With the game deadlocked at 3 in the 15th, Bader reached on a one-out fielding error by Missouri junior third baseman Shane Segovia. Senior Cody Dent followed with a base hit and freshman Richie Martin drew a walk to load the bases with one down. Turgeon's grounder to second base drove in Bader with the go-ahead run, completing a comeback from a 3-0 deficit for the Gators (22-18, 10-7 SEC). Magliozzi replaced Poyner to begin the bottom of the frame and issued a one-out walk to junior Dylan Kelly, who was replaced by sophomore pinch-runner Nick Moore. After junior Kendall Keeton flew out to center field for the second out, senior Scott Sommerfeld ripped a pinch-hit single into center field to keep the Tigers (12-22, 4-13) alive. Although a wild pitch by Magliozzi pushed Moore and Sommerfeld over, the righty had Segovia ground out to secure the club's sixth straight league win. The teams will complete the series starting at 1 p.m. today. Freshman right-hander Tucker Simpson (1-1, 5.06) will oppose Missouri freshman righty Alec Rash (2-1, 4.57).
