MORGANTOWN, W.Va. – Oklahoma State plated nine runs in the 11th inning to secure a series win over West Virginia with a 10-1 victory Saturday at Kendrick Family Ballpark.

With the win, the Cowboys improved to 18-9 and 5-3 in Big 12 play, while WVU fell to 15-12 and 4-4 in the league.

Tommy Molsky picked up the win in relief to improve to 4-0, while Colin Brueggemann had a big day at the plate with three hits, including a home run, and three RBIs.

In the pivotal 11th inning, OSU sent 14 batters to the plate and scored nine runs on five hits.

Tyler Wulfert got things started with a leadoff homer to left field, and Brueggemann followed with his team-leading seventh round tripper of the season to make the score 3-1.

The Cowboys were far from done. Jaxson Crull brought home the next run with a double and later scored on a wild pitch to extend the lead to four. The next run also came via a wild pitch before Brueggemann drove in two more runs with a single to extend the advantage to 8-1. The final runs came on a two-RBI single from Crull.

WVU took an early lead in the contest on a solo home run by Reed Chumley with two outs in the first inning.

Following the homer, starters Brian Holiday and Derek Clark became locked in a pitcher’s duel, with each posting shutout innings until the Cowboys finally got on the scoreboard in the eighth.

Back-to-back singles by Ehrhard and Schubart led off that inning to put Cowboys on the corners before Ehrhard came home to score when Carson Benge grounded into a double play to make the score 1-1.

Holiday finished his outing with five strikeouts over eight innings while allowing only three hits before yielding to Molsky to begin the ninth.

The teams conclude the series Sunday, with first pitch scheduled for 12 p.m. (CDT).
