The Missouri baseball team was unable to overcome an early eight-run deficit, falling to Oklahoma State 10-7 Saturday.

After MU freshman starting pitcher Eric Anderson and junior reliever Jeff Scardino were hit for 10 runs through a combined 4 2-3 innings of work, junior left handed reliever Zack Hardoin shut out Cowboys for the remainder of the game, allowing no runs on four hits.

“[Hardoin] did great, five zeroes,” coach Tim Jamieson said. “That gave us a chance to get back in the game. We had chances. That ball that [freshman right fielder] Dane [Opel] hit in the ninth got a catcher making that play over at third base. [He] made a great play. That ball gets by him, who knows what happens next?” Continue reading

The Missouri men’s golf team took third place with a final score of 291 at the Columbia Orthothopaedic Group Mizzou Intercollegiate on Tuesday, its final tournament of the regular season.

The Tigers entered the final round at The Club at Old Hawthorne at even par, five shots behind Kansas State. But they were unable to close the gap, finishing the round at 3-over par, 10 strokes behind first place Nebraska.

William Harrold, the only upperclassman on the team, pulled to within one shot of the overall leader late in the round. A bogie on 15 and three straight pars to close out the round put Harrold at 2-under for the tournament, three shots behind the leader.

“I played well,” Harrold said. “It was frustrating, (I) could have gotten a lot better than that on the back nine. I missed a couple little putts, but overall I shot well. I was pleased.”

After running his score up to 4-over par through six holes, sophomore Chris Johnson, who entered the day at even par, scored an eagle followed by two birdies on holes 8-10 to finish the round at even par.
