I'll also be uploading photos to Flickr throughout the game, so be sure to check that out here. Most of the in-game updates will come from MizzouSpot's twitter, so follow along @MizzouSpot for all the action.

Top 4—Things have got ugly here at Taylor Stadium. Eric Anderson was pulled with one out in the inning and his final line ended up at 3.1 innings, seven hits, seven runs (six earned), one walk, no strikeouts, and one hit by pitch on 55 pitches.

But things got even worse after Jeff Scardino allowed a long two-run home run to pinch-hitter Brad Propst. On the first pitch to Kevin Chambers, the following batter, Scardino hit in him with a fastball up and in.

Home plate umpire Ken McQueen immediately ejected Scardino, obviously thinking he was retaliating for Propst's home run. We'll try to find out more after the game, but with Missouri down 10-2, McQueen wasn't wrong to think there coud've been some intent. I don't think there was—and if there was, we probably get a straight answer from the coaching staff (understandably so—they'd want to protect their pitcher).

Again, I don't think Scardino was trying to send a message, but the situation at least warranted a warning. I'm not sure ejecting Scardino was the correct call, but McQueen wasn't necessarily wrong to think there was intent.
