Mountaineers power past Cowboys 10-7
After seven straight conference victories, Oklahoma State had its streak snapped Saturday in a 10-7 loss to West Virginia at Monongalia County Ballpark.
The loss dropped the Cowboys to 8-3 in Big 12 play and 19-13-1 overall and sets up a Sunday rubber game, which is scheduled for an 11 a.m. first pitch. OSU will try to claim its third consecutive league series win.
Offensively, Matt Kroon paced the Cowboys with a 3-for-4 effort that included a pair of doubles, while Christian Funk was 2-for-3 with a double, two walks and three RBI.
Carson Teel took the loss on the mound to fall to 4-2 on the year. The junior left-hander lasted just one inning as the Mountaineers (16-16, 2-6) sent 11 batters to the plate against him and tallied six runs.
First baseman Marques Inman led the Mountaineers on offense, going 2-for-5 with one homer and four RBI.
