Missouri managed to rouse its dormant offense in the ninth inning, but the three runs the Tigers scored proved inadequate, and they lost 6-3 to Campbell on Wednesday.
Eric Anderson made his first start of the year for Missouri, and he threw two scoreless innings before exiting after allowing a leadoff hit in the third. Andrew Hohn relieved Anderson, and the Camels took a 2-0 lead after Hohn gave up hits to both batters he faced.
The Tigers used nine relievers. Breckin Williams' three-inning performance was the longest outing of any Missouri pitcher in the game. Campbell got two runs off Williams and two more off Cole Bartlett to expand its lead to six by the time the ninth inning came around.
Though Missouri managed to string together enough hits in the ninth to score three runs, Kendall Keeton struck out to end the Tigers' shot at a comeback and push their losing streak to four.
Missouri, now 3-5 on the year, has changed its weekend schedule due to the below-freezing temperatures likely to affect Columbia.
Instead of beginning their slate of home games with a series against Illinois-Chicago, as originally scheduled, the Tigers will travel to Little Rock, Ark., for three games. The games were moved because of weather.
On Saturday, the Tigers are scheduled to face IPFW at 10 a.m., and then Illinois-Chicago at 6 p.m. Missouri will finish up the weekend with a game against Arkansas-Little Rock at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
