Big 12 Baseball Weekend Review

Most of the Big 12 has started their baseball season, exceptions being Nebraska and Kansas State which will start their seasons next weekend.

Oklahoma State won all their games, beating Lamar, McNeese State, and University of Chicago - Illinois in the Citrus Tournament at Edinburg Baseball Stadium in Edinburg, Texas.

Missouri swept Florida International in Miami to get to 3-0 for the first time since 1999.

Texas lost their series against the Long Beach State Dirtbags, losing Friday and Saturday but pulling out a 2-1 win Sunday.

Oklahoma played at the Hughes Bros. Challenge at Brooks Field in Wilmington, North Carolina. They gave up a gob of runs against South Carolina and Western Kentucky, but beating UNC-Wilmington. South Carolina went undefeated throughout the tournament.

Texas A&M and Baylor played in the Astros Minute Maid Park College Classic in Houston. Other teams participating were #1 ranked Rice, Houston, Vanderbilt, and Arizona State. Baylor lost all three of their games against Houston, Rice, and Vanderbilt. Texas A&M lost Friday to Arizona State, but came back to beat Houston and then knocked off Rice on Sunday.

Kansas won a series with South Dakota State in the Minneapolis Metrodome. The series was originally cancelled, but they found a way to play it indoors. That involved playing the games in the middle of the night. I attend Minnesota's Dairy Queen Classic tournament every year at the beginning of March, and there are always Division II and III teams who will keep playing until the wee hours of the night. It's the only way they can get their games in. Check this - the second game of the Kansas-SDSU series was suspended at 7:00 am because the field had to be cleared and prepared for other games.

Texas Tech split games with Northwestern in the Red Raider Classic, one game Saturday night being cancelled due to bad weather. Sunday had Texas Tech winning over Western Illinois. The tournament is being played through Monday.

One other series of note outside the Big 12. UCLA traveled to Miami this last weekend. Both teams are ranked in most polls with Miami in the top five. Miami swept the series.
