Open Game Thread: K-State vs. Oklahoma, Game 1

Austin Fisher and the Batcats look to seal the deal tonight against the Sooners. - Scott Weaver / K-State Athletics Communications

It all comes down to this now. K-State has three shots to win the Big 12 baseball title, but getting it done tonight would be a relief.

Who: K-State vs. Oklahoma

What: Big 12 Baseball

When: May 17, 2013 | 6:30 p.m. CDT

Where: Manhattan | Tointon Family Stadium (2,331)

Media: 1350 KMAN/K-State Sports Network | Kansas 22 (Cox only) / MetroSports (KC area)

Here we go, Catbackers. We're one win away from glory. Alas, most of us outside the KC Metro won't get to watch the 'Cats clinch the title (assuming they do so tonight), although tomorrow's game will be on Fox College Sports -- so at the very least, we'll at least be able to bask in the glow.

All seats for the game are sold out, with standing-room tickets the only remaining available entry into Tointon. It's going to be a wild weekend no matter what; we'll just have to hope that Saturday and Sunday are coronation celebrations rather than a continued effort to urge the team on to a necessary victory. The Cats will send freshman Levi MaHorvis (5-0, 2.91) onto the hill tonight, but the Batcats won't have an easy task ahead of them when it's their turn to hit. The Sooners are expected to start Jonathan Gray (8-2, 1.43, and an insane 19:112 BB:K ratio). Gray's a candidate for the Golden Spikes Award, and has been projected as high as #2 in the upcoming MLB draft, so the Cats are going to have to get past a real star if they want to secure the conference title tonight.
