The Bedlam Series may have experienced a rough start with rain rolling across the state of Oklahoma but it provided entertainment for all those in attendance. Squaring off in Oklahoma City, the Oklahoma State Cowboys looked to sweep their counter part. Earning a 9-7 win over the Oklahoma Sooners in game one Saturday, one more would secure a 3-game win streak in the rivalry.

In the top of the first inning, the Cowboys faced Kyle Tyler. Settling in, the patience of Ryan Cash earned a free base while Garrett McCain tripled behind him. With a swing of the bat, O-State quickly took a 1-0 with a runner in scoring position and no outs. Drawing two more walks alongside two runs scored, the Sooner pitcher found himself being chased from the mound in favor of Devon Perez.

While Perez slowed the Cowboys down, it was clear no one could stop them. In the fourth inning, OSU pushed the lead to 4-0 thanks to another McCain RBI. However, the Sooners cut the deficit to three in the bottom half of the inning.

Steele Walker doubled to start the offensive rotation while the defense made an error. Taking note of the mistake, the outfielder quickly moved over to third base and 90 feet from the first run of the evening for Oklahoma. Behind him, Austin O’Brien delivered a shot allowing the speedster a direct line home. Dashing toward the plate, Walker reached easily as it appeared to be the start of something good.

Unable to find much momentum, it wouldn’t be until the seventh inning that Oklahoma found a way to cross home plate once again. But, the effort proved to be too little to late. With a 4-2 lead, Oklahoma State added an final insurance run in the eighth inning to collect a season sweep of OU.
