Baseball Round Up -- History in Stillwater

In 26 years of play at Allie P Reynolds Stadium, Oklahoma State had never been swept. That was until this weekend. Oklahoma State came in averaging nearly 9 runs per game, but only scored 4 runs the entire series (3-2, 7-2, 7-0). Longhorn batters flashed their power, hitting 5 HRs in the series. The pitching staff saw great relief appearances from Randy Boone and Joseph Krebs. Austin Wood was solid in a Sunday start, to go with a solid 5 innings from James Russell and 6 1/3 from Adrian Alaniz. Jordan Danks struggled mightily at the plate but Chais Fuller had a solid weekend of defense and hitting from the shortstop position.

The sweep gives Texas a 3.5 lead in the Big XII standings. Taking two of three from Missouri next weekend would clinch the Big XII regular season title for the Horns. Texas returns to action next Friday night in Austin against Mizzou.
