Cowboys Win Regional, Advance To Supers
Oklahoma State’s baseball team rallied to beat Cal State Fullerton 6-4 on Sunday night to win the NCAA regional at Reynolds Stadium in Stillwater.
The Cowboys advance to the super regional round and will play either Oregon State or Cal-Irvine in the best of three series.
OSU fell behind 3-0 in the first inning, then slowly saw their offense come to life.
In the bottom of the fourth inning, Conor Costello singled to left field to score Tanner Krietemeier to cut the Titans’ lead to 3-1.
Fullerton answered with an RBI single in the top of the fifth to make it 4-1, then the rest of the scoring came from the Cowboys.
Costello struck again in the sixth inning with a 2-run home run to cut the Titans’ lead to 4-3.
Then in the bottom of the 7th, Tim Arakawa gave the Cowboys the lead, with a single to score Donnie Walton and Gage Green, giving OSU a 5-4 lead.
The Cowboys tacked on another run in the 7th on a single by Bryan Case to score Zach Fish to make it 6-4.
OSU closer Brendan McCurry pitched the final two innings to finish it off and move the Cowboys on to their first super regional since 2007.
If Cal-Irvine beats Oregon State Sunday night, OSU will host the Anteaters in the super regional next weekend.
If Oregon State beats Cal-Irvine, it forces a decisive game on Monday night in Corvallis to determine the winner of that regional.
If Oregon State wins their regional, they will host the Cowboys in the super regional in Corvallis.
