COLUMBIA, Mo.  – Missouri plated four runs in the first on its way to an 8-3 win over the University of South Carolina baseball team Saturday afternoon (May 4) at Taylor Stadium.

The Tigers had seven runs in the first four innings of play. Carolina closed the cap to 7-2 with a Cole Messina RBI triple and a Gavin Casas RBI single. Blake Jackson homered in the seventh, his fourth of the year, but Missouri scored another run in the sixth for the final outcome.

Eli Jones took the loss, allowing seven hits and five runs with two strikeouts and three walks in 2.2 innings pitched. Tyler Pitzer had five strikeouts in 2.1 innings of relief.
