Three things to watch
Trying to extend a winning streak past four games for the first time all season, Oklahoma State heads to Texas Tech for a three-game baseball series sitting in first place in the Big 12 Conference.
The Red Raiders sit just two games behind in third, so OSU has work to do to hold onto the top spot.
Last week’s sweep of Texas gave the Cowboys their fourth four-game winning streak of the season, but they’ve yet to stretch one to five.
Rotation settling in
OSU coach Josh Holliday might be finding the right mix for his weekend pitching rotation, which has been anchored all season by Friday night starter Jensen Elliott. He threw a complete-game, one-hit shutout against Texas last week, walking two and striking out seven.
Parker Scott, a young lefty who has battled injuries through his first two seasons, has been sharp all season, but showed his ability to go deep into a game when he threw seven shutout innings against the Longhorns. His earned-run average remains at 0.89 for the season. And Sunday starter Brett Standlee has two quality starts in his last three outings.
Home runs keep flying out of the park for the Cowboys, led by Trevor Boone, who was named the Big 12 Player of the Week for his performance against Texas. He had four home runs in the series, with three in a game for the second time in as many weeks.
Boone leads the league with 13 home runs. Andrew Navigato is tied for third with nine homers, while Christian Funk and Colin Simpson are tied for fifth in the league with eight apiece.
