Splitting Season Openers

Steve Parker extended his current hitting streak from last season and has now hit safely in his last seven games.

STILLWATER -- No. 13 Oklahoma State came back to beat BYU Friday as the Cougars won their season baseball opener, but split the doubleheader.

OSU never led until the eighth inning when it pulled ahead to claim a 17-14 victory over BYU. The Cougars began the day with an 11-10 victory over Manhattan College.

Steve Parker homered twice for BYU, the last of which was a lead-off solo in the eighth to tie the game against the Manhattan Jaspers. Parker extended his current hitting streak from last season and has now hit safely in his last seven games.

Showing off a new strategy, the Cougars had six stolen bases against the club from New York.

BYU took the initial lead against Manhattan when catcher J.T. Musso hit a three-run homer in the third.

BYU trailed 9-3 until the five-run sixth when Alex Wolfe had a two-run single and Parker hit a three-run homer.

The Cougars tied the game nine-all in the seventh when speedy pinch-runner Stetson Banks stole second, advanced to third on a sac bunt by Musso and scored on Sean McNaughton’s single to left field.

In the nightcap against OSU, the Cougars jumped out to a 6-0 lead in the second inning with five hits. Among those hits was a two-run single by Brandon Relf and a double by Kasey Ko.

Banks hit a solo homer in the third and McNaughton had a two-run homer in the sixth to put BYU up 13-11.

But the wheels came off in the four-run eighth as OSU took the momentum.

The Cougars, now 1-1, have rematches against Manhattan on Saturday at noon (CDT), followed by a 6:30 p.m. (CDT) contest against the Cowboys.
