COLUMBIA – The Missouri baseball team won the second game of its three game series with Memphis, 9-1.

Missouri freshman and Rock Bridge alum John Miles highlighted Saturday afternoon's game at Taylor Stadium, tossing 86 pitches in seven innings. Miles improved his record to 4-1 and his team's to 27-23.

Behind Miles was plenty of support from the Missouri offense. Leading the way was soon-to-be doctor Andreas Plackis, who had two hits and three RBIs, extending his hitting streak to 12 games, and Scott Sommerfeld, who launched his second home run of the season in the seventh inning.

The rubber match of the series with Memphis is scheduled for tomorrow at 1 p.m. at University Field. The game will be Missouri's final home game of the regular season as well as a tribute to all mothers in attendance on Mother's Day.
