Junior Derek Chambers
June 4, 2005
FULLERTON, Calif. - Mizzou picked up its 40th victory of the season as it defeated Harvard 14-6 on Saturday in NCAA Regional play in Fullerton, Calif. on Saturday, marking its first 40-win season since the 1991 team finished 41-20. The win keeps the MU alive in the NCAA Tournament.
The Tigers (40-22) recorded double-digits runs for the 23rd game this season as they scored in all but one inning. The 20 hits are the second most for Missouri this season, behind just the 26-hit performance against Navy on Feb. 25.
Junior Derek Chambers was 4-for-5 with three RBI and two runs scored, extending his hitting streak to 12 games. That matches junior James Boone's 12-game streak earlier in the season for the season-long for MU.
Missouri jumped out to a 7-0 lead with four runs in the top of the first followed by a three-run second inning. Freshman Jacob Priday had the big hit in the first inning, connecting for a two-run double to drive in a pair of runs. Two triples led to the three runs in the second inning. Sophomore Gary Arndt tripled to lead off the inning and junior Derek Chambers drove in two runs on a triple later in the inning.
Harvard (29-17) got on the board in the bottom of the second, putting three unearned runs across the plate to cut the MU lead to four. Mizzou responded scoring two runs in each of the next two innings, then added a run in the top of the seventh.
Senior Erik Dessau allowed four runs, just one of which was earned, on seven hits in five innings of work to record the win, moving to 5-1 on the season. He struck out three and did not give up a walk against Harvard.
Missouri will look to avoid elimination on Sunday at 4 p.m. PST (6 p.m. CST) as it faces the loser of the Cal State-Fullerton vs. Arizona game, which followed MU's game on Saturday.
