Missouri lost to Baylor 5-3 on Friday, giving the Bears the series win with a game to spare. Three runs for the Bears in the sixth helped them to their 11th straight Big 12 win.

Missouri’s starting pitcher Blake Holovach finished with a ERA of 2.86 over five and two-third innings and was replaced by Dusty Ross with Missouri trailing 5-1. The Tigers had plenty of chances to level things in the final four innings with seven players getting on base, but multiple times Missouri failed to push home its advantage.

Tigers coach Tim Jamieson saw it as a missed opportunity. “We had so many opportunities to score runs,” Jamieson said. “You don’t get it done one time it gives momentum to the other team. You don’t get it done multiple times, the guys at the plate start to doubt.”

The series concludes at Taylor Stadium Saturday at 11 a.m.
