OSU Softball: Comeback Attempt Falls Short, Cowgirls Drop Game 2 at BYU 11-8

BYU logged two grand slams against OSU, but the Cowgirls still fought back to make it a game.



After falling behind early, the Cowgirls scored five runs in the fourth and fifth innings and almost mounted a comeback. But it wasn’t quite enough.

Oklahoma State fell to BYU 11-8 on Friday night. The loss evens the weekend series after the Cowgirls earned a 3-2 decision in Provo on Thursday night.

Friday’s tilt got started with a bang, when BYU’s Huntyr Ava rocked the first pitch thrown her way over the right-field fence for a grand slam. The Cowgirls were playing from behind from there.

Each team traded a run in the second, and then OSU’s single run in the top of the third was followed up by another BYU grand slam, this time by Hailey Morrow. The Cougars would get another home run in the third to make it 10-2.

Despite the huge deficit, the Cowgirls answered with a run of their own.

Megan Bloodworth rocked her third home run of the season in the fourth, one of four runs batted in, to get the would-be comeback going in the fourth.

Then Taylor Anderson smacked a ball off the scoreboard, her first career bomb.

Caroline Wang’s solo homer in the fifth pulled the Cowgirls within four before Bloodworth reached on a fielder’s choice, to score Haidyn Sokoloski to make it 10-7.

OSU would score three runs in the fourth and two more in the fifth, and then a final run in the seventh. But it wasn’t enough to overcome the huge plays and momentum BYU enjoyed at home.

Kyra Aycock falls to 4-2 after allowing six runs and striking out two in five and a third innings. Katie Kutz allowed five more runs in just two-thirds of an inning pitched.

Next Up

With the loss the Cowgirls move to 25-5 and 6-2 in Big 12 play. They’ll get a chance at some redemption in Game 3 which has been pushed up to 12:30 p.m. CST Saturday, due to some expected inclement weather in Provo.
