The Missouri baseball team lost a second consecutive game to Mississippi State, 6-2, on Saturday.  The Bulldogs also won Friday’s opening game of the three-game series. Tiger right-hander John Miles was the losing pitcher after he threw six and one-third innings, allowing four runs on five hits.

Freshmen Ryan Howard and Jake Ring led Missouri at the plate. Howard was 2-for-3 and scored two runs, while Ring finished 2-for-4 with a single and a double.

Howard’s second run in the fifth inning tied the game at two. Mississippi State then added three runs in the seventh inning and one run in the ninth to seal the victory.

Missouri is now 17-20 overall and 6-11 in the Southeastern Conference. The series finale is at 1 p.m. on Sunday.
