Missouri baseball's offensive struggles continue in loss to No. 6 Florida

Saturday, April 26, 2014 | 5:01 p.m. CDT

The Missouri baseball team managed only one hit in its 5-0 loss to No. 6 Florida on Saturday. The Tigers' fifth-straight loss in Southeastern Conference play also meant they dropped the series with the Gators.

Senior right-hander Eric Anderson got the start for Missouri. He was effective through 3 1/3 innings, allowing only two hits, but he left with elbow tightness after getting an out in the fourth inning. Anderson stayed in the game as a hitter and gave up one run on the mound.

The Gators expanded their lead to 5-0 by scoring two runs off reliever Keaton Steele and two more off Austin Tribby. 

Gators right-hander Aaron Rhodes shut the Tigers out over nine innings. The only hit Missouri managed was a double by Dillon Everett in the second inning. 

The Tigers will finish up the series tomorrow at noon and try to avoid their third sweep in SEC play. John Miles is scheduled to get the start for Missouri.
