Central Missouri welcomed home a ranked Central Oklahoma team to town for a conference weekend series. Central Oklahoma has been a team that can flat hit, both in past years and this year. However, the old saying goes, pitching and defense win championships.

The Mules of Central Missouri currently hold the best ERA in the conference in 2.56. Surprisingly the mules sit 10th in the conference in fielding percentage. Despite the oddity of the stats, Central Missouri played host to one of the bigger matchups in the MIAA conference.

After the weekend series ended Central Missouri took 2 of the 3 in the series. The rubber match being a 12-0 shutout in favor of the home team Mules. The shutout featured 6 strong innings from Steven D’Amico with 10 groundball outs and 5 k’s.

The Mules did dip in the ABCA rankings to #4 in the country, but still remain the top team in the state of Missouri.

Lindenwood and Maryville jump two spots in my rankings, everyone else stayed around the same area in my top 13.
