Tigers finally tame Gators
Mizzou pounds 14 hits and knocks of No. 19 Florida
Freshman infielder Josh Lester had a big day at the plate, going 4-for-4 with four singles in Mizzou’s (13-22, 5-13) 8-2 win over No. 19 Florida (22-18, 11-7) Sunday afternoon at Taylor Stadium.
Sophomore outfielder Logan Pearson got the offense going for the Tigers in the series finale, launching a home run to right on the first pitch of the game that the Tigers saw at the dish.
Jake Walsh was credited with his first win of the season, as he claimed a career-long outing of 3.2 innings, giving up just one run on a solo shot to left field.
John Miles (Rock Bridge HS) was credited with a save, his second of the year for his 2.1-inning performance, allowing just one run.
Pearson and Dylan Kelly both went 3-for-4 at the plate, each claiming two RBI in the game. Case Munson extended his on-base streak to 17 games with two hits in the contest, scoring twice.
The Tigers also played fantastic defense Sunday, making a couple highlight-reel catches, none better than a diving snag at first base by Keaton Steele.
