WVU baseball tops Cowboys in 10 innings

Late game eliminates Mountaineers

OKLAHOMA CITY — Jacob Rice singled in the winning run in the bottom of the 10th inning and West Virginia beat Oklahoma State 6-5 on Saturday to stay in the chase temporarily for the Big 12 tournament title.

The third-seeded Mountaineers (33-26) trailed 5-0 before scoring five times in the sixth. Ryan Tuntland had a two-run single before Ryan McBroom and Brady Wilson hit back-to-back home runs to tie it.

West Virginia was denied the opportunity to face Oklahoma for the title Sunday when Kansas beat TCU in the late game of tournament action on Saturday.

Randy McCurry hit a two-run home run for the second-seeded Cowboys (39-17), who were winless at the tournament despite leading all three games.

Corey Walter (5-5) threw four scoreless innings of relief for West Virginia.

Oklahoma State closer Brendan McCurry (6-3) took the loss.
