Trevor Boone hit three home runs and the Texas baseball team never really threatened Oklahoma State, falling 15-0 in Stillwater, Okla., on Thursday night.
The Longhorns only managed just one hit while Jensen Elliott (7–3) dominated on the mound. He struck out 7 and walked just two to pick up his seventh win in the complete-game shutout.
Texas starter Bryce Elder (5-5) didn’t fare as well, allowing five runs on seven hits in 6 2/3 innings. Elder struck out a career-high 10 but gave up three home runs in the loss.
Michael McCann had the only hit for Texas.
Oklahoma State started early, picking up a run in the first inning on a passed ball.
The second inning featured two homers for the home team. Boone blasted one to center field before Alix Garcia added another solo shot to right center.
Boone connected on another home run in the sixth inning, making it 4-0.
Andrew Navigato drove in another run in the seventh before the Cowboys batted around in the eighth inning and added 10 more runs.
Hueston Morrill doubled to score two runs in the inning. Two wild pitches, a passed ball and a bases-loaded walk accounted for four other runs.
Boone hit his final homer, a three-run shot, in the eighth.
After the nightmare bottom half of the eighth inning, the Longhorns went down in order in the ninth to close out the game.
The Texas baseball team will try to bounce back Friday at 6:35 p.m. in Stillwater.
