The Missouri baseball team (9-12) beat Nebraska-Omaha 11-4 Wednesday at Taylor Stadium. The Tigers had 16 hits, which included seven doubles.

COLUMBIA – Dillon Everett and Keaton Steele each had three RBIs to lead the Missouri baseball team past Nebraska-Omaha 11-4 on Wednesday at Taylor Stadium.

Missouri pitcher Griffin Goodrich (2-0) gave up just one walk and no hits in three innings to earn the win. He could have probably gotten away with a less sharp start given the Tigers’ newfound prowess at the plate. Missouri scored 14 runs against Tennessee this past Saturday and followed up with 16 hits, including seven doubles, Wednesday.

Actually, the Tigers only led 3-0 when Steele came to bat in the bottom of the sixth inning. He singled on a 1-1 count, moved to second on a groundout and then advanced to third on a wild throw. Everett’s ensuing single brought him home. Consecutive doubles from Dane Opel and Dylan Kelly scored two more runs, and Kelly made it 7-0 on Josh Lester’s groundout to second.

Missouri scored another run in the seventh inning before Nebraska-Omaha cut the Tigers' lead in half with four runs in the top of the eighth. The Tigers responded with three more runs for good measure in the bottom of the inning. Needless to say, they didn’t require an encore in the bottom of the ninth.

Centerfielder Logan Pearson led Missouri with three runs. The Tigers host LSU for a three-game series this weekend.
