ATHENS, Georgia - The Missouri baseball team defeated Georgia twice, 5-1 and 8-4, to start SEC play on Saturday. With the pair of wins, Missouri has now won four straight games and improves to 14-4 overall and 2-0 in conference play. 

Both pitchers for Missouri had strong outings. Reggie McClain pitched nine innings allowing one run on six hits in Game 1. Then, Tanner Houck pitched 7.1 innings and allowed just three runs in Game 2 of the doubleheader.

Despite McClain pitching well, Georgia jumped out in front in the second inning with a two-out double scoring a run.

With the score 1-0, Jake Ring hit an RBI double to tie the game at one in the third inning.

On the mound, Reggie McClain rebounded after allowing a career-high five earned runs against Milwaukee. In the fifth inning, McClain got out of a jam as he forced a 5-4-3 double play to keep the game tied at one.

Later in the game, Georgia native Trey Harris hit a three-run home run putting the Tigers out in front 4-1.

Harris led the Tigers in game one with three of Missouri's nine hits in the game.

Case Munson added a sole home run for his secend home run of the season to help seal Missouri's victory.

In game two of the double-header, Georgia got out to an early lead again with an RBI single from Jared Walsh off Tanner Houck to give the Bulldogs a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. 

A three-run third inning helped put Missouri aghead 3-1, and Brett Bond added another run in the sixth inning with his third home run of the season.

Georgia's Skyler Weber and Stephen Wrenn both hit solo home runs in the sixth and eighth innning, respectively, to tie the game at 4. 

The Tigers offense came to life in the 10th, starting with bases loaded walk scoring Ryan Howard to take the lead over Georgia. Harris added to his four-RBI day with a RBI single, followed by Zach Lavy belting a two-run double to make it 8-4 Missouri. 

Breckin Williams shut the door on Georgia to take the win, allowing just one hit and striking out five of the nine batters he faced. 

Missouri will finish the three-game series against Georgia on Sunday at 12 p.m. CT.
