A sacrifice fly by first baseman Andreas Plackis in the top of the 11th inning proved to be the difference in the Missouri baseball team's 4-3 victory over Missouri State on Wednesday at Hammons Field in Springfield.
The Tigers scored three of their runs in the fifth inning off hits by third baseman Conner Mach and center fielder Brannon Champagne, as well as a sacrifice fly by catcher Ben Turner.
Senior Jeff Emens started the game for Missouri, with his only earned run coming off a home run by Bears right fielder Trey Massenberg in the third inning.
With Emens only pitching three innings, the Tigers had to go deep into their bullpen, using three other pitchers before freshman John Miles, a Rock Bridge High School graduate, picked up the win in extra innings.
Miles threw two innings of no-hit ball with two strikeouts to ensure the victory for the Tigers. The win extended Missouri's winning streak to four games.
The Tigers' (22-17) next game is against Texas Tech at 6:30 p.m. Friday in Lubbock, Texas.
