COLUMBIA -- Freshman John Miles, fresh off receiving the Big 12 Newcomer of the Week award for his pitching performance last week against Arkansas and Texas, played the best game of his Mizzou career on Saturday as Mizzou took game two of the weekend series with Memphis by a final score of 9-1. He needed only 86 pitches along the way, walking and striking out one batter and surrendering six hits in seven innings in his career-best outing.

Scott Sommerfeld had himself a great day as well, making his mark in the field with an outfield assist and a solo home run in the seventh inning. First baseman Andreas Plackis extended his hitting streak to 12 games with his two-RBI single in the fourth inning. With two innings of scoreless baseball, the Tiger bullpen notched another solid performance as they continue their strong showing this season.

Miles got off to a fast start, striking out the first batter he faced on three pitches en route to a scoreless first. Mizzou then went down 1-2-3 in the bottom of the first. Memphis got a leadoff home run in the second, taking a 1-0 lead. The visiting Tigers then had a runner on second base with one out after a sacrifice bunt, but Eric Garcia's heads up play in a grounder got the runner attempting to take third. With two on and two out, a Memphis player tried to score on a single to left but Sommerfeld threw a strike to Ben Turner, who easily tagged out the runner trying to score. Blake Brown walked with two outs in the bottom of the inning, giving Mizzou its first base runner of the contest, but Brown was quickly picked off at first base to end the inning. Memphis was held scoreless in the third, and Mizzou went down in order again in the bottom of the frame.

 

Miles sat Memphis down in order in the fourth, forcing three groundouts in the short inning. Garcia singled to lead off the bottom of the fourth, Mizzou's first hit of the contest. Dillon Everett then walked, putting two on with no outs for Turner, who bunted back to the pitcher on a sacrifice, but an errant throw allowed Garcia to score and put two runners in scoring position with the game tied at one. Plackis then singled to left, scoring Everett and Turner for a 3-1 lead into the third inning. Miles stayed strong through the fifth, facing only three batters despite a hit as the inning ended on a 5-4-3 double play. Dane Opel walked to lead off the fifth inning, and Sommerfeld's sacrifice bunt advanced him to second with an out. Brannon Champagne's hot shot down the third base line was stopped by a diving effort by the Memphis first baseman, but runners were safe on the corners as the ball rolled away. Garcia's sacrifice fly to center then scored Opel to give Mizzou a 4-1 advantage. Memphis went down 1-2-3 in the top of the sixth, and Turner led off the bottom of the inning with a double down the right field line, but the Tigers could not score in the frame.

Miles remained on the mound into the seventh, and Memphis led off with a single to center. A 5-4-3 double play then cleared the bases, and a groundout to second ended the inning. Sommerfeld then belted a solo shot to lead off the bottom of the inning, sending a 2-0 pitch over the fence in left field to give the Tigers a 5-1 lead. Everett singled to right with two outs, and Turner walked to put two on with two outs. Plackis then singled to right, scoring Everett to give the Tigers for a 6-1 lead. Conner Mach then walked to load the bases, and Brown's single scored two more runs for Mizzou, gaining an 8-1 lead. Sommerfeld walked in his second at-bat of the inning, scoring another run for Mizzou. Ryan Yuengel entered to pitch in the eighth, and mowed down the visiting Tigers 1-2-3. Jeff Emens registered his first career at bat with one on and one out in the bottom of the eighth, and he grounded into an inning-ending double play. Dusty Ross entered to pitch the game's final inning, and the scoreless frame sealed the final score of 9-1.

The final home game of the season will take place Saturday at 1 PM. Mothers will get into the game for free and the first 50 mothers will get free flowers. Also, prizes for mothers will be raffled off throughout the game.
