The Cowgirls made short order of the competition on Day 2 of the Troy Cox Classic. Like, the games were shorter.

No. 4 Oklahoma State finished 4-0 in the weekend tournament, dispatching CSU Bakersfield 11-0 before thumping New Mexico State 13-0 immediately after. Both games ended in a mercy rule. On Friday, the Cowgirls started the exhibition with a 12-1 win over New Mexico (also a run rule) and a 3-1 win over Nebraska.

Going the full count with the Cowgirls is an achievement all its own. Including last weekend’s TaxAct Clearwater Invitational, OSU has won seven of the last nine games in early innings. The Cowgirls are 12-1 on the year.

Things escalated quickly on Saturday morning. In the early game, Kansas transfer Micaela Wark got things going with a three-RBI double in the first and scored herself when Katelynn Carwile doubled and sent her home on the next at-bat.

The Cowgirls poured on five more runs in the second putting the thing out of reach at 9-0. Katie Lott’s two-run homer in the fourth set up the run rule at 11-0. Virginia Tech transfer Ivy Rosenberry earned her first win of the year allowing just two hits in five innings and striking out three.

With the quick turnaround, there wasn’t enough time for the Cowgirls’ bats to cool down between games. The Cowgirls scored five runs in each of the first two innings and then three more in the fourth to win this one.

Rachel Becker scored on a Tallen Edwards bunt (yes, that’s right) in the first to get the Cowgirls on the board. Then Chyenne Factor had a two-run single before Morgan Wynne’s fourth home run of the early season made it 5-0. It put her in a tie with Kiley Naomi for the team lead.

Not to be outdone, Naomi hit a three-run moonshot of her own in the second to take back the team home run lead. She has five on the year. Alabama transfer Megan Bloodworth threw her bat into the ring as well. She added a solo homer in the second and a three-run bomb in the fourth, her first two homers as a Cowgirl.

Freshman Kyra Aycock moved to 3-0 in the circle, allowing three hits and walking two while striking out three in her own complete game.

Next up, the Cowgirls will look to make it 5-0 on the weekend. They’ll take the short trip across state lines from Lac Cruces, New Mexico to El Paso, Texas for a matchup against UTEP at 1 p.m. Sunday.
