AUSTIN, Texas – The Missouri baseball team lost 5-4 to Texas on Friday at Disch-Falk Field in Austin, Texas.

The Tigers started well against No. 8 Texas starter Taylor Jungmann (6-0) breaking a 25-inning scoreless streak by the Longhorns ace with a run in the first inning.

Tigers sophomore Blake Brown led off with single up the middle, and, after an error and a hit batsman, scored on a ground out by senior Jonah Schmidt.

Brown came through for Missouri again in the second with a triple to right field that scored senior shortstop Jesse Santo, who had walked.

Schmidt hit a two-run home run over the right center-field fence in the top of the fifth to bring the Tigers' lead to 4-0. It was the third home run of the season for Schmidt, who is the only player to hit a home run off of Jungmann this season.

Missouri's momentum ended in the bottom of the fifth when Tigers starter Rob Zastryzny gave up four earned runs. Tigers junior reliever Jeff Emons (1-1) gave up the winning run in the sixth.

Missouri loaded the bases in the ninth with one out, but a strikeout by Conner Mach and a fly out by Opel ended the threat.

Missouri (13-13, 1-2 in the Big 12) is set to play the second game of the three-game series at Texas (19-7, 5-2) at 2 p.m. Saturday.
