Thursday, May 27, 2004

ARLINGTON, Texas -- Garrett Broshuis allowed six hits over 6 2/3 innings to remain unbeaten this season, and the Missouri Tigers won their fifth straight game, 9-5 over the Oklahoma Sooners on Wednesday in the Big 12 tournament.

Missouri (35-20) will meet Baylor at 5 p.m. today. Oklahoma (36-21) will face Texas Tech at 10 a.m. today.

Broshuis (10-0) took a 6-0 lead into the seventh before two Tigers errors led to four unearned runs on Jeff Scuderi's two-run double and Ole Sheldon's two-run single.

Another run scored in the seventh on reliever Mark Alexander's bases-loaded walk to make it 6-5.

Broshuis, a graduate of Advance High School, struck out five and walked one. Alexander pitched the final 2 1/3 innings for his 10th save.
