Nice Game

This game might do something for the confidence level of the Missouri Tiger baseball program:

Sophomores Max Scherzer and Michael Cole combined for the first no-hitter at Missouri since 1981 as the Tigers defeated Texas Tech 25-0 on Friday night at Taylor Stadium.

Dang, that's impressive. The two Tiger pitchers also recorded 18 K's. Tech is usually a solid program, but they struggled against the Tigers in all facets last night. From the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal:

The Red Raiders set new league marks for most walks, runs and hit batters allowed in an inning as Missouri plated nine runs without ever putting the ball in play during a 17-run second-inning. That led to a 25-0 laugher by the Tigers at Taylor Stadium, tying the mark for the worst loss in the 56-year history of the Tech baseball program. Along the way, the Red Raiders were no-hit for the first time in 26 years as the Tigers captured their fifth win over Tech in the last six meetings between the schools.
