Mizzou Baseball Game Day: Turning over a new streak

Something changed for the Missouri baseball team in the fifth inning of its 3-2 win against Kansas on Saturday.

With two outs, Missouri finally caught a break. A wild pitch by Kansas pitcher Tanner Pope led to the Tigers' first run of the game. A moment later, senior Jonah Schmidt got an RBI hit with a runner in scoring position, something the team has struggled to do over the past month.

“There was tension,” Brown said of the Tigers’ mentality during the skid, “but I thought overall we’d come to the park each day with a solid approach: Try to stay relaxed and stay calm. We knew it couldn’t last forever, so we were just waiting for our opportunity. I think today is going to be the start of something good for us.”

If Missouri was ever going to get the monkey off their back, this was the time to do it.

The Tigers beat the Kansas Jayhawks 3-2 on Saturday at Taylor Stadium, thus snapping a grueling nine game losing streak, as well as a six game skid against Kansas

When he's not studying finance and economics, he enjoys playing Call of Duty on his Xbox and taking his 2-year-old yellow lab to the dog park — he spends a lot of time there, he says. He also volunteers at Big Brothers Big Sisters of Columbia, likes Southside's pizza more than Shakespeare's and enjoys karaoke.

If baseball doesn't work out, Schmidt jokes his backup plan is to move to California with some teammates and start a boy band. For now, though, he might just lead the seventh-inning stretch.
