Missouri's Rob Zastryzny pitches against Texas in the first inning of a Big 12 tournament game in Oklahoma City on Wednesday.

OKLAHOMA CITY -- Rob Zastryzny fell two outs short of a complete game but did enough to stifle the Texas bats in Missouri's Big 12 tournament first-round win Wednesday night.

The sophomore gave up five hits over 8 1/3 innings and walked none in a 5-0 Tigers victory. Missouri (29-26) has won three of four against the Longhorns (30-21) this season. The Tigers play Texas A&M at 7:30 p.m. Thursday.

"They hadn't seen my best stuff yet," Zastryzny said during a postgame press conference streamed live on "When I went into this game, I wanted to show them my best stuff."

Zastryzny recorded Missouri's only loss to Texas this season; a 6-4 setback on May 4.

Conner Mach drove in Blake Brown on a double in the third inning. In a four-run fourth inning, Eric Garcia stroked an RBI single and Brown drove in two runs on a double to the warning track in left-center field. Brown later scored on a wild pitch.
