Missouri extended its winning streak to 11 games and secured a victory in its first Big 12 series of the season, defeating Kansas State 6-5 on Saturday. Derek Chambers went 2-for-5 with two RBIs to stretch his hitting streak to eight games and sparked an eighth inning rally to help Missouri overcome the Wildcats and four unearned runs scored off starter Nathan Culp, who got a no decision. Andrew Johnston (2-0) pitched two scoreless innings for the win.
On Friday, Max Scherzer (5-1) pitched seven innings of three-hit ball to win his fifth straight start. Hunter Mense had the Tigers' lone RBI and scored a run as Missouri (19-4) scored a season-low three runs on three hits, but managed to win its Big 12 opener.
