Texas Tech Falls to No. 11 Missouri, 3-1

Columbia, Mo. - Despite a 7-hit performance, Texas Tech (31-11) could not convert and left eight runners on base, allowing No. 11 Missouri (31-8) enough room for the win, 3-1 in Columbia. With the win Missouri moves to 4-5 in Big 12 play, while the Red Raiders fall to 3-7 in conference games.

Ashly Jacobs (11-5) drew the start and was tagged for a run in the first and third and gave way to Karli Merlich who gave up a solo run in the fifth. Jacobs allowed the two runs on five hits and three walks with no strikeouts, while Merlich allowed a run on two hits and fanned one Tiger.

Leah Legler had another solid day at the play, picking up a pair of hits. But it was her final at bat which drew the most controversy as the senior was called for stepping out of the box with runners at the corners and another opportunity for Tech to push runs across.

Freshman Mikey Kenney hit her 14th home run of the season, giving Tech its only run in the fourth. For the center fielder the 14 home runs lands her in 6th place, alone, on the Tech all-time for a career mark and trails only Kim Martinez' 1997 mark of 15 for a season best.

Emily Bledsoe and Raven Richardson each doubled on the afternoon and Jennifer Lee and Ashley Hamada added singles to the offense.

Tech and Mizzou will square off again tomorrow at Noon in the final game of the series.
