NORMAN, OK - The Mizzou baseball team built a 2-0 lead but couldn't hold on as it dropped its second straight game, 8-4, to Oklahoma on Saturday at L. Dale Mitchell Field.

Tiger starter Blake Holovach gave up seven earned runs over 5.2 innings and was saddled with his second straight loss. He is now 5-2 on the season and the Tigers are now 18-16 on the season and 3-8 in Big 12 play.

The Tigers were led on the day by Conner Mach, who went 2-for-4 with a run scored while Eric Garcia went 1-for-4 with a pair of runs driven in. Blake Brown also extended his Big 12-best hitting streak to 21 games while Brannon Champagne reached base for the 26th consecutive game, the second-best active streak in the conference.

Mizzou loaded the bases with two outs in the first inning after hits from Mach and Ben Turner sandwiched around a Dane Opel hit-by-pitch. Garcia sent a bloop single into left field that scored Mach and Opel. Oklahoma left fielder Erik Ross committed an error on the play letting the ball get past him, but he recovered and was still able to throw out Turner at the plate for the third out of the inning.

Holovach took to the mound in the bottom of the first inning and gave up three consecutive hits to open the game and then a pair of sacrifice flies tied the game at 2-2.

After the Tigers were retired in order in the second, Holovach continued to struggle in the bottom half of the inning, allowing four more hits and two more runs as OU took a 4-2 lead. But the Tigers jumped all over OU starter Jordan John in the third, started by a leadoff double off the bat of Brown. He came around to score on a bloop single by Champagne to cut the lead to 4-3. Champagne then came around to score on an error as the Tigers tied the game at 4-4.

Both pitchers began to settle in until Holovach ran into trouble in the bottom of the sixth. After putting together three straight shutout innings, Holovach walked Oklahoma's Max White and then served up a two run homer to Hunter Lockwood, his Big 12-leading ninth of the season. Holovach walked the next batter and was replaced by reliever John Miles, who served up another two-run shot to Evan Mistich to put OU on top, 8-4.

The score stayed that way until the final pitch as OU put together six shutout frames to close the game. The Tigers and Sooners will play the series finale tomorrow at 1 p.m. in Norman.
