Mach's run puts Missouri over Neb. in 6-3 win

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) -- Kyle Mach scored on a wild pitch to lift Missouri over Nebraska, leaving the Tigers to go on to a 6-3 win on Saturday.

Nebraska (21-25-1, 5-18 Big 12) held the early lead after Tyler Farst drove Jeff Tezak home with a single to center.

But the Tigers stepped up with a four-run fourth-inning, including Mach's, to leave Nebraska trailing. Missouri got two more insurance runs in the sixth.

Mike Nesseth (3-4) allowed three runs over three-plus innings as Nebraska was eliminated from contention for the Big 12 Championship in Oklahoma City later this month.

Scooter Hicks (4-1) allowed one run and three hits to take the win and Brad Buehler took the save for Missouri (27-21, 13-10).
