One at bat. One hit. The next 25 at bats didn't turn out quite as well for the Missouri baseball team, who lost to the Jayhawks 7-1.
After sophomore Blake Brown started Wednesday's game against Kansas at Kansas City's Kauffman Stadium with a single, the Tigers (13-16) couldn't get another hit.
After Brown singled, he stole second. He advanced to third on a sacrifice bunt. The next two batters struck out to end the inning. This trend continued as Kansas' Thomas Taylor threw six innings and struck out nine batters, including five-straight at one point. In all, Missouri batters struck out 13 times.
Missouri freshman Myles Smith made his first start of the season and allowed four runs in 1 1/3 innings pitched. He struck out two, walked two and allowed two hits. The Jayhawks (13-16) scored all seven of their runs in the first three innings.
