■ Tech rallies late to defeat Missouri (Columbia Tribune):
Berger gave Missouri a quality start, holding the Raiders to one run on three hits through six innings, but Tigers relievers Kelly Fick and Buehler coughed up a 2-1 lead in the eighth inning.
Missouri’s relievers are a combined 7-9 with 10 saves. Three of those saves belong to Scooter Hicks, who has recently moved into the starting rotation.
■ Missouri bullpen struggles again in loss at big 12 tournament (Columbia Missourian):
Missouri can still win the pool and advance to Sunday’s title game if it wins its game against Oklahoma at 4 p.m. Saturday and if Texas A&M defeats Texas Tech in the final game on Saturday. Missouri coach Tim Jamieson still likes his chances of winning the pool.
“As much as we want to get to Sunday, I still think that is a real possibility,” Jamieson said.
■ The last time the Tigers and Sooners met:
Missouri drops 2 of 3 to Sooners -- 1-2, 4-7, 5-4
■ From RedRaiders.com: “We [the Sooners] finished a half-game out, so one more win for us any time during the season or Texas losing one more out of their 17 wins, that’s hard to swallow,” Golloway said. “All our guys when they go to study hall or to the weight room they see other players who have won a Big 12 title or a Big 12 championship, and our guys want to be Big 12 champs.”
