West Virginia upsets No. 11 Oklahoma State with clutch 9th-inning double
STILLWATER, Okla. -- A two-out RBI double in the top of the ninth led West Virginia to a 5-4 victory against No. 11 Oklahoma State in the resumption of Friday’s game on Saturday morning at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium.
The game had been suspended because of lightning and rain with runners on first and second for the Mountaineers and Cramer at the plate. Cramer laced a double off the right field wall to easily score sophomore catcher Ray Guerrini for the game-winning run.
Cramer finished with two hits, two runs, one RBI, one double, one triple and one walk to lead the Mountaineers at the plate. Senior shortstop Taylor Munden and freshman second baseman Shaun Corso added two hits apiece.
West Virginia (25-23, 7-12 Big 12) finished with five runs on nine hits, while Oklahoma State (31-16, 14-8 Big 12) scored four runs on five hits. Neither team committed an error.
Sophomore righthander Chad Donato entered the game in his first relief appearance of the season and struck out the side after allowing a lead-off double to pick up his first save of the season.
The win was awarded to freshman righthander BJ Myers (3-4), who pitched 1.2 innings of one-hit shutout relief on Friday. Myers struck out two and walked two.
Freshman righthander Conner Dotson (0-4) had his best start of the season, tying a career high with seven strikeouts in 6.1 innings in the no-decision. He gave up four runs on three hits with five walks.
