Freshman Aaron Crow
June 4, 2006
MALIBU, Calif.-- - Freshman Aaron Crow matched his teammate and classmate by recording his first career complete game as Mizzou defeated Pepperdine 4-1 on Sunday in Malibu. Not only was it Crow's first complete game, but it was his first collegiate victory, as he allowed just one run on six hits against the Waves.
Earlier on Sunday, the Tigers picked up a 2-1 win over UCLA behind freshman Rick Zagone, who pitched his first career complete game.
After Pepperdine took an early lead with a run in the top of the first inning on three hits, the Tigers scored the next four runs of the game. They tied the game with a run in the bottom of the second inning as junior Hunter Mense doubled and later in the inning scored on a base hit by sophomore Brock Bond.
Junior John McKee pushed the Tigers' lead to three as he connected for his third home run of the season, a two-run shot with two outs in the bottom of the sixth inning. McKee was 2-for-3 in the game with two RBI.
Frey and Bond each added a pair of hits in the win.
The Tigers have won three-straight games in Malibu after dropping the opener of the regional to Pepperdine on Friday.
Mizzou and Pepperdine will play for the Regional Championship on Monday at 1 p.m. pacific time (3 p.m. central) with the winner qualifying for the NCAA Super Regional round.
