The Cowboys head to Tulsa today to face Oral Roberts in a midweek game just announced yesterday. OSU and ORU already faced off once previously this season, in a 7-6 victory for the Cowboys. They also have a previously scheduled game at the Golden Eagles on May 16th.
Here’s the quick hits for today’s game:
Oklahoma State (23-18, 6-10 Big 12) .vs. Oral Roberts (30-11, 19-2 Summit League)
Where: J.L. Johnson Stadium Tulsa, Ok
When: May 2- 6:30 p.m.
Listen: Cowboys Radio Network
Stats: stats broadcast
Oral Roberts is currently 31-11 on the season and 19-2 in the Summit League. Not surprisingly, they’re set to win the Summit for the 1,000th straight year (only a slight exaggeration). The team is hitting an impressive .295 as a team, led by Dylan Snypes’ team high average of .351. This offense could be a challenge for the Pokes.
The pitching staff has a 3.08 ERA.
Last time the Golden Eagles were in Stillwater, the Pokes won on a walk off in a game that went 11 innings. Let’s hope the Pokes can do it again.
Holliday’s boys are coming off a series loss where they dropped two games to Texas, and had a third cancelled due to rain. The Cowboys are in desperate need of a win if they want to keep their fading postseason hopes alive.
The pokes are currently hitting .263 with Garrett McCain leading the way with an average of .368. Look for McCain to get some hits with Garrett Benge and Colin Simpson also looking to add their totals.
The Cowboy pitching staff has a not-so-good 4.28 ERA. Jake Cowan has the lowest ERA on the staff at 2.45 in 25.2 innings pitched.
Hopefully the bats can get hot, the runs will be brought in, and the pitching will get solid so OSU can pull out a much needed victory.
Hopefully the weather will cooperate and game will happen. Oklahoma springs... gotta love’em.
