CBD Visit: Kansas hammers Missouri

Blake Brown led off the game for Missouri with a single. Then that was it.

Missouri failed to get another hit for the rest of the game in its 7-1 loss to Kansas Wednesday night. Most of the Tigers’ offensive struggles were due to Thomas Taylor, who had a career night at Kauffman Stadium, adding to his already impressive résumé at the Royals’ park. The Jayhawk struck out nine batters in six innings, allowing only one run. Eight of his first 10 outs recorded were strikeouts. In two career starts now at Kauffman Stadium, Taylor has allowed only one run in 11.2 innings, with a dominant 17 strikeouts. Continue reading


College Baseball Daily Midseason All-Big 12 Team

Roughly one half of the way through the season, and there are a few players starting to distance themselves from the pack already. We compiled a list of the best players at their respective positions, and surprisingly discovered that only four players were on our Preseason All-Big 12 team. The midseason team features a pair of freshmen (David Paiz and Corey Knebel) and three transfers (Zach Johnson, Kelby Tomlinson, and Evan Mistich) among the returning veterans. Continue reading


Big 12 Weekend Preview (4/1-4/3)

As we enter the third weekend of Big 12 play, some teams are playing as expected, while other teams have stumbled out of the gate. Texas A&M has bolted out of the gate, defeating Oklahoma in the opening weekend, then shutting down the Jayhawks in week two, giving up only three unearned runs all weekend. Texas is tied for second in the league, getting by on their strong pitching, while battling to overcome a weak offense. Dan Spencer has his Texas Tech squad in a good position, tied with the Longhorns for second place. The Red Raiders are the opposite of Texas, a potent offense with a question mark on the mound.

Big 12 Weekend Preview (3/24-3/26)

The Big 12 kicks off their second week of conference play today with a five-series slate. Making their conference debuts, Missouri hosts #8 Oklahoma, while Nebraska travels to Lubbock, Texas to take on Texas Tech.

Week one didn’t go as expected. Texas jumped into first place after a sweep of a solid Kansas State team, while favorite Oklahoma scored only four runs in a series loss to Texas A&M in Norman. Texas Tech and Baylor put on quite a display of offense in Waco. Texas Tech overcame large deficits in the final two games, including a 10-6 victory to seal the series on Sunday. Kansas was the surprise, taking a pair of games from Oklahoma State in Stillwater. Continue reading

It is finally opening weekend for the Big 12 Conference. Eight of the league’s ten teams are participating in conference series, with Missouri and Nebraska playing series against non-conference foes.

The conference matchup of the weekend is between #3 Oklahoma and #12 Texas A&M in Norman. Oklahoma was the winner of 16 straight games before hitting a three-game skid against Arkansas-Pine Bluff and Arizona. The Aggies lead the league in pitching, but have struggled at times with the bat. Continue reading


Big 12 Impact Freshmen (3-16)

After 165 Big 12 games this season, a few freshmen have distanced themselves from the rest of the class of 2011.
