Alcorn State (17-34) took the game’s first lead in the second on a sacrifice fly by Gabriel Lebron, but OSU quickly erased its deficit in the bottom of the inning on Gage Green’s two-out, two-RBI triple that made the score 2-1.
The Braves tied the score in the fourth. Eduardo Gonzalez led off with a single and after a foul out, back-to-back singles by Jann Butler and Angel Rosa made the score 2-2 and ended Wheeland’s day on the mound.
Once again the Cowboys answered in the bottom of the inning, getting a pair of runs on a single by Wes Jones to go up 4-2.
OSU added runs in three of the next four innings, including a four-run rally in the seventh to put the game away.
Along with Womack, Jones and Green each had multiple-RBI efforts as both players finished with two.
OSU will look for the series sweep Sunday at 1 p.m.
