Nick Tepesch gave up a balk to score a runner in the ninth as Texas A&M scored two runs to beat Missouri 9-8 in College Station, Texas.

The Tigers led 8-2 after the sixth inning. Junior starting pitcher Aaron Crow gave up four runs and recorded no outs in the seventh. The bullpen could not hold the lead.

Right fielder Ryan Lollis and left fielder Aaron Senne led the Tigers with two RBI each. Senne also added a home run.

The Tigers (29-12, 9-7 Big 12) will face the Aggies (35-7, 16-3 Big 12) again on Saturday at 2 p.m.
