MANHATTAN, Kansas – – The Kansas State Wildcats clinched its first Big 12 baseball title since 1933 and the first outright championship since 1928 in a 6 to 5 win over the Oklahoma Sooners Friday night.

In the bottom of the ninth inning, a  wild pitch by Oklahoma’s Jacob Evans allowed Tanner Witt to score the winning run from third base.

The Wildcats recovered from a 4 to nothing deficit in the bottom of the sixth with runs and plated single runs in the seventh, eighth and ninth innings.

K-State becomes the second Big 12 school to claim football, men basketball and baseball conference crowns in the same school year.
