May 15, 2021

STILLWATER – Oklahoma State secured its fourth Big 12 Conference series win of the season Saturday night with a 3-1 victory over Baylor at O'Brate Stadium.
 
With the win, the 21st-ranked Cowboys improved to 30-15-1 overall and 12-11 in Big 12 play, while the Bears dropped to 29-16 and 9-11 in the league.
 
Justin Campbell continued his dominance on the mound for the Pokes as the right-hander improved to 6-1 with an eight-inning effort. He allowed just one run on six hits and struck out 10 while issuing only one walk.
 
The 10 strikeouts marked Campbell's fifth double-digit strikeout effort in his 11 starts this season and was the second-straight week he achieved the feat.
 
Zach Cable picked up his first save of the season as he kept the Bears off the scoreboard in the ninth.
 
All of the scoring in the contest was done in the third inning.
 
BU took the initial lead when Jack Pineda followed a single by Jacob Schoenvogel with an RBI double to put the Bears up 1-0.
 
The Cowboys answered in the bottom of the inning, plating three unearned runs off BU starter Hayden Kettler.
 
After three consecutive walks with one out loaded the bases, a throwing error by third baseman Antonio Valdez brought home the tying run. Up next, Marcus Brown delivered a single through the right side that brought home a pair of runs as OSU took a 3-1 advantage.
 
The Bears made things interesting in the ninth. After Cable retired the first two batters, a double by Davion Downey brought the tying run to the plate and a walk put runners on first and second.
 
But Cable secured the win by striking out Schoenvogel to record his first-career save.
 
The two teams will close out the series with OSU's final conference game of the season Sunday at 1 p.m.
