    TCU Baseball lost games two and three of their weekend series with the No. 24 Oklahoma State Cowboys this weekend, dropping their record to 2-4 in conference play and 15-12 overall.

    On Saturday, Oklahoma State got revenge for a Friday night loss in walk-off fashion, picking up a 2-1 win.

    The teams were tied heading into the bottom of the ninth, but sophomore left-hander Alex Young gave up two free bases by way of a walk and hit batter.

    Cowboy’s infielder Tim Arakawa was able to connect for a single into center field to drive in the winning run and hand TCU the loss.

    The Frogs continued to struggle with runners on base, leaving 11 men on the bags through the game.

    Junior Preston Morrison started the game for the Frogs, giving up just one run on seven hits and no walks through five and two-thirds innings of work.

    TCU scored its lone run of the game in the second inning, off a Connor Castellano line drive single into center field, scoring Derek Odell.

    The Frogs returned to the diamond Sunday afternoon in hopes of taking the rubber match before heading home.

    The Cowboys won the game by the final score of 9-4.

    TCU took yet another early lead, plating two runs in the first inning off a pair two-out singles from Jerrick Suiter and Dylan Delso. However, Oklahoma State responded with three runs of their own in the third inning to take the lead.

    Suiter delivered again for TCU in the next inning; pushing two more runs in with double to right center. However, that would be the end of TCU’s scoring.

    The Cowboys responded with two runs of their own in the bottom the frame, re-taking the lead, and chasing TCU starter Tyler Alexander from the game.

    Oklahoma State used a steady offensive attack and a two-run home run off the bat of Zac Fish to score four more unanswered runs by the time the game was over.

    The Frogs finish up their four game road trip on Tuesday when they face University of Texas at Arlington at Clay Gould Ballpark. First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m.
