MU swept by Texas A&M

COLLEGE STATION, Texas — The Missouri Tigers managed just seven runs in three games and dropped all of them to Texas A&M over the weekend.

On Friday, the Tigers dropped a 2-1 decision to the Aggies.

Rob Zastryzny kept Missouri in the game with his pitching, but the Tigers’ offense didn’t do its part in the 2-1.

Zastryzny (2-9) threw a complete game, allowing two runs on seven hits while striking out seven.

But three straight hits in the fourth inning turned into two runs for Texas A&M, and that was enough to win.

The Tigers got their only run in the first when Logan Pearson scored on a wild pitch.

Missouri had just hits as Daniel Mengden struck out 10 in eight innings for the Aggies.

On Saturday, Texas A&M scored three runs in the bottom of the ninth to rally for a 6-5 victory.

None of the Aggies’ runs in the victory were earned, as the Tigers committed five errors.

Keaton Steele (4-3) took the loss in relief of Brett Graves. Graves worked the first 62⁄3 innings, giving up three runs on seven hits while striking out four. Steele then allowed three runs on two hits while striking out two in two innings.

Josh Lester had a three-run home run for the Tigers, while Shane Segovia had two hits and two RBI. Steele and Case Munson chipped in with a pair of hits each.

In Sunday’s series finale, the Aggies captured a 4-1 victory.

Eric Anderson (0-2), the first of five pitchers for Missouri, took the loss. He gave up two earned runs on six hits and two walks in 42⁄3 innings.

Dylan Kelly had one hit and one RBI for the Tigers and Dane Opel had a pair of hits.

Texas A&M improved to 26-22 overall and 10-13 in the Southeastern Conference, while Missouri dropped to 15-28 and 7-17.

The Tigers return to action with a series Friday through Sunday at Alabama.
