Early risers saw a really, really weird Everton-United match this morning. Everton scored two goals in the time it took me to change a diaper, and the match ended in a 4-4 draw.
Today's talking points:
1. Team Stubble is still alive in the Big 12 race. Thanks to some heroics by Ashley Fleming -- the only senior position player tied the game with a two-run home run in the sixth -- and an eighth-inning RBI single by Kelsea Roth, Mizzou evened their series at No. 5 Oklahoma with a 4-2 win. The two teams have played 18 innings in two games, and they've got another seven (at least) scheduled for 2:30 p.m. CT on ESPN!
2. Team Jamieson comes through. Mizzou Baseball will go for the sweep of K-State today after a walk-off walk gave them a 4-3 win yesterday. Mizzou's offense has always been pretty damned patient under Jamieson, at least in recent years, and Brannon Champagne's third walk of the game plated the second of two bottom-of-the-ninth runs. The win moved Mizzou to 20-17 overall, 5-9 in the Big 12.
