Another extra-inning win for MU baseball team

Wednesday, March 30, 2011 | 11:03 p.m. CDT

Conner Mach's single in the top of the 11th inning was the winning hit in the Missouri baseball team's 3-2 victory over Texas State on Wednesday night in San Marcos, Texas. It was the Tigers' second straight extra-inning victory.

Senior left-handed pitcher Kelly Fick allowed two hits in the final two innings to earn the victory. Fick, who pitched out of a bases-loaded jam in the 11th, was one of eight pitchers used by the Tigers.

Mach led the Tigers' offense, going 3-4 at the plate with a pair of RBI and a walk. In the 11th, Missouri had two outs and a runner on second when Brannon Champagne struck out, but Bobcats catcher Andrew Stumph let the ball go through to the back stop, allowing Champagne to reach base on the passed ball. That also allowed Jesse Santo to advance to third, setting the stage for Mach, who singled to left to send in the winning run.

Missouri also won in 11 innings in a 2-1 victory over Oklahoma on March 25 at Taylor Stadium. The Tigers (13-12) play next in the opening game of a three-game series against No. 8 Texas set to start at 6 p.m. Friday in Austin, Texas.
