The Missouri Tigers baseball team dropped its second game in a series against Georgia on Saturday, falling 6-5 despite a ninth-inning rally.
Starting pitcher Brett Graves, searching for his first win of the season, was hit hard by the Bulldogs. Georgia scored two runs in the first inning and tacked on three more before Graves was pulled in the fourth.
Josh Lester got the Tigers on the board with an RBI sacrifice fly in the fifth inning. Missouri scored three more runs in the sixth inning to cut Georgia's lead to one. The Bulldogs would respond, though, scoring in the seventh inning off a Lester throwing error.
Missouri managed to get multiple runners into scoring position in the ninth, with Keaton Steele scoring a runner after a deep sacrifice fly. Missouri wasn't able to do more damage, though, as Georgia pitcher Dylan Cole forced Logan Pearson into a pop-out.
The Tigers fell to 10-18 on the season and 3-9 in Southeastern Conference play. They next play Sunday in a rubber match at Georgia.
