STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) -- Russell Moldenhauer hits a grand slam during a 5-run 5th-inning outburst as Texas beats Oklahoma State 7-to-2 Saturday.

It is the Longhorns' second win in as many games in the key Big 12 Conference baseball series.

First-place Texas moves to 36-12 overall and 16-4 in league play, while OSU falls to 31-12 and 10-7.

The loss dropped OSU into third place, one game behind Missouri in the Big 12 standings.

Corey Brown's two-run first-inning home run gave OSU a 2-0 lead, but the Cowboys managed only 5 hits after that.

Texas' Preston Clark tied the game in the 4th inning with a 2-run home run.

In the 5th, Moldenhauer hit his grand slam off reliever Tyler Lyons, and Nick Peoples followed with a solo homer, putting the Longhorns ahead 7-2.

OSU loaded the bases with one out in the 7th, but Texas reliever Joseph Krebs struck out Brown and Tyler Mach to end the threat.
