OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) — Preston Morrison threw a complete game and led TCU to a 6-2 win over West Virginia in the Big 12 tournament Thursday at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark.

Morrison, the Big 12 Pitcher of the Year, allowed two runs on seven hits, struck out six and walked just one.

Dylan Fitzgerald had two hits and Garrett Crain and Jerrick Suiter each knocked in two runs for the second-seeded Horned Frogs (40-15). TCU advanced to Saturday's action and needs one more win to reach the final.

Bobby Boyd had two hits and Billy Fleming and Ryan McBroom each knocked in a run for West Virginia (28-25). Corey Walter lasted 7 2/3 innings and gave up six runs on four hits.

West Virginia will play Baylor Friday afternoon in an elimination game.
