Fry allowed a two-out triple and single in the ninth that tied the game 2-2. OSU failed to score in their half of the ninth -- and then K-State pushed across four runs in the tenth inning.
"Wow" doesn't quite cover it.
The bottom line is that OSU now needs to win the next two games on Sunday and Monday to take the best of three and advance from the Super Regional and on into Omaha for the College World Series.
And buck up OSU fans, the next K-State pitchers expected to start, the best two on the season beyond the one who started Saturday, are both redshirt freshmen and with ERAs of 4-plus.
But yeah, we know.
Oh what an opportunity wasted on Saturday.
K-STATE SCORED five runs in the last two innings in the 6-2 win.
Michael Conforto hit a monster two-run jack in the fourth to give the Beavers a 2-0 lead but that was all the Beavs could muster.
The Wildcats scored the game's last six runs for the win. After the triple, Tanner Witt tied the game on a single up the middle in the ninth on an 0-1 pitch with two outs.
The single forced extra innings where Kansas State scored four runs in the 10th for the come-from-behind win -- a regular occurrence this season for the gutty K-State squad.
Fry took the loss for the Beavers after allowing four hits and three runs in 1 2/3 innings. The lefty dropped to 0-1 this season. To be fair, Fry was nails in the eighth, coming in with the bases loaded and shutting the door. And he got the first two outs in the ninth -- it looked for all the world like he would nail it down.
But that's baseball.
Joe Flattery started for Kansas State and was impressive -- he allowed four hits and two runs in five innings of work. The lefty struck out three and walked two before being replaced by right-hander Nate Williams.
Oregon State (48-11) starter Matt Boyd threw 123 pitches in seven innings. He scattered five hits and allowed but a single run while walking two and striking out three. But the Beavs couldn't break through at the plate against what was thought to be a so-so K-State pitching staff.
On Saturday at least, all evidence to the contrary.
The Corvallis Super Regional continues on Sunday at 7:05 p.m. PT. The game will air live on ESPNU and with an online stream available by visiting ESPN3.com.
And it's win or go home time for Oregon State.
Final out eludes, OSU must win next two games
