BASEBALL: OSU slips past SOSU, 5-3

(Continued)

STILLWATER — “We had like a little mindset that we were going to get after (Southeastern’s Vance Woodruff) a little bit,” Green said. “Once we did it, guys just started settling back. We just have to treat this like a normal game and not worry about getting up by a lot.”

That’s when things started to unravel for the Cowboys. With two runners on, Chevis Springer’s rope to left got through Fish’s legs and rolled to the wall for an RBI double, trimming the Cowboys’ lead to 4-1 heading into the bottom of the fourth.

The Savage Storm (16-11) didn’t stop there. With Oklahoma State starter Kenton Bevaqua out, reliever Jon Perrin struggled to get anybody out as Southeastern strung together three straight singles to score two runs in the top of the fifth.

“We brought Jon Perrin in to start him in fresh and he wasn’t as sharp as he’s capable of being,” Holliday said. “He’s a guy that needs to get going because he’s given us some good innings earlier in the year. He’s in a little bit of a rut right now that he’ll get through and he’ll come back to us strong.”

While Southeastern’s offense came to life during the middle innings, Brandon Marris handcuffed the Cowboys through the middle innings. Marris allowed one hit and four walks in 4.1 innings before giving way to Cameron Mann in the eighth.

“I don’t think we struggled early,” Holliday said. “... I just give credit to Brandon Marris. I thought he pitched really good in those middle innings. ... We had runners against him, but we were unable to really center a base hit.”

Southeastern made it a little interesting late as Nick Grimmett doubled off Brendan McCurry in the top of the eighth, but McCurry slammed the door as Springer grounded out to third to end the inning.
