STILLWATER, Okla. — North Texas snapped Oklahoma State’s 12-game winning streak with a 4-3 victory Wednesday night at Cowgirl Stadium.

The Mean Green (15-12) defeated the Cowgirls for the first time since 2008. OSU leads the series 9-4.

Brittany Simmons (5-3) picked up the win. She pitched 6 2/3 innings and gave up three runs and five hits. Only one run was earned.

Madison Tierney was the first Mean Green player to reach base in the third with a bunt single, then Paige Kisling was hit by a pitch. Terry brought Tierney home with a hit into the gap in left, while Hoff hit a hard shot off the third baseman’s glove that went into the outfield, scoring Kisling.

OSU’s Tamara Brown tied the game in the fourth with a two-run homer to left field.

Terry responded with her two-run homer in the top of the fifth after Brooke Foster doubled to left.
