The Purple Dragons finish the season 3-0 against Missouri opponents.

WATCH: Pittsburg tops Nevada 5-3 to close out the regular season Wednesday.

Pittsburg finishes the season 3-0 against Missouri opponents, with wins over Joplin, Carl Junction and Nevada.

“Obviously you want to go compete against those guys. They’re all really good teams that you know are going to be well-coached and they play a lot of baseball,” says Pittsburg head coach Keith Matlock on facing the Missouri programs, “For whatever reason, it does seem to amp things up a little bit more, I suppose just because it’s kind of an area thing. We like to go play the Missouri teams, because we know they’re going to be good baseball clubs that are coached well, and we’re going to have to come out and compete and play well to get a win.”
