Dillon Everett lined a single down the right field line scoring the game winning run in the bottom of the tenth inning to give the Missouri Tigers (18-21) their first win ever inside Kansas City’s Kauffman Stadium. The Tigers beat Wichita State 5-4 Tuesday night.
The win also snapped a five-game, extra inning losing streak and it was the Tigers’ first walk-off win since March of 2012.
Everett finished with two RBIs for Mizzou who had nine hits on the night. Everett, Logan Pearson, and Dylan Kelly each had two hit nights. Pearson scored the winning run.
Alec Rash made his first start since April 30, 2013 against SEMO and went four innings, allowing three earned runs and striking out four.
Down 3-1 in the bottom of the sixth, Mizzou loaded the bases with no outs and Kelly singled to left to score a run to tie the game, after a wild pitch scored the first run of the inning. A sacrifice fly then put Mizzou on top 4-3 after six. Wichita State answered with a run in the eighth to tie the game.
The Tigers head to St. Louis on Wednesday (April 23) to take on the Illinois Fighting Illini in Busch Stadium at 6:30 p.m.
