OU and OSU will meet for the 7th and final time this baseball season (unless something REALLY weird happens in the post-season) in the elimination bracket of the Big 12 baseball tournament at Bricktown Ballpark. First pitch is set for 7 p.m. Friday night. I really feel for OSU starter Jon Perrin, who likely impressed pro scouts with his 6 and 1/3 innings pitched. Allowing just one run early, his team gave him no support – mainly due to Texas’ terrific play behind two pitchers defensively. Texas beat the Cowboys 3-0. OU won earlier in the day with a wild finish, scoring 3 in the 8th and 3 in the 9th for a walk-off 9-8 win over Texas Tech. Oklahoma State beat Oklahoma 13-4 in the opening game of the tourney Wednesday and have topped the Sooners in 4 of 6 meetings this season.
Here’s my recap for KOSU-FM. Listen weekday mornings to the NPR station as I try my best to provide you with a little sports coverage for morning anchor Nikole Robinson Carroll.
