Oklahoma State baseball: Cowboys extend win streak to 6, sweep Little Rock

The Cowboys outscored the Trojans 21-1 during midweek series sweep.

C.J. Varela threw seven scoreless innings, and Oklahoma State extended its winning streak to six games with a 12-0 victory against Little Rock on Wednesday at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium in Stillwater.

The right-handed senior pitcher allowed only one hit, a single, and struck out five in his first shoutout and complete game in his career.

Jake Thompson hit a career-high five RBIs, Carson McCusker drove in two runs and Hueston Morrill was 3-for-3 with two doubles for the Cowboys (7-2), who swept the Trojans (6-4) in midweek series sweep. OSU won the first game 9-1 on Tuesday behind three home runs from McCusker, Brock Mathis and Kaden Polcovich.

Little Rock starter Austin Smith only lasted a third of the first inning after allowing five runs on three hits and walked three. Thompson started the scoring with a RBI single through the right side then Max Hewitt made it 2-0 with a groundout to second and McCusker hit a two-run double to right center for a 4-0 lead. Caeden Trenkle ended Smith’s night with a RBI single to left center to score McCusker.

In the second, Thompson smacked a two-run double down the infield line on a 3-2 pitch to make it 7-0. OSU added two runs in the eighth when Morrill stole home and Alix Garcia hit a single to right for Noah Sifrit to score.

In the fifth, the Cowboys racked up three runs when McCusker scored on a passed ball and Thompson drove in two on a single to left.

What’s next

The Cowboys head to Texas to play three games in the Frisco College Baseball Classic at Dr Pepper Ballpark. OSU will start its weekend against UCLA at 3 p.m. Friday. The tournament will be streamed on FloBaseball.
