OSU Baseball: Cowboys Drop Game to Sooners, Still Have a Shot at Big 12 Title

Saturday’s game will be big.



[Devin Wilber/PFB]

Things certainly did not go the Cowboys’ way in Norman on Friday night, but the Pokes can still snag a share of the Big 12 on Saturday.

Oklahoma shut out Oklahoma State 5-0 in Game 2 of the Bedlam series, marking just the second time the Cowboys have been shut out this season. All hope is not lost, though, as West Virginia lost 10-4 to Texas on Friday in Austin. So, should the Cowboys win and the Mountaineers lose on Saturday, the Cowboys would grab a share of the Big 12 title.

OU pitcher Braden Carmichael was the star of the show Friday. He threw all nine innings, allowing just four hits while striking out five, walking none and hitting one. Zach Ehrhard, Nolan Schubart, Nolan McLean and David Mendham were the only Pokes with hits.

It looked as if the Cowboys might get something going in the sixth, getting their first two batters on base. But from there, Carson Benge grounded into a fielder’s choice before Chase Adkison grounded into a double play to end the inning.

Juaron Watts-Brown started on the mound for OSU, throwing five and 1/3 innings where he gave up four runs on five hits while walking five and striking out nine. OU put a pair of runs on him in the fourth and again in the fifth.

First pitch for the all-important Game 3 is at 4 p.m. Saturday. West Virginia and Texas get going at 2:30 p.m. Saturday, meaning it’s likely the Cowboys will know whether they won or lost the Big 12 after their game.
