Two days before its first Big 12 game of the year Missouri was blown out by Indiana State 15-1 on Wednesday. The Tigers fell behind early to the Sycamores and never recovered. Brett Graves endured a bruising one and two-third innings, giving up six hits and five runs before Jeff Emens came in to stem the bleeding. The introduction of freshman John Miles at the top of the fourth saw more runs coming for the visitors and the inning closed with the score 10-0. Matters did not improve for the Tigers offensively with the team’s solitary run, from Jake Ivory, coming in the bottom of the ninth. A total of six errors in the field topped off a forgettable day for the Tigers.
Missouri begins its Big 12 season on Friday, facing Oklahoma State at 6 p.m.
