Oliver and Cowboys defeat top-seeded Clemson to advance to Regional Championship

Vermilion’s Andy Oliver pitched solid and helped Oklahoma State defeat top-seeded Clemson, 3-2, Saturday night at Doug Kingsmore Stadium in Clemson, South Carolina.

The first 6 ½ innings was a pitching duel between Oliver and Clemson's Casey Harman as both southpaws kept their opponents scoreless.

Oliver took a shut out into the eighth inning, but was relieved after giving up back-to-back RBI singles as Clemson tied the game at 2. Oliver allowed just the two runs on eight hits. He also had six strikeouts and allowed only one walk. He escaped damage through the middle innings with some big pitches and Oklahoma‘s strong defense, which turned two double plays.

The third-seeded Cowboys (41-20) now head into the NCAA Clemson Regional championship round to face the winner of Sunday’s Clemson-Tennessee Tech game.
