BIG 12 BASEBALL: Pokes rally past Kansas State

STILLWATER — The Oklahoma State University baseball team has shown the ability to come from behind this season. The Cowboys have 11 come-from-behind victories. Saturday at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium, the Cowboys added another, as they overcame a four-run deficit in a 7-6 victory over the Kansas State Wildcats in front of a capacity crowd.

“We’re just scrappy,” designated hitter Trey Whaley said. “We are resilient during the game. We trusted our at-bats and it came up huge in the end.”

The Wildcats (27-13, 6-5), who were held in check by Jason Hursh on Friday, pounded seven hits and scored six runs in 2 1/3 innings, ending Mark Robinette’s start. Oklahoma State’s starter threw 57 pitches, using more than 20 in each of the first two innings. Kansas State got a RBI double by Jon Davis in the first to take a 1-0 lead. In the third, Shane Conlon hit a RBI double and Jared King and Davis hit RBI singles to push the Wildcats’ lead to 6-2.

Oklahoma State’s Saulyer Saxon said the team wasn’t affected by the slow start.

“We stayed in the dugout like it was a 0-0 game,” Saxon said. “In the dugout you couldn’t tell if the score was tied. We knew our time was going to come and eventually it did.”

After the Cowboys (27-10, 7-6) jumped all over K-State’s Friday starter, they struggled with Saturday’s pitcher Matt Wivinis. Oklahoma State was held to just three hits through four innings. In the fifth, Oklahoma State rallied.

Whaley led off with a single but was picked off at second for the second out. Donnie Walton and Tanner Krietemeier walked to load the bases. Randy McCurry hit what looked like a routine groundout but Kansas State’s shortstop Austin Fisher overthrew second baseman Ross Kivet, sending the ball into the outfield and allowing two more runs to score.
