Freshman Aaron Senne drove in a career-high six runs to lead Missouri to a 10-8 victory against Oklahoma on Sunday at Taylor Stadium.

Senne was 3-for-4 with six RBIs and two runs scored in the series finale with Oklahoma. He was just a single short of hitting for the cycle.

The win was the 35th of the season for Missouri, matching its win total from last year. It also made the Tigers 10-for-11 in series victories.

Sophomore Ian Berger allowed four runs on seven hits, striking out five and walking none in five innings on the mound. He took the victory to improve his record to 4-1 on the season.

After Oklahoma (29-22, 9-15) scored in the top of the second inning on a pair of doubles, Senne hit his third home run of the season in the bottom of the inning, driving in two runs.

Missouri (35-14, 16-8 Big 12) loaded the bases on a pair of singles and a walk in the fourth before Senne cleared the bases with a double down the right field line to give Missouri a 5-1 lead.

The Sooners came back with three runs on a home run by Joe Dunigan in the fifth, but Missouri scored four times in the seventh, with three extra base hits, including an RBI double from freshman Trevor Coleman and a triple by Senne to drive in his sixth run of the day.

Oklahoma’s three runs in the ninth fell short.Sophomore Scooter Hicks recorded the final two outs to pick up his third save of the year.

The Tigers finish the regular season with four away games starting with Illinois at 6:30 p.m. on Tuesday at GCS Stadium in Sauget, Ill. Next weekend, Missouri plays Oklahoma State in a three-game series in Stillwater, Okla.
