Mizzou senior Jacob Priday set a Big 12 Conference record with four home runs and No. 8 Missouri put up 31 runs to defeat No. 12 Texas, 31-12, on Friday night at Taylor Stadium.
Priday was 5-for-5 on the night. He set the single-game school record with four home runs, nine RBI and six runs scored. The four home runs is the most ever in the Big 12 Conference and is tied for third most in NCAA history.
With the four homers, Priday moves within one of the Missouri school record with 44 for his career. The nine RBI give him 218, which is four shy of the Mizzou career mark.
Mizzou (24-8, 6-4 Big 12) put up 10 runs in the third inning, which included Priday’s second home run, a three run shot. The Tigers had nine hits in the inning. The 10-run inning was the biggest inning for the Tigers since an 11-run inning against Mississippi Valley State on May 6, 2006.
Junior Aaron Crow, who entered the game having allowed just four runs all season, gave up five in the first inning. That snapped his streak of 42.2 scoreless innings pitched, dating back to his second start of the season. He allowed nine runs on nine hits in five innings of work, but picked up the win to improve to 8-0 on the year. The nine runs are the most allowed by Crow in his career.
