Saturday, April 9, 2011 | 7:50 p.m. CDT

COLUMBIA — The Missouri baseball team lost its sixth straight game on Saturday, falling to No. 23 Oklahoma State 4-1 in Stillwater, Okla. The Tigers fell to 13-18 and 1-6 in the Big 12 Conference.

Junior starting pitcher Matt Stites pitched seven innings, allowing eight hits, four runs and notching six strikeouts.

It was a 1-1 game until the bottom of the seventh inning when Stites allowed a leadoff double to junior Gabe Weidenaar. He was driven home by the next batter, and Stites allowed a run later in the inning by throwing a wild pitch.

Stites allowed a single to the first batter in the bottom of the eighth inning and was pulled for senior Phil McCormick. In his Big 12-leading 19th appearance, McCormick threw a wild pitch to allow the final run of the game.

Missouri's only run came from sophomore outfielder Blake Brown's home run in the top of the third inning.

Missouri will finish its three-game series against Oklahoma State at 1 p.m. Sunday in Stillwater, Okla.
