Provided by Texas Tech Athletics

LUBBOCK, Texas – Texas Tech entered the weekend with the Big 12's longest active streak without suffering a shutout, 91 games. That streak was snapped when Missouri handed the Red Raiders a 9-0 loss on Friday night at Dan Law Field at Rip Griffin Park.

The Red Raiders fall to 23-22 overall and to 3-13 in Big 12 play while Missouri improves to 23-17 overall and to 6-10 in Big 12 action.

Missouri left-handed pitcher Rob Zastryzny (4-2) threw a complete-game seven-hit shutout with five strikeouts and two walks to lead the Tigers to their fourth consecutive Big 12 win.

Texas Tech starting pitcher John Neely (3-5) allowed eight runs – seven coming in the fourth inning – on nine hits with three strikeouts and two walks.

The Red Raiders tallied seven base hits in the game, four coming from junior catcher Bo Altobelli (4-for-4) and two from junior second baseman Jamodrick McGruder (2-for-4). Redshirt freshman Jordan Lopez recorded Tech's only other base hit going 1-for-2.

The game was scoreless heading into the fourth inning when the Tigers tallied seven runs on six base hits as 10 Missouri batters came to the plate. Three doubles and a two-run homer by Blake Brown highlighted the fourth inning for Missouri.

Tech left nine runners on base, including four runners that were stranded at third base.

The Red Raiders used three relievers in the game, two of which finished with scoreless relief efforts. Sophomore David Paiz pitched 2.2 scoreless innings while junior Blake Stewart pitched a scoreless eighth inning with a pair of strikeouts.

Texas Tech and Missouri will resume their three-game series on Saturday, April 28 with a 5:07 p.m. first pitch. The game will be televised on Fox34 News Now.
