Cowboys Come Up Short Against ORU

Posted: Updated:
TULSA, Oklahoma -

Oklahoma State came up short against in-state foe Oral Roberts Tuesday night at J.L. Johnson Stadium as the Cowboys fell 4-1.

OSU's third-straight loss dropped the Cowboys to 23-19 on the season, while the Golden Eagles won their fifth in a row and improved to 32-11.
 
OSU has not won on ORU's home field since March 28, 1995, a streak of seven consecutive losses. The Cowboys are scheduled to face the Golden Eagles once more at Johnson Stadium in 2017, with that meeting coming on May 16.
 
Six different ORU pitchers held the Cowboys to a season-low two hits, while OSU starter Blake Battenfield took the loss to fall to 2-3 on the season.
 
The Golden Eagles plated their first run in the third against Battenfield on a two-out RBI double off the bat of Nick Roark, and they extended that lead in the next inning as Jake Cowan gave up a pair of hits before a sacrifice fly by Brent Williams made the score 2-0.
 
ORU continued to increase its lead in the fifth against the third Cowboy pitcher of the night, Reid Morgan. After loading the bases on two walks and a single, Noah Cummings delivered a two-out, two-RBI 1B to center field to give the Golden Eagles a 4-0 advantage.
 
The Cowboys' lone run came in the sixth. After pinch hitter Cade Cabbiness was hit by a pitch and Garrett Benge walked, McCain laced an RBI single through the right side.
 
OSU's only other hit came on a leadoff double by Jon Littell in the third inning, but he was left stranded there.
 
The Cowboys return to action Friday night when they open a three-game series with Lamar at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium.
