BIG 12 BASEBALL: OSU drops opener to Texas Tech

LUBBOCK, Texas — Oklahoma State tied a season high with four errors Friday night and had its five-game winning streak snapped in a 5-2 loss to Texas Tech at Dan Law Field.

The four defensive miscues by the 19th-ranked Cowboys led to three unearned runs as OSU fell to 32-12 overall and 7-8 in Big 12 Conference play.

Jason Hursh suffered the loss on the mound as the sophomore fell to 4-4 on the year. The right-hander allowed five runs, just two of them earned, on seven hits. He walked four and struck out three.

On the other side, Texas Tech ace Trey Masek tossed his second complete game of the season, striking out seven and allowing just four hits to improve to 4-1.

“We certainly didn’t do the things necessary to win a ballgame,” said OSU head coach Josh Holliday. “(Trey) Masek pitched a very good game; he’s a good pitcher and we knew that coming in. When you play on Friday nights and face the other team’s ace, it’s important that you match him back-and-forth until your club can get on the scoreboard. We weren’t able to do that.

“We did not play the type of defense, nor did we run the bases or do the things offensively, that you need to do to win the baseball game. When you have as many errors as you do hits, it’s very rare you’re going to be on the right side of the scoreboard. I’m disappointed in how we played, and I expect to see much better out of us.”

TTU (22-24, 7-12) got on the scoreboard in its first at bat. With two outs and a runner on second, Eric Gutierrez singled up the middle. The RBI hit was compounded when OSU’s Saulyer Saxon misplayed the ball in center field. After the ball rolled to the wall allowing Gutierrez to round the bases, the Red Raiders’ cleanup hitter fell running home. But after taking the relay throw, Cowboy catcher Victor Romero made an errant throw with Gutierrez scrambling to get back to third, and the second error on the play allowed the Red Raiders to plate another run.
