The Missouri Tiger baseball team blew a 9-2 lead in the eighth and ninth innings to lose to Oklahoma State 10-9 in the Big 12 Tournament Championship Game. The Cowboys scored five runs in the eighth inning to cut the Tigers’ lead to 9-7. In the ninth Josh Fields hit a leadoff home run to make it a one run game. With the bases loaded, OSU tied the game with a run on a passed ball.
Neither team scored until Keanon Simon drove in Jason Jaramillio with a sacrifice fly for Oklahoma St. in the 13th inning. In the third, Mizzou was awarded just three runs on a grand slam by James Boone. Boone was running full speed after hitting the ball to center, but Cody Ehlers stood on the bag at first to make sure it wasn’t caught. Boone got to first and almost passed Ehlers, but first base coach Tony Vitello grabbed him, which was ruled interference—Boone was called out. Mizzou will now have to wait for an at large big to the NCAA Regionals, which will be announced at 11 central time.
