Missouri baseball's offense struggles in loss to Kansas

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.
