♦ Baylor rallies to defeat Missouri and finish sweep (Columbia Tribune)
The Tigers played catch-up for most of the first two games of the series at Taylor Stadium, and each time their rallies in the late innings came up short. So Jamieson felt pretty good yesterday when they pushed six runs across the plate in the first five innings and opened up a four-run cushion on a cool and wet afternoon.♦ Missouri falls to Baylor in series-sweeping clincher (The Maneater)
He would have felt better if they could have held it.
Jamieson said the team needed better pitching performances, especially after solid outings in the first two games of the series.
“We’re playing without much confidence right now, particularly when we don’t have Rob (Zastryzny) or Blake (Holovach) on the mound,” he said. “We’re struggling with that. We needed more out of Jeff and we needed more out of Miles before we even got to Jake. It’s not one guy. Everyone contributed.”

The Tigers had struggled to earn runs with runners on base in the first two games of the series but it was the Missouri pitchers that failed to deliver in the final game. Jeff Emens, John Miles, Jake Walsh and Brett Graves all struggled on the mound.

Over the past month, Jamieson has tried several pitchers in the third spot in the rotation but has yet to find a permanent replacement.
"When Eric left our rotation, it had an effect on everything we do," he said. "Guys haven't stepped up like we need them to."
MU IN THE MINORS
♦ Mathis to take the hill (Providence Journal)
Doug Mathis will be making his first start for the Pawtucket Red Sox on Monday night. The 28-year-old right-hander, who signed with Boston as a minor leaguer free agent last November, played Triple-A ball in both the Giants’ and A’s systems, while also pitching in Korea last season.
