STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- Kyle Mach singled in the go-ahead run in the sixth inning, and Missouri capitalized on two Oklahoma State errors to stretch its lead for a 7-4 win Sunday that completed a three-game sweep.
After Mach's single made it 4-3, an error by Oklahoma State reliever Justin Friend on a pickoff attempt allowed John McKee to score from third. The Tigers (39-14, 19-8 Big 12) added two more runs on a single by Brock Bond that was misplayed by left-fielder
Ryan Pittman got the Cowboys (38-16, 16-11) within 7-4 with an RBI single off Missouri starter Ian Berger (5-1) in the sixth, but Stephan Holst, Ryan Cargano and Greg Folgis each pitched one scoreless inning of relief for the Tigers to close out the game.
Folgis earned his second save.
Missouri will be the No. 2 seed at the Big 12 tournament this week and face seventh-seeded Oklahoma in the first round. Third-seeded Oklahoma State will open the tournament against No. 6 seed Baylor.
Oklahoma State had a 2-1 lead in the first inning after an RBI single by Tyler Mach and a sacrifice fly by Rebel Ridling, but starter Andrew Oliver allowed the Tigers to tie the game on Dan Pietroburgo's sacrifice fly. Oliver then loaded the bases with back-to-back walks with one out in the second.
Martin Beno (1-2) relieved him and walked in a run to make it 3-2. He also gave up the single by Kyle Mach that put Missouri ahead to stay.
