Mizzou baseball falls in Kerrick Jackson’s home debut


The Southeast Missouri State Redhawks spoiled Mizzou baseball's home opener, on Tuesday evening, with an 8-3 victory over the Tigers. The loss marks the first time that the MU has lost a home opener since 2015.

First-year head coach Kerrick Jackson and company are now 4-4 on the season.

The 3-6 Redhawks scored a couple of runs in the second and third innings, with Chance Resetich giving the offense the first jolt of the game courtesy of a leadoff home run to plate their first run in the second. However, that wasn't the only home run of the night. Bryce Cannon hit a grand slam, as SEMO cashed in on four walks handed out by Mizzou.

The Tigers did manage to respond, offensively. Brock Daniels brought in a runner in the fifth inning and another scored courtesy of a SEMO error, as well.

In the seventh inning, MU's Tucker Moore lifted up a leadoff home run to give Mizzou three on the board, but it wasn't nearly enough. Moore did lead the Tigers, though, going 2-for-4 on Tuesday.

On the bump, Daniel Wissler struck out his first three batters in the first inning, before giving up the first run of the game in the second. It was his first start in the black and gold.

Up next - Jackson and company will continue their homestand with a weekend series against Northern Kentucky. Game one is sete for Friday, March 1 at 6 p.m.
