LUBBOCK, TX -- The Mizzou baseball team fell in the series finale at Texas Tech, 7-0, on Sunday afternoon at Rip Griffin Park. The loss for the Tigers moves them to 23-19 on the season and 7-11 in Big 12 play and it marks their fourth straight series loss at Texas Tech as they have not won in Lubbock since 2004. Freshman starter Brett Graves was saddled with his fifth loss of the season as he allowed five earned runs over 4.1 innings pitched.

Mizzou struggled offensively for the second straight day is at pounded out just four hits in the loss. The top four spots in the Tiger order on Sunday were a combined 0-for-15 in the loss. Blake Brown, Scott Sommerfeld, Andreas Plackis and Dillon Everett were the only players to record hits for the Tigers in the game.

After Mizzou was sent back to the dugout in order in the top of the first, Graves took to the hill in the bottom of the frame and looked sharp, throwing first-pitch strikes to all three batters in the inning as he sat down the side in order, thanks in large part to a great play Conner Mach at third for the second out. Tech's Jordan Lopez laced a full count pitch down the line as it appeared to be headed for an extra-base hit, but Mach dove to his right to snag the ball and recovered in time to throw him out at first.

In the second inning, Mizzou was once again retired in order and Graves went back to the mound for his half of the inning. After retiring the first batter on a groundout, Graves plunked Kevin Whitehead and then gave up a single to Reid Redman to put runners on the corners with one out. Tim Proudfoot then hit a sacrifice fly to right field, putting Tech on top, 1-0. But Graves got out of the inning with minimal damage as the game moved to the third inning.

Mizzou finally got to Tech starter Rusty Shellhorn in the third as Dillon Everett tallied the Tigers' first hit on an eight-pitch at-bat with two outs. Mach then drew a four-pitch walk, but Brannon Champagne bounced out to second to end the inning. Graves came back on in the bottom of the third and issued a leadoff walk to Barrett Barnes to open the frame but pitched out of a jam, stranding runners on second and third with a big strikeout to end the inning.

The Tiger bats again were quiet in their half of the fourth and Tech plated two more runs due in large part to an RBI triple by Brennan Moore as it took a 3-0 lead into the fifth inning. After the Tigers were once again sat down in order in the top of the fifth, Texas Tech added four more runs - all with two outs - as it took a huge 7-0 lead into the final four frames.

Shellhorn continued to deal as he went through the seventh inning without giving up a run while allowing just two hits. He was relieved in the eighth by Trey Masek. Andreas Plackis was the first Tiger batter to face Masek and he tallied the third hit of the day on a single through the right side. Scott Sommerfeld then hit a frozen rope back into centerfield as the first two men reached base in the inning. But Masek retired the next three batters to end the threat and the Tigers went in order in the ninth.

Mizzou will be back in action on Tuesday as it begins a two-game series at Arkansas.
