Battenfield Leads Oklahoma State Past Top-Seeded Texas Tech

Battenfield Leads Oklahoma State Past Top-Seeded Texas Tech

OSU will open the championship against top seeded Texas Tech.

The eighth-seeded Oklahoma State baseball team defeated top-seeded Texas Tech 3-0 Wednesday in the first round of the Big 12 tournament.

The Cowboys relied heavily on the arm of Blake Battenfield who pitched six innings, who only gave up four hits and struck out three batters. We've seen that before. No big surprise that those guys we're that good today.

Baylor captured the fifth seed for the conference tourney and will face West Virginia at 9 a.m. Wednesday at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

Joining Kansas and TCU in their four-team division of the bracket are No. 3-seeded Oklahoma (34-20, 12-11 Big 12) and No. 6-seeded Texas (34-20, 11-12 Big 12).

The Cowboys' starter worked out of a jam in the first inning before cruising through the next four innings. That trio combined for 10 2/3 innings in an eventual 3-1, 11-inning Cowboys win.

"Ecstatic that he's on the mound healthy", Tadlock said of Martin. We've seen it in Lubbock, we've seen it in Omaha, we've seen it in Stillwater.

"If we didn't feel good about playing next weekend, we'd attack this weekend another way", Mazey said.

Battenfield recalled his outing there - 7 1/3 innings, one run allowed - as he prepared for Wednesday's start.

13-of-14 - After having the bases loaded in the first inning, OSU's Blake Battenfield retired the next 13 of 14 batters. But the junior shortstop struck out to end the threat. Most would say that Tech is the outright champion after winning the head to head series 2-1, including a statement run-ruling in the finale, 21-3. "That was really important".

"I was just making sure I made my pitch because if I make my pitch, I'll get the results I want more often than not", Battenfield said.

Seven Mountaineers were named honorable mention all-Big 12: third baseman Cole Austin, first baseman Jackson Cramer, shortstop Jimmy Galusky, right fielder Kyle Gray, second baseman Darius Hill, reliever Sam Kessler and center fielder Brandon White.

On the other side of the bracket, the second place TCU Horned Frogs will match up with the seventh-seeded Kansas Jayhawks and the third-seeded Oklahoma Sooners take on No. 6 Texas Longhorns.

"The gameplan was to not let them hit the ball", a blunt Kearns said. "So I took a hard step toward, which is not what I should have done".

Oklahoma has twice won the Big 12 Championship.

The Cowboys built their lead over the next two frames, getting another sacrifice fly, this one off the bat of McCain, to go up 2-0 in the third and then pushing the lead to three on an RBI single by Littell in the fourth, a hit that also extended Littell's career-long hitting streak to 12 games.

"We had a wonderfully pitched game by Blake and our bullpen, with Teal and Trey Cobb were excellent", Oklahoma State coach Josh Holliday said. We just played a well-rounded game. They're very hard to pitch to.
