This is the second Big 12 Tournament Championship game in the past four years for the Mountaineers.
West Virginia was able to score in the third inning when Tyler Doanes was brought home with a sacrifice fly by Darius Hill. The scoring concluded in the sixth inning when Brandon White led off the inning with a single and eventually scored on a groundout.
The Big 12 Championship will be televised by AT&T Sportsnet Pittsburgh. The station formerly known as Root Sports Pittsburgh. 2 p.m. is when the game will start.
Not only are the Mountaineers playing for a Big 12 title, but there is also the dream scenario of hosting an NCAA regional. Coach Randy Mazey talks about what that would mean to the WVU baseball program.
