For Oklahoma: big flies and a bold rally.
For Oklahoma State: another bullpen breakdown.
Except the Cowboys rewrote the ending, pulling out a 7-6 win in 10 innings with an unearned run started by a two-out error and finished on a wild pitch.
Junior Mike Strong started for the Cowboys and pitched seven innings, with six strikeouts.■ Big 12 Stock Report (NewsOK.com)
Catcher Kevin David said it was unfortunate they couldn’t get the win for Strong, but said Strong’s priorities lie elsewhere.
“It’s kind of been that way for most of our starters this year,” David said. “They pitch really well and we can’t get a win for them. He’s just happy we can win as a team.”
In the ninth inning, the Cowboys were two strikes away from ending it, but a single up the middle tied the game at six and sent it into extra innings
Thomas Keeling, LHP, gave the Cowboys a boost, dominating Nebraska in last Friday’s series opener with 7 1/3 scoreless innings and 11 strikeouts in a win. Baseball America listed him as one of its "Three Up” draft prospects after the performance. Keeling has always had the stuff, he’s just struggled with command. If he finds it consistently, he could be a difference maker for the Pokes.■ Baseball Bears lasso Oklahoma State (OzarksFirst.com) has a video report of the OSU-MSU game

After breaking through to win a much-needed Big 12 series against Nebraska, Oklahoma State lost back-to-back mid-week games to Wichita State and Missouri State. The Cowboys have also lost mid-week games to the likes of Alabama A&M and Florida Gulf Coast this season, exposing their lack of depth.
