AUSTIN (KXAN)–The Longhorns fought hard, but their efforts were not enough as they lost the series finale to Oklahoma State 11-10 Saturday.
Texas was down 9-5 in the seventh inning, but rallied to tie the game thanks to a Tate Shaw home run and RBI’s from Duke Ellis, and Eric Kennedy.
The Longhorns had a 10-9 lead in the ninth inning until a wild pitch tied the game, and then an RBI single from Andrew Navigato gave Oklahoma State the win.
Texas (24-18) drops to 5-9 in Big 12 play after being swept by the Cowboys on the road.
The Longhorns will travel to San Marcos on Tuesday to face Texas State at 6:30 p.m. Texas isn’t doing anything particularly well right now. After offensive issues in last week’s series loss to Kansas State, the Longhorns couldn’t find consistent pitching from the staff in Stillwater, falling to 2-5 in their last seven games.
