It had been exactly 347 days since Oklahoma State took the baseball diamond. Sunday, they finally got the chance to get back to playing.
The Cowboys’ 3-1 win started with the offense getting the Cowboys a lead early. From then, it was time for the Cowboy pitching staff to put on a show. Starter Parker Scott gets credit for the win after pitching 5 innings where he allowed 5 hits but dealt six strikeouts. Two of which came back-to-back getting himself out of a bases-loaded one-out jam in the third. Scott would give up a run on a single from Corrigan Bartlett that scored Garrett Kocis.
He would make sure that was the only run for the Shockers on his watch though as he dealt another clutch strikeout in the fifth. That would be the end of the day for Scott as Kale Davis came on in relief at the bottom of the sixth. He would pitch two innings giving up four hits but dealing two strikeouts. The shockers would go scoreless the rest of the game. From there it was Justin Wrobleski on the mound in the eighth inning. The juco transfer got himself in a bit of trouble when the Shockers loaded the bases on two singles and an error. He would get a strikeout, get an out at home on a chopper then end the inning with another strikeout.
Brett Standlee would come on in the ninth and would make it quick with three straight strikeouts.
The scoring for the Cowboys was all in the first inning starting with an RBI on a fielder's choice from catcher Max Hewitt that scored Caeden Trenkle. The other two runs were scored on a double from Alix Garcia to bring in Hewitt and Justin Campbell. Garcia would have a great game going 3 for 4 with two doubles.
The Cowboys will see if they can sweep the shockers with game 2 on Monday at 2 p.m.
