OSU Hands ORU Loss In Downtown Tulsa Game

Posted: Updated:

Mistakes cost the Oral Roberts baseball team on Tuesday evening at ONEOK Field as they fell to Oklahoma State, 4-2.

The Golden Eagles take the field again on Wednesday night as they host UALR in non-conference action at J.L. Johnson Stadium. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m.

The Cowboys jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the top of the first inning when Saulyer Saxon reached on an error and scored on a single back up the middle off the bat of Victor Romero.

ORU quickly answered in the bottom of the inning. Kevin Cho recorded his first of three hits in the ball game with an infield single and moved over to second on a Logan Domenico groundout. He wasn’t standing on second for long, however, as Jose Trevino just missed a home run, reaching second for a double to drive in Cho.

In the top of the second, OSU added their second run of the ball game when Saxon doubled down the left field line to drive in Robbie Rae, who had previously reached with a leadoff single.

Two innings later, the Cowboys got a double off the bat of Craig McConaughy to start the fourth. Saxon then stepped in and laid down a bunt, but a throwing error by the Golden Eagles allowed Saxon to reach second and McConaughy to score.

In the bottom of the sixth, Trevino reached base with a one-out single to center, advancing to third on a single from Tyler Boss. Swinging at the first pitch, Nate Goro followed by making great contact, sending the ball deep enough to center to push across Trevino with the SAC fly.

Trevino finished the game with two hits, just behind Cho’s three, an RBI and a run scored. The only other Golden Eagle to record a hit in the game came in the bottom of the fifth when Austen Colt singled to left.

The Cowboys added one more run in the top of the seventh. Zach Fish started the inning off with a single to center and advanced to second as Romero picked up his third hit of the game. Two batters later, Fish scored on a wild pitch to solidify the finals spread.

Phillip Wilson and Alec Smith made appearances for the Golden Eagles out of the bullpen and pitched well in 2.2 and 3.1 innings, respectively. Smith struck out three batters and Wilson held the Pokes scoreless during his time on the mound.

Wilson entered to relief the starter Kurt Giller who earned his second loss of the season. Giller allowed three runs, despite only one being earned, six hits and struck out three.

Jon Perrin was the winning pitcher for the Cowboys.
