KNOXVILLE, Tenn. – No. 3/3 Tennessee opened its series against Missouri with a bang, tying a season high with six home runs to cruise to a 10-1 win on Thursday night at Lindsey Nelson Stadium.

Six of the Vols’ 10 hits on the night left the yard while all 10 of their runs came via the long ball. UT has now hit six home runs in a game five different times this season.

Billy Amick picked up where he left off in the midweek with his second straight two-homer game, bringing his total to 16 on the year. The junior third baseman went 3-for-5 and drove in four runs, giving him 11 RBIs over his last two games.

Christian Moore had another big night at the dish as well, hitting a homer to leadoff the bottom of the first inning to get things rolling, marking his sixth home run in his last six games. The New York native finished 3-for-4 with a walk and two runs scored for the game.

Cal Stark also went deep for the fifth time this season, hitting a three-run blast to put UT ahead 4-0 in the second inning.

Cannon Peebles rounded out the scoring for the Big Orange with his first homer of the year, a solo shot in the bottom of the eighth.

The duo of starter Chris Stamos and reliever AJ Causey was excellent on the mound, combining for nine strikeouts while allowing just one run over 8.2 innings. Causey got the win to improve to 7-3 on the year after tossing six innings out of the bullpen while finishing with six punchouts.

Danny Corona led the Tigers (19-24, 6-13 SEC) at the plate from the nine hole, going 2-for-3 with a solo home run in the seventh inning to account for Missouri’s lone run.

Starting pitcher Ryan Magdic fell to 1-2 on the year after giving up five runs on three hits, all home runs, in three innings of work.

STAT OF THE GAME: The nation’s longest hitting streak came to an end on Thursday night as Blake Burke failed to record a hit for just the third time this season, ending his program-record 31-game hit streak.

UP NEXT: The Vols (35-7, 13-6 SEC) will look to secure their sixth straight SEC series win with a victory in game two of the series on Friday night. First pitch is slated for 6:30 p.m. and the game will be streamed on SEC Network+ and the ESPN app.
