COLUMBIA — The MU baseball team held Oklahoma and its Big 12 leading offense to one earned run in a doubleheader Friday. 

The Tigers (12-12) split games with the No. 7 Sooners (18-6), losing the first 3-1 and winning the second 2-1. Designated hitter Jonah Schmidt scored in the 11th inning of the second game on a walk-off single by second baseman Eric Garcia. 

MU's Rob Zastryzny threw eight innings in the first game and struck out a career-high eight batters. Jeff Emens threw a scoreless ninth inning. 

Matt Stites pitched six and two-thirds innings to start the second game, allowing one earned run and striking out five batters. Phil McCormick relieved Stites, pitching four and one-third innings allowing one hit.

MU and Oklahoma will play one more game to complete the series. The teams are scheduled to play at 2 p.m. on Saturday, weather permitting, or at 1 p.m. on Sunday. Check for complete schedule updates.
