ARLINGTON, Texas — Oklahoma State coach Frank Anderson might not have agreed with the explanation for some of the weird things that happened, but there was no arguing his description of the game.
“What a game! It was a good game for a lot of reasons,” Anderson said. “It was a strange game.”
The Mid-Missouri Mavericks couldn’t prevent the sweep.
The Mavericks couldn’t hold off the River City Rascals on Sunday at Taylor Stadium, losing 11-9.
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Corey Koskie drove in three runs and Alex Prieto hit his first major league home run for the Minnesota Twins in a 8-3 victory against the Kansas City Royals on Sunday.
Tim Redding allowed four hits in 71/3 shutout innings Sunday to lead the Houston Astros to a 7-1 win against the St. Louis Cardinals.
Mike Lamb, Jeff Bagwell and Lance Berkman hit two-run home runs for Houston, who had lost five straight to the Cardinals.
ARLINGTON, Texas — Cody Ehlers hit a tie-breaking two-run home run in the seventh inning, sending Missouri to its first Big 12 Conference Tournament championship game with a 10-7 victory against Baylor on Saturday at Ameriquest Field.
With the game tied at 7, Lee Laskowski led off the seventh with a double against Zane Carlson (0-4). Paul Woody was brought in to pitch to Ehlers, who hit his second home run of the tournament and 17th of the season.
JEFFERSON CITY — Hickman’s Tim Cornell picked the best time for his best performance.
Cornell won the 1,600 meters at the Class 4 state championships Saturday at Lincoln University. Cornell, a junior, passed seniors Kevin McNab of Howell North and Jared Kreissler of Truman on the last corner to win.
WAYNESVILLE — After a 10-year absence from the state semifinals, the Hickman girls’ soccer team is back in the spotlight and coach Sandy Paulsen couldn’t be happier.
The Kewpies defeated the Glendale Falcons 3-0 in the Class 2 quarterfinals Saturday at Tiger Pride Park.
Another rocky start sank the Mid-Missouri Mavericks again.
The quick hole was too much to overcome, and the Mavs lost 9-2 to the River City Rascals at Taylor Stadium on Saturday in a Frontier League game.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. –- Both teams were assured a medal. Their chances at a championship were gone. It was the fourth match they played in two days. By most accounts, it seemed those circumstances might make for a lackluster match.
Emotions were high, though, for Rock Bridge’s Matt Dresner and Justin Winner and Helias’ Scott and Matt Schlueter. It was the third time the doubles teams met this season, and they had split the first two matches.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. - Jon-Eric Meyer's match with Helias' Andy LeRoy in the quarterfinals of the state championship consolation bracket was, in essence, a five-part epic story, a near-marathon of tennis that resembled a heavyweight title fight.
It is the begining of a new series and the Mid-Missouri Mavericks are hoping to come out on top. But with a 12-4 loss in the series opener at Taylor Stadium last night against the River City Rascals, the Mavericks seem to have their work cut out for them.
The Mid-Missouri Mavericks’ offense is starting to heat up, but the pitching isn’t coming along.
Three Mavericks pitchers couldn’t slow down a potent Gateway Grizzlies attack Thursday night, and Mid-Missouri dropped the first game of the doubleheader 10-4 at Taylor Stadium.
SPRINGFIELD, Mo. –- About an hour into Rock Bridge’s state-championship match with Rockhurst, a fan asked Bruins coach Ben Loeb how his team was faring.
Loeb looked at the fan for a second, cracked a smile and turned away. It wasn’t going well for the Bruins.
The remnants of a storm pass overhead, and Kaela Rorvig, half-laughing, half-serious, remarks how slow she is in practice.
Rorvig, who runs for Hickman, is anything but slow. At the sectional meet Saturday in Camdenton, she qualified for the state championships in four events. She won the 400 meters, where she is the two-time defending state champion.
Imagine running 3,000 meters while clearing five barriers and one water jump all in less than 10 minutes.
Missouri sophomore Matt Noonan will do just that in the men’s steeplechase Friday and Saturday at the NCAA Mideast Regional track meet at Bernie Moore Stadium in Baton Rouge, La. Noonan will join 23 Tigers athletes competing in 28 events.
Hickman’s performance Tuesday makes it difficult to picture losing.
The Kewpies girls’ soccer team plays Glendale in the quarterfinals of the Class 2 state tournament at 1 p.m. Saturday at Tiger Sports Complex in Waynesville.
Unfortunately for the Mavericks, Derrick Peoples is only one person, because he was the Mavericks' only source of offense in the second game.
After opening the season with an onslaught of errors, the Mid-Missouri Mavericks took advantage of somebody else’s defensive lapse.
Frank Scott, Jr. scored from second on an infield single in the bottom of the ninth, giving the Mavericks their first win of the season, 4-3 against the Gateway Grizzlies on Wednesday in their home opener at Taylor Stadium.
Christian Cantwell dominated Saturday at the Home Depot Invitational, which didn’t surprise him. News that his hometown of Eldon is planning a “Christian Cantwell Appreciation Day” was a surprise.
“I just feel normal there,” Cantwell said in a teleconference call.
The opponents are familiar, but Rock Bridge doesn’t want a familiar result. This time, it wants a state championship.
The Rock Bridge boys’ tennis team plays Chaminade (11-6) today at 9 a.m. in the Class 2 state semifinals at Cooper Tennis Complex in Springfield, Mo. If the Bruins win the match, they will face the winner of the Rockhurst/Kirkwood match in the final at 1 p.m.
