ATHENS, Ga. - The Missouri Tigers baseball team dropped its seventh straight game in a 3-0 road loss against the Georgia Bulldogs.

Mizzou starting pitcher Tanner Houck tossed eight innings in the loss for his first complete game of the season. He also struck out five batters en route his fourth quality start of the season, his second in conference play. 

Houck gave up two runs in the first three innings, which started on a first-inning RBI single from Michael Curry. Bulddogs' outfielder Tucker Maxwell hit the only home run of the night in the third inning, while Keegan McGovern tripled and scored an insurance run on a wild pitch in the eighth inning.

Georgia starter Andrew Gist tossed six shutout innings against the Tigers, striking out a career-high 10 hitters. Bulldogs relief pitchers Zac Kristofak and Blake Cairnes kept the shutout intact, allowing just two baserunners over the last three innings. 

Mizzou recorded only three hits on the night, stranding six runners in the effort. The Tigers only placed three runners scoring position.

The loss marks the first time that Mizzou has been shut out this season, giving the team losses in eight of its last nine games. The Tigers play the second game of the series tomorrow at Foley Field at 6 p.m. before the series finale at Atlanta's SunTrust Park on Saturday.
