Tuesday's #SummitBSB action was capped off with a 10-5 win for Oral Roberts over Oklahoma State in Stillwater.


Oral Roberts 10, Oklahoma State 5
DALLAS, Texas (oruathletics.com) -- The bottom of the lineup produced in a big way totaling five RBI as the Oral Roberts baseball team came through late in a 10-5 road win at rival Oklahoma State Tuesday night from Allie P. Reynolds Stadium.

From the eight spot in the order, Andrew Pace had a brilliant night totaling three doubles and added insurance runs in the eighth inning. The junior cleared the bases doubling to left center with two outs as ORU posted eight, two-out RBI. That swing pushed the Golden Eagles' margin to 8-4 before two more runs came around in the five-run frame to seal the road victory.

Noah Cummings gave ORU the lead on one swing in the fifth inning as he blasted a three-run home run off the foul pole down the left-field line putting the visitors in front 5-3. Taylor Varnell recovered from three runs in the first two innings to pick up the win by tossing four-straight shutout innings giving the offense a chance to rally.


In other Tuesday action, Omaha fell at cross-town rival Creighton by a score of 9-2. Follow #SummitBSB news, results and statistics all season long here.
