Greetings from Lindsey Nelson Stadium, home of today's doubleheader between Tennessee and Mizzou.
Mizzou's up 1-0 in the top of the 2nd against Vols RHP Nick Williams.
Vols squandered a first-and-third, one-out situation in the first, and then Mizzou went up 1-0 on a bloop single over a drawn-in infield.

Mizzou 2, Vols 0, headed to Top3.
Williams hasn't been his sharpest, but he's not been bad. A bit unlucky, as a soccer announcer might say.
Mizzou 3, Vols 0.
Mizzou's Josh Lester JUST beat out a would-be, 4-6-3 double play to end the inning. Close call, but I think blue got it right. Serrano didn't complain.
Mizzou 3, Vols 0, headed to Top4.
Scott Price just roped a two-out single to LF, but the LF made a great throw to get Will Maddox at home plate to end the inning. Maddox thought he swiped the plate the first time through, but the ump said he didn't, and then he was tagged out during the scramble to the plate.
Tough start today for Vols. Not much of anything going right. But it's early.
Mizzou 3, Vols 2, Bottom4.
Vols freshman OF Vincent Jackson just obliterated a 2-run homer off the top of the scoreboard with two outs.
Mizzou 3, Vols 2, Top5.
Williams' day is done after two Tigers reach base with one out.
Freshman RHP Aaron Quillen in from the bullpen.
Mizzou 3, Vols 2, headed to Bottom5.
Quillen works out of Williams' jam, getting a flyout and a strikeout to end the threat. Nice job by the freshman from Upper East TN.
Not the first time I've mentioned this, but it's just really fun to watch Vols Soph 3B Will Maddox play. He's a total kamikaze on offense and defense.
Mizzou 4, Vols 2, Top6.
Tigers rally with two outs, get an HBP and then an RBI double down the RF line.
Mizzou 4, Vols 3, Bottom 6.
Vols rally with two outs, getting a Vincent Jackson single before freshman catcher David Houser blasted an RBI double that missed leaving the yard by about 3-4 feet.
Vols 5, Mizzou 4, Bottom6.
Rally continues. After Houser's RBI double, Smart added an RBI single to score Houser — catcher dropped a good throw from CF — and then the RF slipped on a Maddox single to turn it into an RBI triple.
Big inning there.
Vols 5, Mizzou 4, Top8.
Fr RHP Trevor Charpie coming in for Quillen. Runner on 3rd base with one out.
That runner, by the way, just inexplicably stayed on 3rd despite a Quillen wild pitch that rolled all the way to the UT dugout. Wow.
Vols 5, Mizzou 5, Top8th.
Mizzou's Case Munson just tied with a sac fly. Two outs, go-ahead run at first base.
Vols 5, Mizzou 5, headed to Bottom8.
Thanks for the updates!
Vols in business to start the home half of the 8th.
Freshman DH Andrew Less lead off with a sharp single to CF, and then Jackson — who's having a heck of a game — legged out an infield single up the middle.
Runners on first and second. No outs.
Sr PH Zach Luther just failed to get a bunt down three times. He got out. Ouch.
Smart just lined out to CF. Now two outs. Up to Maddox now.
Maddox bounces out to 2B.
Bad execution for the Vols there. Gotta score there. Serrano will be furious.
Vols 5, Mizzou 5, headed top Top9.
Fr closer Drake Owenby now pitching for UT.
Mizzou 6, Vols 5, Top9.
Bouncer to SS with man on 3rd. Smart threw to the plate. Close play. Called safe. Serrano argues to no avail.
Mizzou 6, Vols 5, headed to Bottom9.
2-3-4 due up for Vols.
Moberg leads off the Bottom9th with a sharp single to LF and is balked to 2B.
No outs, 3-hole hitter Scott Price up at the plate. Mizzou having a mound meeting.
Price smacks a single to CF, but Vols hold Smart at 3B with no outs. Smart move.
Tie game. Great safety squeeze from RF Parker Wormsley — a former two-sport star at Webb School of Knoxville.
Still one out, runner on second.
BASEBALL FINAL IN KNOXVILLE: Vols 7, Mizzou 6.
Vols walk-off with CF Pierce Bily's single to CF. Two-run rally in 9th.
Game Two coming up in about 45 minutes.
