Dane Mason pitched seven strong innings and Oklahoma State took advantage of six TCU miscues to defeat the Horned Frogs 7-5 and avenge an earlier loss in front of 853 fans at Reynolds Stadium this afternoon.
Clint Mokry was the victim of bad defense and suffered the loss to fall to
Chris Neuman was the offensive star for the Horned Frogs with a double and
a homerun and four RBIs in a losing effort.
TCU got on the board first in the first inning. Neuman doubled in Shelby
Ford to make it 1-0. The Frogs threatened to make it worse in the second
after they loaded the bases on errors by first baseman Ty Wright and third
baseman Josh Fields. Dane Mason got the next two hitters to pop up to
field to escape the inning.
The Cowboys evened the score at one in the bottom of the second on an RBI
single by Chris Gutierrez.
The Horned Frogs broke the tie in the fifth on an RBI single by Neuman
that scored German Duran.
The Pokes scored five runs in the bottom half of the inning by taking
advantage of TCU's inability to field a bunt. The Horned Frogs committed
three errors after Justin Vinyard led off the inning with a perfectly
executed bunt single towards the first baseman. Keanon Simon and Wright
had RBIs in the inning.
Neuman cut the OSU lead in half with a two-run homerun over the right
field fence that knocked Mason out of the game.
The Cowboys added an insurance run in the eighth when pinch runner Rusty
Ryal scored on a passed ball.
The Horned Frogs made it interesting in the ninth. Chad Huffman added an
RBI single to score Ramon Moses. Coach Anderson brought in lefty Brett
McDonald to face Neuman, who flied out to deep center to end the game.
