The Missouri baseball team will attempt to avoid a series sweep after losing 10-4 to Oklahoma on Saturday in Norman.
It’s the third weekend in a row that the Tigers (17-13, 2-6 Big 12) will go into the final game of a series trailing 0-2. The Tigers have come back to win the final game on the other occasions, but losing the first two games is a a trend Missouri needs to stop.
The team has hit the ball well this series, but they are struggling to get runs. In both games, the Tigers had 11 hits, but scored only four runs. Meanwhile, the Sooners are leaving few runners on base and have almost as many runs as hits.
Aaron Senne extended his hitting streak to 15 games Saturday with his ninth home run in the first inning to give the Tigers a short-lived lead.
The Tigers play Oklahoma on at 12:30 p.m. Sunday in Norman. The game time was moved up to make traveling more convenient for Missouri.
