On Thursday, Mizzou baseball traveled to the Frisco College Baseball Classic, in Frisco, Texas to play against Oklahoma and other baseball teams. Saturday the Tigers were set to play the Sooners in a late 7 p.m. game. After they played two previous games Thursday and Friday and lost to DBU in both games.

The Tigers started off a dominating first three innings, scoring six runs. The Tigers had a three-spot in the first inning with lead-off hits from seniors Mark Vierling and Brandt Belk. Jacob Kush started on the hill for the Tigers, throwing 2.1 innings of the scoreless ball without any runs.

Oklahoma responded to Mizzou’s early lead by returning the run play by having four runs to Mizzou’s two in the third inning. The Sooners continued their offensive play by getting a six-run sixth inning to make the score 6-6. Oklahoma then gained control on Mizzou, who gave them five scoreless innings, from their pitcher Carson Carter. 

Towards the eighth inning, the Tigers were getting defenseless and could not reach past their six runs. The Sooners scored three times in the eighth extending their score to 16-6 which ended the game.

Senior Belk and Vierling each had two-hit games in the match against Oklahoma. This performance made it their first and fourth multi-hit game this season. Mizzou will look back to hopefully ending the Frisco College Baseball Classic with a win in their final game in Frisco. The Tigers take on Arizona Wildcats at noon on Sunday. The game will be available to stream on FloBaseball.
