Green's Catch Helps OSU to Bedlam Win

Rider graduate Gage Green made a circus catch at the left-field wall to help Oklahoma State to a 3-2 win Sunday night over Oklahoma.

The win, in a game played in Oklahoma City, clinched the Bedlam series for OSU.

The Cowboys were leading 3-2 with one out in the top of the 9th inning when Oklahoma's Cody Reine sent one deep to left field.

But Green, in as a defensive replacement, crashed into the wall to make the catch for the second out. He also caught the next out to end the game.

It was Green's first game back after fracturing his orbital bone in a game at Texas about three weeks ago.

After the game, OSU Head Coach Frank Anderson talked about Green's brave catch.

"The thing with Gage," Anderson said, "is he's not going to stop because the wall's there...he's got two fractures in his face from two, three weeks ago, and it didn't look like he checked up at all."

His father, Rider Coach Scot Green was in attendance with his wife, and said she "had a small heart attack when he went into the wall."

Gage will need surgery after summer ball, according to his father, but said he was glad to have played a part in the team's win.
