STILLWATER, Okla. (AP) _ Corey Brown hit a grand slam in the seventh inning to lift Oklahoma State over Arkansas State 6-to-2 in college baseball.

Brown's home run came after the Indians (14-21) knotted the score at 2-2 on RBI's by Brandon Eller and Jett Jones in the sixth inning Tuesday night.

Arkansas State starting pitcher Ryan Blackburn (0-2) loaded the bases and was relieved by Nathan Gates, whose pitch Brown hit to left centerfield.

Brown finished 1-for-5 with four RBI's and Rebel Ridling went 1-for-4 with two RBI's.

Reliever Martin Reno (1-1) earned the victory for OSU after pitching three and two-thirds innings with no hits or runs.

Blackburn allowed six hits and five runs, all earned, in six innings for Arkansas State.
