MU, Ball State: 5-14, 18-4, 7-6

■ Missouri gets mad, gets even, says Matt Nestor of the Columbia Daily Tribune:
The same Ball State offense that shelled eight Missouri pitchers for 23 hits in a 14-5 victory in the opening game was all but silenced by a suddenly potent Ian Berger in Game 2.

Missouri’s struggling offense — which had just two multi-run innings in the first two games of the series — finally strung some hits together, scoring multiple runs in five innings in an 18-4 victory in the nightcap.

Even Coach Tim Jamieson got into the act. After arguing a missed call in the top of the fourth, Jamieson had a heated exchange with plate umpire Tom Brahan in the middle of the inning with everyone in the home dugout cheering him on.

Folgia does it all, according to the Columbia Missourian:

Meet Mr. Do-it all for the MU baseball team. Junior Greg Folgia stands 5-foot-11, weighs 194 pounds and has floppy hair. He holds down five jobs for the Missouri baseball team.

Folgia's responsibilities include lead-off hitter, relief pitcher, starting left fielder, spark plug and pitch-taker.

■ Tim Jamieson post-game on KTGR: "We gotta be tougher at the plate . . . we certainly haven't peaked yet, that's for darn sure."
