Oklahoma Sooners: Jared Womack

With the tiebreaking run on third and the series on the line in the eighth inning, Oklahoma State’s Randy McCurry punched a shallow fly ball down the right-field line. Oklahoma's Cody Reine came barreling in to make a basket catch for the second out, then fired the ball toward home. The throw reached the plate before tagging runner Robbie Rea did. But a collision with OU catcher Dylan Neal popped the ball loose.

Oklahoma State 3, Oklahoma 2.

The Cowboys emerged out of Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City with a critical series-clinching victory Sunday to buoy their postseason hopes while severely damaging the Sooners’.

"Our whole season just got summarized right there in that ballgame," OU coach Sunny Golloway said. "That’s been our whole season. A break here, a break there. A play here, a play there."

When it counted, the Cowboys made the plays. The Sooners did not.

Thanks to a pair of brilliant relief outings by OSU’s Blake Barnes and OU’s Steven Okert, the game remained knotted 2-2 into the eighth inning.
