Before facing Missouri, Jungmann (now 6-0) had allowed only three runs in 512/3 innings this season, all of them against Stanford.
Missouri (13-13, 1-2) touched him for its four runs in six innings. The final two came in the fifth on a two-run home run by Jonah Schmidt, his third of the season and the first allowed by Jungmann. Jungmann also walked three Missouri batters and hit two with pitches.
Before Friday, he had walked five and hit two batters all season.
"I just struggled," Jungmann said. "My fastball was a tad late, the breaking ball was there a couple times and other times it wasn't. The changeup was there sometimes and (sometimes) it wasn't."
