Comeback Cowboys

OSU rallies to clip Missouri State in 10 innings

STILLWATER — The Comeback Cowboys struck again Tuesday at Allie P. Reynolds.

The No. 26-ranked Oklahoma State University baseball team, which won five come from behind games heading into Tuesday’s contest with Missouri State, came from three runs down to clinch a 5-4 victory in 10 innings over the visiting Bears.

“This team never lets the score dictate their spirit or their effort,” OSU coach Josh Holliday said. “They’ve learned if they play all nine innings, sometimes 10 or 14, with a high level of concentration, that you’re never out of a game. The value of the New Mexico trip to us is that once you’ve done it once, you know you can always do it, and our guys have been able to reach back on that and know we’re never out of a game.”

With Tuesday’s late rally and win in the extra frame, six of Oklahoma State’s eight wins on the season the Cowboys (8-2) have had to fight their way back for the victory.

“We just kind of keep grinding it out — have good energy and good things will happen to you,” said Randy McCurry, who was 2-for-4 at the plate and improved to 2-1 on the mound. “We never quit, never stop trying, and that’s the result of it right there.”

McCurry is the perfect example of grinding it out for OSU. On Sunday, the Cowboys had their seven-game winning streak snapped when McCurry gave up two runs in the ninth to take the loss.

In Tuesday night’s battle with the Bears, McCurry was called upon again late — both on the mound and at the plate. The senior from Tupelo was called in to get two outs in the top of the 10th inning with Missouri State attempting to take the lead with two runners on — dispatching of the batters faced to keep the game tied.
