Mizzou Tigers pennant A good night on another diamond, too

In last night's action, Auburn lost to Vanderbilt twice in a doubleheader, and Georgia beat Tennessee. So in the Race to Not Finish Worse Than 12th, Mizzou's temporarily in good shape:

10, Georgia (11-17, 27-27)
11. Missouri (9-19, 26-27)
12. Auburn (8-21, 23-32)
13T. Tennessee (7-21, 26-27)
13T. Arkansas (7-21, 26-27)

Mizzou's magic number is now 1(ish) -- with another win against Kentucky (either today at 11 am CT or tomorrow at noon) or one more loss by both Tennessee and Arkansas, the Tigers are going to Hoover for the SEC Tournament.
