Missouri drops back to .500 with loss to Mississippi

Saturday, March 22, 2014 | 5:36 p.m. CDT

The Missouri baseball team fell behind early again and couldn't get any significant offense going as the Tigers lost 7-1 at No. 20 Mississippi on Saturday. 

With normal weekend starter John Miles forced to fill in on Friday for the injured Brett Graves, Missouri used mainly relievers to get through Saturday's game. Peter Fairbanks started for the Tigers and gave up a three-run home run in the first inning to put the team in an early hole. 

One more run was charged to Fairbanks before he exited in the third inning, and two more were charged to Andrew Hohn before that inning ended with the Rebels leading 6-1. 

Andrew Schwaab, Austin Tribby, Ryan Phillips and Alec Rash combined to hold Mississippi to just one run for the remainder of the game. 

The loss drops Missouri's record to 11-11 overall and 1-4 against Southeastern Conference competition. The Tigers play the Rebels at 1:30 on Sunday in the final game of the series.
