NASHVILLE, Tenn. - No. 3 Vanderbilt jumped all over Mizzou Saturday, pounding out 19 hits and defeating the Tigers, 12-1.
The loss drops the Tigers to 12-19 on the season and 4-10 in SEC play.
Mizzou's Case Munson was pretty much the entire Tiger offense in this game. He had a pair of hits from the lead-off spot, including his first career homer, a solo shot in the fourth inning that went off of the scoreboard in left field.
Vanderbilt's Tyler Beede, one of the best pitchers in the nation, kept Mizzou in check all day as he earned his ninth win in nine starts, allowing just three hits and the one earned run in the fourth. It was just the seventh earned run allowed by Beede all season.
On the other hand, Mizzou righty Brett Graves was tagged with the loss, going 4.1 innings while allowing 12 hits, nine earned runs while striking out three as he falls to 0-5 on the season.
Seven of the 12 hits that he allowed, though, were of the infield variety.
