TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Max Brown had four hits and sixth-seeded Kansas State beat third-seeded Oklahoma 7-3 on Wednesday night in their opening game in the Big 12 tournament.

Brown had a leadoff double and scored during a two-run second inning that gave the Wildcats (27-28) a 3-0 lead. They added two more runs in the third to make it 5-0.

After Oklahoma (32-26) cut it to 5-2 on homers from Taylor Alspaugh and Anthony Hermelyn in the sixth inning off starter Colton Kalmus (2-4), Brown had a two-out, bases-loaded single to plate a pair of runs in the seventh.

Kalmus allowed six hits and struck out six in 5 1-3 innings. Jordan Floyd worked the final 3 2-3 innings, allowing four hits and one run, for his first save of the season.

Sooners starter Jake Elliott (4-6) lasted just two innings, giving up four hits and two earned runs. Three Oklahoma fielding miscues led to four unearned runs for K-State.

Alspaugh had an RBI single in the seventh and finished with three hits.

K-State will play the Oklahoma State, a 3-0 winner over West Virginia, on Thursday night.

Oklahoma will meet West Virginia in an elimination game.
