TULSA — After Oklahoma State clinched the outright Big 12 baseball title Friday night with a 2-1 walk-off win over Oklahoma, Cowboys coach Joshlooked down the table at Saxon, his senior , and shook his head.
“Man, how many moments can one guy have in one night?”said.
Saxon came up with several big catches in the outfield before his infield single in the ninth set off a celebration that left Saxon covered in shaving cream as the Cowboys celebrated their first regular-season title in Big 12 history in front of a sold-out crowd of 8,391 at ONEOK Field.
Oklahoma State won this one much like it had done all year, with timely hitting, solid defense, strong arms and a consistent sense of composure.
Even after normally unshakeable reliever Vincegave up the tying run in the eighth, never wavered on OSU finding a way.
“Our team owed it to him to score that run,”said. “That kid has pitched so good, so good that I just knew those kids would find a way to score because that’s what teammates do.”
