COLUMBIA — Missouri baseball and softball started out strong in the beginning of the week with wins. But as the weekend progressed, the teams fell: baseball starting on Friday and softball on Saturday. Both teams lost the rest of the weekend.

Missouri women’s tennis finished its regular season with two loses against Ole Miss.

Missouri softball wins one, loses two to Arkansas

At home in Columbia, Tigers’ softball won 9-0 against Arkansas on Friday.

Then on Saturday, 1,680 people showed for a low-scoring game. Despite keeping Arkansas at bay for the majority of the game, Missouri eventually lost 4-1.

*On Sunday, the Tigers scored five runs during the seventh tying the game at 10-10 before the Razorbacks took the lead winning 11-10.

Missouri baseball falls to Vanderbilt

Before the week's games started, Missouri baseball outfielder Sal Belfonte left the baseball team. Belfonte, a junior, played in nine games before he left.

At the beginning of the week, Missouri won its third game against Missouri State in a row with a 5-4 win. Keaton Steele, who was recently named Southeastern Conference Player of the Week, brought home sophomore outfielder Case Munson in the first inning.

But it went downhill from there for the team when Vanderbilt swept the three-game series this weekend in Nashville, Tenn.

Despite being in the lead during the first inning, Missouri lost 11-5 on Friday to No. 3 Vanderbilt. Missouri fell again on Saturday with a 12-1 loss. Munson scored Missouri's only point with the first home run of his career.

On Sunday, the Tigers lost 16-4.

Ole Miss trounces Missouri tennis

Ole Miss defeated the Tigers 4-1 on Friday in Oxford, Miss. Freshman Madison Rhyner scored the only point against The Rebels. The Tigers lost again on Sunday, this time with 4-2. Sophomore Elisha Gabb and senior Maria Christensen scored the two points. The Tigers’ record stands at 2-11 in the SEC.

The SEC Tournament will begin Wednesday in Mississippi again.
