Cowboy Baseball Picks Up First Win Of Season

STILLWATER, Oklahoma – It might have taken them a little longer than they had hoped, but the Cowboys picked up their first win of 2012.

Oklahoma State put a mark in the win column with a 9-7 victory against Dallas Baptist on Tuesday in its home opener.

A six-run second inning proved to be the difference in the game for OSU. After trailing by one early, Zach Fish picked up the first hit of his Cowboy career, and it was a big one.

With the bases loaded, Fish sent a pitch over the center field wall for a grand slam, bringing in Wes Jones, Try Whaley and Victor Romero to make it 4-1.

A couple of base hits later in the inning brought in Gage Green and Robbie Rea to extend the lead to five.

Rea returned the favor in the eighth inning, sending a two-run homer of his own out of the park to extend the lead to 8-1.

But what should have been a commanding lead turned into barely enough in the bottom of the eighth.

The Patriots put up a pair of three-run homers to pull to within one, but that was all the scoring they could muster.

OSU added an insurance run in the ninth on an RBI single from Romero.

Chase Stevens got the win on the mound for the Cowboys, throwing seven innings and giving up just two hits and a run.

Vince Wheeland got the save for Oklahoma State while Aaron Gilbreath got the loss for DBU.

The Cowboys (1-3) will return to action on Wednesday as they host St. Gregory's in Stillwater, with first pitch set for 4 p.m.
