Columbia, MO- There's the old saying "Third time's a charm", right? What about three points? In all three Mizzou athletic events today, that's how many points were scored by the Tigers.

Ashton's first four passes were completions, as he finished 14/17 for 95 yards. James Franklin went for 116 yards and two scores.

Game two of the day was the softball game against big rival Oklahoma. The Tigers currently hold the longest-active streak in the NCAA as far as home victories at 30. After leading OU 2-1 in the top of the 6th, the Sooners tied it up, and it wasn't until a walk-off home run by the Tigers to give them the 3-2 victory, extending their home streak to 31. Tomorrow's game is at 3pm, and will be broadcast nationally on ESPN's flagship network (DirecTV channel 206).
Game three was the Border War- baseball style. The Kansas Jayhawks were in town, and after demoralizing the Tigers last night 8-3, Mizzou was looking for some revenge. After committing an error in the top of the 1st, the beakers took a 1-0 lead, and would add to it again in the top of the third. That was the last time they would cross the plate and have it count. The Tigers tied it up in the bottom of the fifth, and a RBI single by Blake Brown in the bottom of the ninth set up the 3-2 victory for the Tigers. The final game of the series is tomorrow at 1p at Taylor Stadium.
