Big 12 Baseball Friday Six-Pack: Oklahoma State Walks Off Cincinnati While West Virginia Takes Down UCF

Ryan Bogusz

Is there anything better than cold beer and baseball? It’s a combination that is hard to beat during the season. No matter what kind of beer you drink (or how many), let’s take a look at some of the best action on the Big 12 baseball diamond from Friday with a nice six pack.

Best Game

#21 Oklahoma State vs Cincinnati

At one point in this game, Oklahoma State found themselves down 4-1 going into the eighth inning. I thought the Cowboys were done but instead, they were just getting started. The bats woke up in that eighth inning as they went on to score three runs to tie things up. Aidan Meola, Avery Ortiz, and Lane Forsythe all came up big in that inning.

With the game tied at four, neither team could do anything in the ninth, so it went to extras. That is when Lane Forsythe hit this grand slam to walk it off for the Pokes. What a moment and what a game.

 

Best Win

West Virginia over #17 UCF

Despite the rain slowing things down in Morgantown, that doesn’t take away from the fact that West Virginia started their weekend off with a huge win. Much like Oklahoma State, West Virginia found themselves down 5-2 in the fifth before Kyle West pulled his team within a run with this big two-run bomb.

UCF would put another run on the board in the seventh but thanks to Kyle West, the Mountaineers were able to tie the game.

A fielding error would give West Virginia the lead and they were able to close it out for the win.

Worst Loss

Texas

This weekend was supposed to be about Texas getting back on track after falling to BYU last week. Instead, they got absolutely crushed by Houston as they lost 9-1. The Longhorns failed to get anything going at the plate and starting pitcher max Grubbs had one of his worst starts in a while on the mound. Now Texas has to win their next two games to take the series and that will be easier said than done.

 

Friday MVP

Kansas 3B Michael Brooks

Michael hit not one but two home runs for Kansas on Friday afternoon. He finished his big day with a whopping 7 RBIs which is good enough to win my Friday MVP award.

Pitcher of the Day

Cincinnati RHP Seth Logue

While his team may not have gotten the win on Friday, it certainly wasn’t because of Seth Logue. He pitched six full innings and didn’t allow a single hit against a good Oklahoma State lineup.

 

Best Home Run

I mean who else could it be besides Lane Forsythe from Oklahoma State? The man hit a walk off grand slam which is something you don’t see very often.
