Tigers take on SLU, Illinois in diamond sports

While softball will have to wait til this afternoon to get their revenge over a regional rival — tune in to B1G+ if you have it at 12pm and 2pm to check it out — Bieser Ball took on a regional rival of their own, Saint Louis University, and took a battering ram to the Billikens.

Hot off wins against San Francisco and Arizona State in a surprise west coast road trip over the weekend (read Kortay’s recap), the Tigers returned home and erupted for 18 runs and 17 hits, sending the Bills back to The Lou (Happy 314 Day, y’all) in just 7 innings. According to, Mizzou had 10 players record an RBI and 11 produce a base hit, including Nander De Sedas and Fox Leum, who were both 2-for-3. De Sedas has a triple and four RBI, while Leum had three RBIs.

The Tigers got started right away, dropping six runs on SLU in first inning, and then added eight more in the sixth, three of which came on a 3-run shot by Jackson Beaman, also the first hit of his career.

Up next, Missouri Baseball will open SEC play against the Vanderbilt Commodores in Nashville. The last time we saw the ‘Dores, they were facing off against Mississippi State in the CWS, in Nashville.

As for softball, which I honestly feel I spend all my non-work hours covering [no complaints really]], is in Champaign-Urbana for Braggin Rights, Softball Style. From my own preview, which you can read today:

Missouri and Illinois have met up a grand total of 14 times since 2009 in Braggin Rights games, and Mizzou holds the overall lead, 10-4, but have Illinois has taken four of the last nine. They last met up on the softball diamond on March 11, and the Tigers lost 2-1. was just full of fun facts on the matchup history, citing the March 25, 2015 game as the Tigers’ largest margin of victory when the they pummeled the Illini, 17-5. Mizzou’s scored 69 total runs against them in the past 13 years, and average roughly 4.93 runs a game.
