Cowboys score 24 runs in series vs. Kansas State
STILLWATER — Oklahoma State scored 24 runs in their weekend series against Kansas State at home to open the final Big 12 schedule at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium.
Week record: 3-1
Overall record: 15-7 (3-0 Big 12)
The week ahead: Tuesday vs. Oklahoma, Friday-Sunday at TCU
For the first time this season, redshirt freshman lefthander Mitchell Stone was not in the weekend rotation for the Cowboys.
Starting in Stone’s usual Sunday spot was righty Brett Standlee, another redshirt freshman.
Standlee had a bit of a rough go of it, allowing eight hits and four earned runs in three innings in an eventual 8-4 win over the Wildcats.
But Jake Lyons, who was the Friday starter a week earlier against Southeastern Louisiana, was superb in relief, with five scoreless innings, allowing only one hit.
For just the second time in Josh Holliday’s seven seasons as Oklahoma State’s head coach, the Cowboys swept their opening series of Big 12 play.
OSU also did it in 2016, also against Kansas State.
The Cowboys scored 24 runs against the Wildcats and have won the last eight meetings with Kansas State.
