May 28, 2005
OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla. - - Missouri was eliminated from the Big 12 Tournament after Nebraska defeated the Tigers 17-9 on Saturday night after the Huskers took a 5-4 earlier in the day in the first matchup between the two teams on Saturday.
Mizzou fell behind early after Nebraska put four runs on the board in the top of the first inning and added three more in the third.
The Tigers scored a run in the bottom of the second inning as junior Zane Taylor singled then moved to third on a double by freshman Jacob Priday and scored on a balk by Nebraska's starter Tony Watson. That started a string of six-straight innings in which MU scored.
Missouri scored a run in the third with three-straight hits, the third being a double by junior James Boone to drive in sophomore Trevor Helms. The Tigers scored a run for in the fourth as Priday connected for his eighth home run of the season. Mizzou made it four-straight innings with a run when Boone hit his eighth home run of the year in the fifth inning.
Boone was 3-for-4 on the night with three RBI and two runs scored.
After the Huskers scored three times in the top of the sixth inning, MU put up three runs of its own in the bottom half of the inning. Two of the three Tigers runs in the sixth were unearned after a Cornhusker error.
Priday homered for the second time in the game in the bottom of the seventh inning to bring his season total to a team-leading nine. It is his second two-home run game of the season. He finished 4-for-4 with the two home runs, a double and two RBI on Saturday night.
Nebraska put the game away with a five-run ninth inning as six straight batters reached with one out including a two-run double and a two-run triple.
The 17 runs scored by the Huskers is the most by a Tiger opponent this season and is only the second game MU has given up 10 runs.
Missouri now awaits a selection for the NCAA Tournament. Regional selections and pairings will be announced at 10:30 a.m. on Monday on ESPN.
