Mizzou Diamond Sports take on regional rivals
While softball will have to wait until this afternoon for revenge against a regional rival – tune in to B1G+ if you have it at 12pm and 2pm to check it out – Bieser Ball took on its own regional rival, Saint Louis University, and took a ram from the Billikens.
Fresh off of wins over San Francisco and Arizona State on a surprise West Coast road trip this weekend (read Kortay’s recap), the Tigers came home and broke for 18 runs and 17 hits, sending the Bills back to The Lou (Happy 314 Day, y’all) in just 7 innings. According to MUTigers.com, Mizzou had 10 players recording an RBI and 11 producing a hit, including Nander De Sedas and Fox Leum, who were both 2 for 3. De Sedas had a triple and four RBIs, while Leum had three points produced.
The Tigers started right away, dropping six runs on SLU in the first inning, then added eight more in the sixth, including three on a Jackson Beaman 3-run shot, also the first hit of his career.
Next, Missouri Baseball will open SEC play against the Vanderbilt Commodores in Nashville. The last time we saw the ‘Dores was against Mississippi State in the CWS, in Nashville.
As for softball, which I honestly feel like I spend all my non-work hours covering [no complaints really]], is in Champaign-Urbana for Braggin Rights, Softball Style. From my own preview, which you can read today:
Missouri and Illinois have met a grand total of 14 times since 2009 in Braggin Rights games, and Mizzou holds the overall lead, 10-4, but Illinois has taken four of the last nine. They last met on the softball field on March 11 and the Tigers lost 2-1. MUTigers.com was full of fun facts about the game’s history, citing the March 25, 2015 game as the Tigers’ biggest winning margin when they beat Illini, 17-5. Mizzou has scored 69 total points against them over the past 13 years, and is averaging around 4.93 points per game.

5. Trajan Jeffcoat would be Brady’s first choice, simply because he doesn’t want him chasing him the whole game.

Nice to have my former teammate, roommate, a big tiger, and someone I call a brother on the Border War podcast this week. We will go back in time, discuss NIL, recruitment, the transfer portal, as well as our thoughts on the direction of the program. #MIZ @KCSportsNetwork pic.twitter.com/HYPlN8IzpG
