Mizzou Tigers pennant What's On

"The Tricky Trio" huh? I'm into it. Then again, I'm almost always in favor of nicknames that involve puns and/or alliteration.

Mizzou Baseball defeats SLU in Kauffman Stadium -

Mizzou Baseball (15-12, 0-6 SEC) defeated Saint Louis 5-3, on a windy Tuesday evening at Kauffman Stadium. The Tigers scored three runs in the bottom of the fifth, capitalizing on a RBI from freshman Brian Sharp [Liberty, Mo.] and an RBI double from Shane Benes (Town & Country, Mo.). The defense played a crucial role in Mizzou's victory, turning a season-high five double plays, the most in a game since April, 26, 2014 against Florida.

The Tigers, who entered the game on a six-game skid and having lost nine of their last 10 games, used the Royals’ dugout and tapped into the reigning World Series champion’s penchant for rallying during a 5-3 comeback victory.

"I’m not a big Royals fan, but we do have a lot of KC guys on our team that definitely do love the Royals," said Mizzou sophomore third baseman Shane Benes, a St. Louis native and the son of former Cardinals pitcher Andy Benes. "We did use a little of their magic today."

For all you salty Cardinals fans reading this, just remember: you have to earn the right to host the Baseball Tigers. The Royals won it fair and square. You want Mizzou back at Busch? You better earn it.
