Missouri's slender one-run lead hasn't seemed to rattle Ryan Clubb on the mound so far. He's held KU scoreless in the last two innings and has looked very good doing it. KU's hitters are way off balance right now.
Baseball live blog: Missouri vs. Kansas : Berger holds KU scoreless in second
Posted to Baseball live blog: Missouri vs. Kansas by JJ Stankevitz on April 22, 2009 at 7:34 p.m.
A good sign for Missouri: Berger got ahead in counts in the second inning and didn't throw a ton of pitches in retiring KU in order. If Berger's going to pitch deep into the game, he's obviously going to have to have innings like this against the ...
