Cowboy baseball parties like it’s 1999

Cowboy baseball parties like it’s 1999

Another stellar performance from an Oklahoma State starting pitcher was just what the doctor ordered. RHP Tyler Buffett, 7th round pick by the Houston Astros, threw seven strong innings giving up one and striking out four. With help from the Cowboys defense and its 70th double play of the year, one run was all the Gamecocks could manage in the game. Michael Mertz pitched a near flawless 8th inning and Trey Cobb came in the 9th and closed it out.

Because of the great pitching, three runs were enough for the Cowboys to win 3-1 and advance to the College World Series. All the scoring for the Cowboys came in the 5th when Jon Littell singled and stole second advanced to third on a fielder’s choice. Then on a 2 out suicide squeeze from Corey Hassel, Littell scores the first run of the game and everyone was safe. After a single to make it 2-0, Walton steals second and Hassel scores on a throwing error from the South Carolina catcher trying to get Walton.

This is the Cowboys first appearance in the College World Series since 1999 and Head Coach Josh Holliday’s first appearance since being an assistant at Vanderbilt
