The Missouri baseball team suffered its third straight loss in a 6-3 defeat Friday at Kansas, dropping the Tigers to 27-26 overall and 9-14 in the Big 12 Conference.
The Jayhawks built a 5-0 lead through five innings before Missouri scored its first run in the top of the sixth when Eric Garcia tripled down the right field line then scored on Dillon Everett's ground out.
The Tigers scored another run in the seventh on back-to-back triples from Blake Brown and Conner Mach then scored in the ninth on an RBI single from Scott Sommerfeld. Kansas scored its final run in the bottom of the seventh aided by a hit batter and an error.
Freshman right-hander John Miles (4-2), a Rock Bridge graduate, suffered the loss in his first Big 12 start after giving up four runs in two innings.
Missouri will try to avoid a sweep in the three-game series in a game set for 1 p.m. at Hogland Ballpark.
