OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLA - Eighth-seeded Missouri upset first-seeded Texas, 6-4, in the second game of the Phillips 66 Big 12 Baseball Championship at RedHawks Field.
Missouri and Texas each notched three runs in the first five innings, including a solo shot from this year's Big 12 Freshman of the Year, Erich Weiss (Texas), in the fourth inning to tie things up at two runs apiece. A sixth-inning, bases-clearing double by Missouri's Jonah Schmidt gave the Tigers a 6-3 lead, one that MU would not relinquish.
Tiger right-hander Eric Anderson kept Missouri in the game by tossing a career-high 95 pitches over seven innings. Schmidt went 2-for-5 with four RBI to lead the Tigers' offense.
