Missouri holds off Oklahoma 5-4

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) - Greg Folgia went 3 for 4 including an RBI double to help Missouri beat Oklahoma 5-4 on Sunday.

The Tigers (15-16, 5-7 Big 12) scored all 5 of their runs - just 1 of them earned - in the bottom of the second inning. Aaron Senne hit a two-run single while Rex Meyr had an RBI single and Ryan Lollis drove in a run with a sacrifice fly.

Oklahoma (25-7, 6-3) got on the board with Chris Elliott's one-run homer in the third. The Sooners added one run in the fifth and two in the seventh, including a lead-off homer by Garrett Buechele.

Nick Tepesch (2-2) earned the win, allowing four runs on six hits with nine strikeouts in six innings. Oklahoma starter Antwonie Hubbard (1-1) pitched an inning and two-thirds for the loss.
