Pokes, Longhorns postponed

STILLWATER —  After an hour weather delay, which included a dance off — a combined Harlem Shake and tarp sliding by the Oklahoma State and Texas baseball teams — Friday’s second game of the Big 12 Conference series was postponed due to stormy weather. The game will be played as part of a doubleheader Saturday at Allie P. Reynolds Stadium.

The game was in the bottom of the second inning when lightning was observed in the area, causing the teams to clear the field. Rain followed and after an hour of rain and lightning — in which time areas of the playing field began collecting puddles of water around the tarp — the game was put on hold until Saturday.

The Cowboys were leading 3-1 at the time of the delay.

Randy McCurry got OSU on the board first with a two-out bloop single over short to plate Robbie Rea, who reached on a walk, and Zach Fish, who doubled off the left field wall, in the bottom of the first inning. The Cowboys added one more run in the bottom of the first frame when a Texas left fielder misplayed a flyball by Victory Romero that plated McCurry.

Texas cut into the lead in the top of the second inning with a lead-off home run by C.J. Hinojosa off OSU starting pitcher Mark Robinette.

The game will resume where it was delayed — in the bottom of the second inning with two outs, nobody on base and Rea at the plate — at 1 p.m. Saturday. The series finale will follow the conclusion of the postponed game.
