It was quite a homecoming for Mizzou sophomore Aaron Senne on Tuesday as No. 2 Missouri put up a season-high 17 runs, defeating Minnesota 17-8 at the Metrodome in Minneapolis. Senne, a native of Rochester, Minn., tied a school record with eight RBI, hit two home runs and had a career-high four hits in his return to his home state.
The victory was the 14th-straight for Missouri, its longest winning streak since winning 14-consecutive games last March. At 19-2 on the year, the Tigers continue their best ever start to the season.
With a large contingent of family and friends in attendance, Senne was 4-for-4 with eight runs driven in and two runs scored. He took over the team lead with six home runs on the season and increased his team-leading RBI total to 32.
Senne’s eight RBI matches Marcus Adler’s eight RBI game against Evansville in 1986. Senne has driven in at least five runs in a game three times this season. Tuesday was his second two-home run game this season, as he also hit two against Indiana State on March 9.
The Tigers and Gophers will play again at 1:30 p.m. on Wednesday.
