Missouri swept by Texas A&M in College Station

Sunday, May 5, 2013 | 4:29 p.m. CDT

Missouri's season-long offensive struggles continued Sunday as the Tigers mustered just six hits in a 4-1 loss to Texas A&M in College Station.

The weekend sweep was the third this season at the hands of a Southeastern Conference foe and dropped the Tigers' record to 15-28 (7-17 SEC). 

The Tigers had no answer for Aggies' starter Rafael Pineda, who struck out three batters during 5 2/3 innings to earn the victory.

Aggies catcher Troy Stein had two hits, including a go-ahead RBI double down the left field line off of Missouri reliever Jake Walsh in the fifth. 

Texas A&M right fielder Daniel Mengden added a sacrifice fly in the sixth. Texas A&M scored its other two runs on a fielder's choice and an error by Tigers second baseman Kendal Keaton. 

Missouri starter Eric Anderson took the loss, giving up two earned runs during 4.2 innings in his second start since returning from Tommy John surgery. 

Dane Opel went 2-4 and was the only Tiger to record multiple hits. Missouri's run came on a Dylan Kelly RBI single that scored Logan Pearson. 

Missouri next travels to Tuscaloosa, Ala., for a three-game series with Alabama starting Friday.
