The Missouri baseball team was swept in its three-game series at Texas after losing 10-1 to the No. 8 Longhorns on Sunday in Austin, Texas.
Missouri managed just four hits against Texas senior right-hander Cole Green (2-2), who struck out seven and walked none in eight innings. The Tigers fell to 13-15 overall and 1-4 in Big 12 Conference play.
Missouri senior left-hander Zack Hardoin (2-4) suffered the loss after failing to get through the first inning.
After retiring the first two batters, Hardoin walked the next two then let up back-to-back RBI singles. After that, Texas' next batter, Jacob Felts, hit a three-run home run off the foul pole in left field to put the Longhorns ahead 5-0 and end Hardoin’s outing.
Ryan Ampleman scored for Missouri on an error in the seventh after coming in to pinch run for sophomore catcher Ben Turner, who had doubled to center field. Sophomore outfielder Dane Opel went 2-for-4 with a double and a triple for the Tigers.
Missouri plays next against Kansas in a game set for 5:30 p.m. at Kaufmann Stadium in Kansas City.
