Game Day: Missouri 17, North Dakota 5

Former Tiger finds home as North Dakota hitting coach (Tiger Extra)

The Tucson, Ariz., native coaches third base and works with the catchers and, yes, is the team’s hitting coach.

Though Field hit just .207 at Missouri, he helped spark the Tigers’ run in the 2006 postseason. The catcher was 4 for 11, including a five-RBI game against Oklahoma, in the Big 12 Tournament. Field then went 7 for 17 and was named to the all-region team as the Tigers won the NCAA regional at Pepperdine.
A reminder: The double-header originally scheduled for Saturday has moved to Friday. Game 1 @ 4PM.

■ The Tigers have 4 games scheduled against the Fighting Sioux of North Dakota, a team ranked 284th in RPI among 300 Division I teams, according to Boyd's World. Then they host Arkansas-Pine Bluff, ranked 289th in RPI, for a pair of games this coming week.

Mizzou is currently ranked 126th in the Boyd's World RPI rankings.

Any bets on how many places MU's RPI ranking will fall - even if the Tigers go 6-0 against these teams?
