Sooners Take First Game Of Bedlam Series


This week marked the 20th anniversary of the Bedlam Brawl and the Sooners were trying to do something that they haven’t been able to in the past eight years. Oklahoma State has owned OU in Tulsa the last eight seasons and early on it appeared as if the trend would continue. Tyrone Hambly homered in the first inning off of Stephen Porlier to give the Cowboys a two run lead. However, that would be all the offense that O-State would be able to muster for the evening as Porlier, Michael Rocha and Ryan Duke would combine to keep OSU scoreless through the next eight innings.

 

Oklahoma was held at bay themselves until the 4th inning when Bryant Hernandez went yard off of Andrew Oliver to cut the lead in half. Then in the 6th inning J.T. Wise hit a two run dinger to put OU up for good and then the Sooners tacked on two more insurance runs in the 9th to get to the final score of 5-2.

 

I think that the best description of Oklahoma coming into this series is that they were slumping. The Sooners lost two of three to Kansas last weekend and then went down to UT Arlington in one of their mid-week games. Going back to the Arkansas game on the 28th of April, Oklahoma had lost four of their seven games going into the Bedlam Series. All of that makes this a must win series for the Sooners who are still fighting to build momentum heading into the post season.
