Missouri 15, Texas Tech 2

COLUMBIA, Mo. (AP) -- Ryan Lollis matched a career high with four hits and drove in five runs as Missouri beat Texas Tech 15-2 in Big 12 Conference play.

The Tigers outscored the Red Raiders 42-14 in the three-game series this weekend.

Lollis was 4-for-5 Sunday and also scored three times for Missouri (24-21 overall, 11-10 in the Big 12). Junior Greg Folgia extended his hitting streak to nine games and was 2-for-4 with 3 RBIs and a pair of runs scored.

Folgia put the Tigers on the board with a two-run double in the bottom of the first. Later in the first, Kyle Mach singled to drive in Folgia. That came after Texas Tech (20-17, 9-12) had plated one in the top half of the first.

Nick Tepesch (4-4) struck out nine for the win. He struck out five-straight batters in the sixth and seventh innings. Nathan Karns (3-5) took the loss for Texas Tech.
