Just one game separated streaking Texas and Missouri in the league standings, and the No. 5 seed Horns and No. 4 seed Tigers played as equals through nine innings Wednesday at the Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City. But Mizzou (38-17), unlike Texas (34-20), took advantage of its extra inning opportunity and pulled out a 3-2 win in the bottom of the 10th in the Big 12 Tournament opener.

It wasn't ugly like the first time they met. But a month later, the Missouri Tigers still have the Texas Longhorns' number. Jacob Priday still is hitting home runs. And Kyle Gibson still is dominant. The same two guys who destroyed the Longhorns in early April did it again Wednesday in the opening game of the Big 12 tournament, as the Tigers beat the Longhorns 3-2 on a 10th-inning single by Dripping Springs graduate Trevor Coleman at the AT&T Bricktown Ballpark.
