The Missouri baseball team ended its two-game Joplin benefit series against Iowa on Sunday in a 3-3 tie.
Missouri trailed for the first time in its exhibition series at Taylor Stadium, giving up one run in the first and another in the third. Then the Hawkeyes added another run in the fifth inning on a sacrifice bunt to increase their lead to 3-0.
The Tigers came back, though, with one run in the bottom of the fifth and two more on a Brannon Champagne two-RBI single in the seventh to tie the game.
Missouri ended its exhibition season, which also included a game against a high school team from Ontario, 2-0-1.
