Rough eighth turns a lead into a 7-3 loss for Missouri baseball
Missouri couldn’t capitalize on a strong start by Jacob Cantleberry (5 2⁄3 innings, 8 Ks, 2 runs), as the Tigers blew a one-run lead in the bottom of the eighth to fall to No. 11 Texas A&M.
The Tigers out-hit the Aggies 11-8, but Missouri left eight runners on base.
Here’s the full box score from the series opener:
Two Missouri men’s swimmers earn first-team All-America honors
While the Missouri men’s swimming and diving team dropped one spot to ninth after the third day of competition at the NCAA Championships, Jordan O’Brien and Mikel Schreuders became first-team All-Americans.
Both swimmers finished eighth in their respective events (100 free for O’Brien, 200 free for Schreuders) to become first-team All-Americans.
The NCAA Championships wrap up on Saturday in Austin.
- Redshirt sophomore Sophie Rivera set a new Missouri javelin record on Friday at the Texas Relays — and did so in dominant fashion. Her throw of 53.45 meters broke the old record (set in 2014) by over two meters. That’s nearly eight feet.
- Jack Parodi wrapped up his Top Five Missouri athletes since ‘05 with Max Scherzer on Friday. Make sure you check out all five articles (via ColumbiaMissourian.com).
- Auburn’s run through the tournament so far — against two teams that Missouri fans could probably do without! — has been unbelievably impressive. But, dammit, it sucks to see what happened to Chuma Okeke after such a great performance (20 points, 11 rebounds). Here’s hoping that Okeke is back healthy soon — and that Auburn continues its run though the tournament.
- I’m no scout, and I’ve seen others make this comparison — but I just don’t see nor understand the Drew Lock-Jay Cutler comparisons. Not even saying that Lock is better than Cutler; I just don’t think they’re very similar. What am I missing here?
