Texas Baseball Loses Series to OSU

Updated: Sunday, April 27 2014, 08:28 PM CDT

The No. 10/16 Texas baseball team dropped its series finale to No. 21/14 Oklahoma State, 8-3, Sunday afternoon at UFCU Disch-Falk Field.
 
The Cowboys only outhit the Longhorns 10-9, but Texas left 11 runners on base in the game. Brooks Marlow, Ben Johnson, Mark Payton and Collin Shaw all went 2-for-4, with Payton extending his reached-base streak to 84 games.
 
Starter Nathan Thornhill (6-2) was pegged with the loss after allowing a career-high seven runs on seven hits in 3 1/3 innings. It was an uncharacteristic outing for Thornhill, who had allowed just seven runs in 64 2/3 innings heading into the game.
 
The loss dropped Texas to 32-13 overall and 10-8 in the Big 12, while Oklahoma State improved to 31-13 overall and 13-5 in the Big 12.
 
Thornhill surrendered two two-run home runs in the first four innings, putting Texas in a hole it couldn't climb out of. Craig McConaughy’s two-out, two-run homer to left field put the Cowboys on the board first in the top of the second. Zach Fish tacked on Oklahoma State’s second two-run homer of the game in the fourth inning, giving the Cowboy’s a 4-1 lead.
 
Tres Barerra, who led off in the bottom in of the second, responded with his second home run of the year. Barrera’s solo bomb to left field cut the deficit to 2-1, but Texas missed a chance to take the lead an inning later when it left the bases loaded.
 
The Cowboys scored five runs off five hits in the fourth, including Fish’s homer. Later in that inning, with a full count, McConaughy and Bryan Case both had RBI singles to chase Thornhill from the game.
 
LHP Ty Culbreth replaced Thornhill on the mound in the fourth inning with runners on first and second and one out and issued a walk to load the bases. Case scored on a fielder’s choice to put Oklahoma State on top 7-1 heading into the fifth.
 
In the sixth inning the Longhorns got one run back as C.J Hinojosa reached first on McConaughy’s fielding error and later scored on Zane Gurwitz’s RBI ground out.
 
The Cowboys responded the following inning when Tim Arakawa’s two-out RBI single to center field scored Saulyer Saxon to increase the Cowboys’ advantage to 8-2.
 
Texas tried to rally in the ninth, with Johnson singling and Payton driving him in with a double, but could manage only the one run. 
 
Chad Hollingsworth pitched three innings, allowing one run off two hits and striking out three. John Curtiss pitched the final two innings of the matchup and gave up just one hit and struck out two. Oklahoma State starter Vince Wheeland (5-0) was credited with the win after allowing one run off three hits in three innings.
 
Texas returns to action on Tuesday when it plays host to Prairie View A&M at 6 p.m.
