OSU Loses in Big 12 Title Game, Will Host Regional
TCU’s baseball team beat Oklahoma State 7-1 in the Big 12 Tournament Championship Game Sunday at the Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City, earning the Horned Frogs their first Big 12 title in any sport.
TCU broke the game open with a four-run 4th inning, helped by a pair of passed balls, and a two-run single by Dylan Fitzgerald.
OSU’s lone run came in the third inning when Saulyer Saxon laid down a bunt to score Tim Arakawa to tie the game at 1.
TCU pitcher Tyler Alexander kept the Cowboy bats at bay, throwing a complete game and giving up just four hits, while striking out four with no walks.
The good news for the Cowboys though came after the game, when it was announced OSU will be one of sixteen schools hosting an NCAA regional next weekend.
It will be the 11th time OSU has hosted a regional at Reynolds Stadium, and the first time since 2008.
OSU has won six regional titles at home, but the last time they did it was 1993.
The regional will start Friday, with game times and the other three teams for the regional to be announced on Memorial Day.
