OSU 11, Texas 10

Oklahoma State’s Andrew Navigato singled in Hueston Morrill in the bottom of the ninth inning Saturday for the winning run in a wild game at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium in Stillwater.

The Cowboys scored six runs in the sixth inning to take a 9-5 lead at one point, then the No. 19 Longhorns tied the game with four in the seventh and went ahead ahead 10-9 on Austin Todd’s sacrifice fly in the top of the ninth.

A single, two walks and a wild pitch led to the tying run for OSU, and after another walk to load the bases, Navigato delivered the game-winner — a deep fly ball over the center fielder’s head.

Navigato finished the game 3-for-4 with three RBIs. Carson McCusker also drove in three for OSU. Colin Simpson was 2-for-2 with two RBIs.

Logan Gragg (2-3), the last of five OSU pitchers, allowed one run on four hits in 2⅔ innings for the win.

The Cowboys remain home to face Oral Roberts at 6 p.m. Tuesday before heading to Lubbock, Texas, for a weekend Big 12 series with Texas Tech.

OU 2, Minnesota 1

The Sooners evened the series with the Golden Gophers at Target Field in Minneapolis.

Starter Nathan Wiles and three relievers combined to give up one run on three hits. Wiles (6-2) allowed the run and all three hits over 6⅓ innings. He struck out six and walked three. Wyatt Olds, Ledgend Smith and Jason Ruffcorn covered the final 2⅔ innings, with Ruffcorn getting the final five outs for his ninth save.

Tyler Hardman drove in both runs for the Sooners (26-14). He drew a bases-loaded walk in the third inning and had an RBI double in the fifth to make it 2-0. Minnesota (17-19) got its only run on a solo home run by Easton Bertrand in the fifth.

The teams close out the series at 11 a.m. Sunday.

ORU 11-6, NDSU 5-7

The Golden Eagles scored eight runs in the top of the ninth inning to complete a wild comeback in the opener of a Summit League doubleheader in Fargo, North Dakota.

ORU (19-18, 10-8) trailed 5-3 with one out in the ninth before four hits and six walks sparked the Golden Eagles to an 11-5 win. Spencer Henson hit two solo home runs for ORU, and Hunter Wilson and Anthony Martinez also drove in two runs each.

In the nightcap, North Dakota State (10-19, 8-10) scored in the bottom of the ninth to win 7-6 and salvage a split.

ORU’s Brody Gibson was 2-for-4 with three RBIs.
