Missouri wins final non-conference game 6-5 in extra innings

By Caroline Hecker

An early array of errors didn’t stop the Tigers from clawing back to an exciting 6-5 win in 11 innings over in-state rival Southeast Missouri State on Tuesday, April 29, 2014 at Taylor Stadium in Columbia, Mo.

Starting pitcher Alec Rash struggled through the first two innings, giving up four hits and two runs to the Redhawks. The first run of the game for the Tigers came in the bottom of the fourth inning as a solo homerun off of outfielder Dillon Everett’s bat.

Missouri fought its way back into the game and in the bottom of the 11th inning. DH Eric Anderson scored on a triple that was followed by a bad throw to win 6-5. The 6-5 win moves the Tigers to 20-24 overall as the team enters a home weekend series against Vanderbilt this weekend May 2, 2014 through May 4, 2014.
