Mizzou Baseball drops series finale to Mississippi State, 3-1
STARKVILLE — The Mizzou Baseball team dropped its series finale by a score of 3-1 against the Mississippi State Bulldogs Saturday afternoon at Dudy Noble Field.
The Tigers were only able to muster up one run off of eight hits in the game. The only run for Mizzou came off of an error on a fielder's choice by Mississippi State's second baseman John Holland.
With the loss, the Tigers fall to 24-25 on the season. The Mississippi State Buldogs improve to 33-14-1 on the season.
The Tigers failed to capitalize on having runners in scoring position as they finished the game with seven runners left on base. This included a missed opportunity with the bases loaded and no outs in the sixth inning during which Mizzou could only get one run across the plate.
Mississippi State's Daniel Brown was credited with the win, moving him to 3-2 on the season. Reid Humphreys earned the save, which was his sixth of the year. Missouri's Michael Plassmeyer was credited with the loss, making him 4-5 on the season.
The Tigers will look to rebound after being swept, when they take on the Georgia Bulldogs in another three-game weekend series as they approach the end of the season.
The first pitch is set for 6 p.m. Friday at Taylor Stadium.
