♦ Eric Anderson left his last start early due to soreness in his arm. Tex Little asked Tim Jamieson about EA's status during a pre-game interview prior to Tuesday's UND game:
The MRI results came back with a strained flexor tendon, so there's no damage to the ligament or to the nerve, which would have kept him out for a longer period of time, and it's a positive situation, where we ought o be able to get him back fairly soon.GAME DAY
♦ Missouri baseball team trounces North Dakota 21-5 (Columbia Missourian)
Not nearly as sloppy as Tuesday night’s game but every bit as ugly, the Tigers hit, ran and walked all over the seemingly lifeless Fighting Sioux en route to a 21-5 victory, sweeping the two game series and easily extending their winning streak to eight.♦ Tigers blast North Dakota 21-5 to complete sweep (The Maneater)

"From the very get-go, our at bats were really great," Missouri coach Tim Jamieson said. "You score first, it makes it a lot easier for everybody."
Clearly. Only one of the Tigers nine starters didn't record a hit in Wednesday's game. Brown had four, and senior third baseman Conner Mach added three to the team's total of 18.
"Hitting is like a disease, and once someone catches it, everybody's got it," Brown said.
The Tigers enter this weekend’s three game series against High Point riding an eight-game winning streak. The Panthers are also carrying some momentum into Columbia, having won six of their last eight games.
“We definitely can’t take them lightly,” Mach said. “They’re going to be a good team, they’re going to come out here and fight…(we’ve) got to keep the same mentality, come out with a lot of energy and jump on them early.”
