou is now 27-24 on the season and 10-15 in the Big 12. The regular season finale is Sunday. First pitch for that game has been moved up to Noon to accommodate Texas' travel plans.
Saturday's game was tied at four heading to the ninth inning before Texas scored twice without recording a hit. An error, a walk, a sacrifice bunt, a wild pitch and sacrifice fly lead to the two runs in the top of the ninth inning for the Longhorns.
Texas (45-8, 23-3 Big 12) scored first, getting a pair of hits in the top of the second inning and scoring once on Jordan Etier's single to go up 1-0.
Sophomore Ryan Gebhart delivered Missouri's first hit of the game in the bottom of the third inning. It would be the first of four-straight hits for the Tigers as they pulled ahead by scoring runs on a double from Opel and a single by sophomore Conner Mach.
The Longhorns regained the lead after scoring runs in each of the next two innings, including a home run by Conner Rowe to lead off the top of the fourth. However, Nicholas would give the lead back to Mizzou when he connected on his 11th home run of the season, a two-run shot in the bottom of the fifth inning to put the Tigers up by a score of 4-3.
An RBI from UT's Cohl Walla in the top of the eighth inning tied the game at four before the two-run ninth for Texas gave it the victory.
Texas' Chance Ruffin picked up the win for the Longhorns to move to 6-1. He recorded the save in Friday night's series opener.
