STILLWATER — The Cowboys seemed to find the timely hits late, however, to help put together the rally.
In the bottom of the eighth, Robbie Rea hit a bloop to center that was trapped by the center fielder to give OSU runners on the corners with no outs. Gage Green was walked to load the bases for pinch hitter Aaron Cornell, who took to the plate for Brendan McCurry. Cornell hit a sacrifice fly to plate Romero, and Jarrett Higgins followed with a game-tying sac fly to score Rea and force the extra inning.
