TULSA, Okla. (AP) – Michael Freeman threw a six-hitter and Donnie Walton had three hits and knocked in three runs as Oklahoma State cruised past Kansas State 10-1 on Thursday night in a winners’ bracket pool play game in the Big 12 Tournament.

Freeman (10-2), the conference’s pitcher of the year, recorded 15 groundball outs and struck out seven. Kansas State scored a run against him in the sixth on three singles, but the left-hander got out of a bases-loaded jam with a double-play grounder.

Walton had a two-run single off Wildcats starter Nate Griep (6-3) in a three-run second inning to help No. 2 seed Oklahoma State (36-17) take a 5-0 lead. He later added an RBI double in the fourth to make it a six-run advantage.

Sixth-seeded Kansas State (27-29) will play Oklahoma (33-26) in an elimination game Friday. Oklahoma State will meet the winner of that game on Saturday.
