Brandon Moss hit a three-run homer in the fourth and Mike Moustakas' solo home run in the fifth tied the game.

DENVER (AP) - Rookie Antonio Senzatela threw eight sharp innings to grab a share of the major league lead in wins, and the Colorado Rockies beat the St. Louis Cardinals 10-0. Charlie Blackmon had a homer and run-scoring single as part of an eight-run eighth in the game Friday night. Fresh off a 7-3 road swing, the Rockies kept right on rolling behind Senzatela.

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Brian Howard struck out 12 in a shutout to help second-seeded TCU advance in the Big 12 Conference Tournament with a 6-0 win over Kansas on Friday night. Howard allowed only four hits and walked none in the win for the Horned Frogs, who advance to face Texas on Saturday. The seventh-seeded Jayhawks were eliminated after their second straight loss in the tournament.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) - Iowa beat top-seeded Nebraska 2-0 Friday in the quarterfinals of the Big Ten baseball tournament. Ryan Erickson struck out six in holding back the top-seeded Cornhuskers, who had scored 36 runs in their previous two games. Nebraska loaded the bases with two outs in the eighth and ninth innings but instead got shut out for just the second time this season.
