The Missouri Tigers Baseball team (11-5) finished a five-game home stand with a 14-4 victory over the Arkansas State Red Wolves (11-7) on Wednesday. This win allowed the Tigers to complete a perfect 5-0 record for the home stand. It took the Tigers only seven innings to take down the Red Wolves as the game was called due to a mutual decision by each teams’ head coaches.

The Red Wolves started the game off strong, scoring all four of their runs in the first inning. But the Tigers very quickly matched and then exceeded the Red Wolves’ output. Missouri scored four runs in the bottom of the first, and then went on to score one run in the second inning, seven runs in the third inning, and two more in the fifth inning.

The Tigers were led by Pitcher Konnor Ash, who picked up the win by settling down nicely after his rocky first inning. He pitched 3.1 innings, stuck out six batters, and only gave up only three hits. On the offensive side, Kameron Misner was one of the Tigers with a hot bat as he went 2-for-3, scored two runs, hit a Home Run, and batted in four runs. Another Tiger that provided offense was Mark Vierling, who also went 2-for-3 on the day, scored one run, and batted in four others.

The Tigers will travel to Fayetteville, Arkansas on Friday, March 15th to take on an SEC opponent, the No. 10 Arkansas at Baum Stadium in the first of a three game series. This game will air on SEC Network+ and the first pitch on Friday is set to be at 6:30 p.m.
