5 years 6 months 3 weeks ago Saturday, March 30 2013 Mar 30, 2013 Saturday, March 30, 2013 10:07:14 AM CDT March 30, 2013 in Tiger Talk

COLUMBIA -- Rob Zastryzny threw 7.2 strong innings, allowing just one earned run in Mizzou's (9-13, 2-5) 2-0 loss to the No. 4 LSU Tigers (24-2, 6-1) Friday night at Taylor Stadium. Zastryzny fanned seven batters in his third SEC start of the season, falling to 0-3 in conference despite not allowing more than three earned runs in any start against SEC competition. Zastryzny has been much better than his 1-5 record as the Tigers have been shutout in three of his six starts.  

Mizzou mustered six hits in the contest, matching LSU's total, but failed to register an extra-base hit and only had two total runners in scoring position throughout the game. Case Munson and Dylan Kelly each had two hits in the series opener, and Dane Opel extended his on-base streak to 15 games with a first-inning single, the longest such streak of his career and the longest by a Tiger this season.

Both teams went scoreless through the first three frames, until LSU's Mason Katz sent a shot over the left field wall in the top of the fourth for a 1-0 lead. The bomb was his 11th of the season and came on a 2-2 count. Kelly led off the bottom of the inning with an infield single and reached third base with one out, but he was left stranded after a strikeout and a groundout ended the inning.

Zastryzny sat LSU down in order in the fifth, but Mizzou failed to get a runner aboard in the bottom of the inning. Alex Bregman got a hit in the top of the sixth for LSU, the visiting Tigers' first hit since the Katz home run, and Mizzou was once again retired in order in the bottom of the inning. Zastryzny struck out Katz on three pitches in the first baseman's first plate appearance since his bomb in the fourth, the first out of a hitless seventh inning.

Mizzou went 1-2-3 in the bottom of the seventh once again before LSU threatened with two on and two outs after a hit batsman and a Bregman single, and an error allowed a LSU runner to score for a 2-0 lead, forcing a Mizzou pitching change to Keaton Steele, who got the final out in one pitch. Munson singled to start off the bottom of the frame and Logan Pearson walked with one out, but they were left stranded.

Breckin Williams threw in the ninth, allowing a leadoff single but working around the runner. Mizzou got one hit in the bottom of the frame, a single up the middle from Kendall Keeton, but the Tigers were held off the board.

Mizzou and LSU square off again Saturday at 1 p.m. on a nationally-televised contest.
