The Missouri baseball team split a doubleheader Saturday at Tennessee, losing the first game 7-6 and winning the second 14-6 to move to 8-12 overall and 2-4 in Southeastern Conference play.
The Tigers entered the bottom of the ninth inning in the first game with a 6-5 lead, but the Volunteers scored the tying run on a squeeze play and then got a walk-off single to win it. Case Munson (2-for-2 with a run and two RBIs) and Michael McGraw (2-for-4 with two runs and an RBI) highlighted the Tigers' offense in Game 1.
Missouri's 14 runs in the second game were a season high. Catcher Dylan Kelly led the barrage, going 3-for-6 with five RBIs. He hit his first Division I home run with a 3-run shot in the second inning. Josh Lester (3-for-5) also hit a home run with his first career shot in the sixth.
In all, the Tigers tallied 24 hits on the day and plated 20 runs as the offense finally broke out.
Freshman right-hander Alec Rash got his second win of the season in Game 2, striking out five and giving up seven hits in five innings of work.
The Tigers will return home for a 2 p.m. game against Nebraska-Omaha on Tuesday at Taylor Stadium.
