Carson Teel picked the perfect time to throw his first shutout of the season. Oklahoma State’s junior left-handed pitcher silenced Oklahoma’s offense in Friday night’s opener of the Bedlam Baseball Series.
Teel only issued one walk while holding the Sooners to just five hits, and striking out twelve, over eight innings of work. He was relieved by sophomore Peyton Battenfield who closed out the game by facing just four batters in the ninth inning.
Brandon Zaragoza and Brylie Ware collected four of Oklahoma’s five hits with the fifth coming off the bat of Steele Walker.
Things were a bit different with the guys in the Oklahoma State dugout. The Cowboys blasted Oklahoma starter Jake Irvin for five runs off seven hits. OU’s junior righty struck out 10 OSU batters but only lasted eight innings.
Things turned from bad to worse for the Sooners in the sixth inning when Ryan Madden was rung up for three runs on five hits while only lasting one third of an inning. A bright spot for Oklahoma came in the performance of Lane Ramsey who pitched the final 2.2 innings for the Sooners, not allowing any runs and giving up just one hit.
Sophomore Michael Neustifter crossed home plate twice or the Cowboys while going three of four from the plate.
