Frank Anderson Picks Up 300th Win As Cowboys Roll
STILLWATER, Oklahoma – Friday's game might have been just another one for OSU as a whole, but it was a special one for coach Frank Anderson.
Anderson reached a milestone with a 7-2 victory over Bowling Green State, picking up his 300th career victory as the Cowboys' coach.
He joins the ranks as only the third coach in Oklahoma State history to reach the mark, along with Gary Ward (953 wins) and Toby Greene (318).
But perhaps more importantly, the Cowboys evened their overall record back up at 3-3 after dropping their first three games of the season.
Pitcher Andrew Heaney had a lot to do with the win, racking up a career-high 12 strikeouts and allowing just one run in 7.1 innings. His 12 strikeouts are the most by a Big 12 pitcher this season and he leads the league with 22 on the year.
Despite his big day, the Falcons actually took advantage of a slow start from Heaney to go up 1-0 in the second.
But it didn't take long for the Cowboys to respond, batting around in the bottom of the same inning and picking up four runs.
Zach Fish added his second home run of the season and OSU added two more runs in their final inning of the game.
OSU and BGSU will meet up again on Saturday at 3 p.m. to continue the series.
