The Missouri baseball team lost 5-4 on Sunday at Oklahoma, giving the Sooners a sweep of the Tigers in this weekend's three-game series in Norman, Okla.

Missouri scored two runs in the third inning on a double to right-center field by Tigers catcher Ben Turner. By the ninth, Missouri was trailing 5-2 after Oklahoma scored three runs in the third and single runs in the fourth and seventh. Missouri starter Brett Graves left in the third and fell to 2-5 with the loss.

In the ninth inning, Missouri first baseman Michael McGraw hit a two-RBI double for his second hit of the game, but he was stranded when designated hitter Scott Sommerfeld grounded out to third for the final out of the game.

The Tigers loaded the bases in both the sixth and seventh innings but failed to score in either frame.

Missouri fell to 3-9 in Big 12 Conference play and 18-17 overall. The Tigers play next against Kansas State in a game scheduled for 6 p.m. Friday at Taylor Stadium.
