(From Missouri Sports Information)
Mizzou Baseball pushed its national-best winning streak to 20 games after defeating Little Rock, 11-8, Tuesday night at Taylor Stadium. Mizzou’s 20-game winning streak is the second-longest in school history and Mizzou is now in sole possession of the nation’s longest active winning streak after Louisville lost to Cincinnati Tuesday.
Mizzou exploded for six runs in the first, two in the second and three more in the fifth with its six-spot in the first being the most by Mizzou in the opening frame all season. Mizzou’s offense was the beneficiary of 11 walks in the game. Little Rock used nine pitchers and the first seven issued at least one walk. Starter Carter Brown walked the first three batters of the game to set up Mizzou’s six-run first. He took the loss, falling to 1-1. Mizzou’s Bryce Montes De Oca (Lawrence, Kan.) earned his second win of the season. Brian Sharp (Liberty, Mo.) earned his first save of the year.
