Pitchers struggle in Missouri baseball's blowout loss to Charlotte

Sunday, February 27, 2011 | 6:51 p.m. CST

After three innings, the Missouri baseball team had already allowed 10 runs. In the final two innings, the Tigers allowed another 11. It was not a good day for Missouri pitchers.

The Tigers ended up going through eight pitchers and allowing 21 hits in a 22-7 loss to Charlotte on the road. The Tigers (2-5) dropped three of four to the 49ers during the weekend.

Missouri pitcher Zack Hardoin (0-2) endured damage first, allowing three hits and four runs in the first inning. Hardoin got only one out before being pulled.

Kelly Fick, Eric Anderson and Myles Smith each allowed four runs in an inning or less of relief.

The Tigers got a solo home run from Dane Opel in the second inning and a two-run home run in the third inning from Scott Sommerfield.

Missouri will play its next 19 games at home, starting with a four-game series March 4-6 against Illinois-Chicago.
