OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla.- - Mizzou concluded its 2010 season by claiming a 7-3 win over Texas Tech at the Big 12 Championship in Oklahoma City, Okla. The Tigers wrapped up play in the conference tournament with a 2-1 record.

Missouri finishes the year with a 29-26 mark, snapping its string of seven-consecutive 30-win seasons.

The Tigers scored the game's first two runs in the bottom of the second inning without the help of a hit. MU drew three walks, had a hit batter and scored the runs on a groundout and a wild pitch. Missouri's first hit did not come until sophomore Conner Mach doubled with two outs in the third inning.

After Texas Tech got one run in the top of the third on a single from Michael Reed, MU junior Brett Nicholas homered to lead off the fifth inning for Mizzou to put the Tigers back up by two at 3-1. The home run was Nicholas' 12th of the season.
