Oklahoma State’s baseball team clinched at least a share of the regular season Big 12 championship with a 4-2 win over Oklahoma on Thursday night at the Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City.
Baylor beat TCU 4-2 in Waco on Thursday, and combined with OSU’s win, gave the Cowboys no worse than a share of the conference championship with two regular season games left to play.
The Big 12 title is OSU’s first regular season championship in the 18 year history of the league.
The Cowboys scored on a sacrifice fly in the 4th inning, then took command when Conor Costello hit a three-run home run in the 5th inning to make it 4-0.
Oklahoma didn’t score until the top of the 8th inning, as Kolbey Carpenter scored on a wild pitch, and the Sooners added another run on a sacrifice fly.
OSU has won two of three games from OU this season, splitting two non-conference games.
This weekend’s series are all games that count in the conference standings.
The series continues on Friday and Saturday at ONEOK Field in Tulsa, with games set for both nights at 7:00.
