Kyle Mach singled in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning, and Missouri capitalized on two Oklahoma State errors for a 7-4 win Sunday that completed a three-game sweep in Stillwater, Okla.
The Tigers finish the regular season at 39-14 overall and at 19-8 in the Big 12 Conference. The 19 wins are the most in league play for a Missouri team in the 11 years of the Big 12 Conference and are the most since winning 20 in 1996, the final year of the Big Eight Conference.
The Tigers finish second in the Big 12 and will be the No. 2 seed at the Big 12 tournament, which will get underway on Wednesday at Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City, Okla. Missouri will play seventh-seeded Oklahoma in the first round.
After Mach’s single made it 4-3, an error by Oklahoma State reliever Justin Friend on a pickoff attempt allowed John McKee to score from third. The Tigers added two more runs when left fielder Ty Wright misplayed a single by Brock Bond.
Ryan Pittman got the Cowboys (38-16, 16-11) within 7-4 with an RBI single off Missouri starter Ian Berger (5-1) in the sixth, but Stephan Holst, Ryan Cargano and Greg Folgis each pitched one scoreless inning of relief for the Tigers to close out the game. Folgis earned his second save.
