The Tigers held on thanks to senior reliever Phil McCormick, who pitched the last four innings and allowed one unearned run. Charlotte scored that run in the ninth inning to tie the game because of two Missouri errors.■ From the Cheap Seats:
McCormick earned the win while giving up two hits, two walks and striking out three times. Missouri starter Jeff Scardino pitched eight innings, allowed five hits and one run, and had six strikeouts.
- Our pitching was outstanding all day today. Phil McCormick was outstanding in relief. Wow. Great performance from Scardino too. Now let's build on this win. (tigerboard.com)
- Not easy to go out and win in extra's in game 2 of a DH where you blow the first one late...good job by the Tigers today. (tigerboard.com)
