May 29, 2010
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.
The Red Raiders tied the score with a pair of runs in the top of the sixth, getting RBI hits from Scott LeJune and Taylor Ashby.
With the game tied and two outs in the bottom of the seventh inning, Mizzou plated a run on a Texas Tech error and then got a three-run home run from sophomore Ryan Gebhart. Gebhart's first career homer capped a four-run seventh inning, putting the Tigers up 7-3.
Senior Aaron Senne finished the season with a .400 average. He is the first Tiger to hit at least .400 since Mike Rogers in 1986. Senne will leave Missouri as the school's career record holder with 291 hits.
Junior Zack Hardoin pitched four innings out of the bullpen, striking out seven to pick up the win.
