Missouri baseball traveled to Conway, Arkansas to take on the Central Arkansas Bears on Saturday. Missouri came into this game with a record of 5-4. They were looking to win their fourth straight game while the Bears, who came into the game 4-6, were attempting to start a winning streak of their own. The Tigers came away with the 4-0 victory.

In the first inning Chad McDaniel singled into left to drive in Clayton Peterson in what would be the only run Mizzou would need. The highlight of the Tigers 4-0 victory was McDaniel, who hit 2 for 4 with 2 RBI’s. He not only had the game winning RBI’s, but continued the Tigers momentum with an RBI double in the eighth inning. This big win for Missouri brought the Tigers to a solid record of 6-4 to start the season. The Tigers have outscored their opponents 36-9 in their last four games. If they keep this up they will be looking good heading into SEC play.

The winning pitcher for Missouri was TJ Sikkema, who got his first win in his first start. Cameron Dulle picked up his first save of the season. As well as their pitching depth with starter Junior TJ Sikkema, this Tiger team shows enough promise to be a possible NCAA tournament team if the NCAA reverses their ban or the appeal isn’t heard by the time the postseason starts. The Tigers will take on the Jackrabbits of South Dakota State Sunday at 1 P.M. in Conway Arkansas. MU will look to continue their winning ways and extend their winning streak to five games.
