BIG 12 BASEBALL: Cowboys drop series finale to K-State

STILLWATER — Keeping Kansas State's offense in check hasn't been the easiest task for any team this season. So when Oklahoma State held them to just three runs Sunday, a victory would have been expected.

And because of that, OSU coach Josh Holliday wasn't all too pleased when his 27th-ranked Cowboy squad couldn't do enough to complete the sweep of the Wildcats — instead losing the finale 3-2 at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium.

"Winning two out of three is certainly better than the alternative, but I really felt with holding them to three runs that it was a ballgame we should have won," Holliday said. “I say that out of respect to Kansas State because if you can hold a team that good to three runs, you should be in position to scrap four or five there and get the win. So I’m very disappointed with the outcome.
“Big picture, a 3-1 week is a good week, but that could have been a great week. We need a great week, and we weren’t able to finish this series the way we should have. Because of that it leaves a bad taste in your mouth. But that’s the game — when you don’t capitalize on situations that we created today, you’re gonna look back and regret that.”

The Wildcats took an early 2-0 lead in the first inning, with Blair DeBord and Austin Fisher collecting back-to-back RBI singles off Nurdin.
OSU (27-11, 7-7 in Big 12) answered with a run in the bottom of the first when Saulyer Saxon, who was hit by a pitch to open the frame, scored on a fielder’s choice RBI from Tanner Krietemeier.

The Cowboys would square things up with a Robbie Rea home run — his third of the series and fifth of the year — in the fourth inning.
