Sooners stick to script in Norman regional - 2nd game ends 7-6 in 10 innings

The baseball team seemed to like their 7-6 extra inning victory over Oral Roberts on Friday so much that they decided to do the exact same thing today against North Carolina.  After leading the whole game, the Sooners bullpen gave up three runs in the bottom of the 9th (yes, North Carolina was the home team - the regionals are viewed as a neutral site, so teams alternate home / visitor).  The 9th inning ended with a strikeout with a UNC baserunner at third.  

The Sooners quickly ended the suspense though in the top of the 10th by driving in a single run, even though they had multiple baserunners.  UNC was not able to respond and are now paired up against Oral Roberts in the early game tomorrow with the winner of that game facing the Sooners.  If we win, we move on to the Super Regional - if we lose, then we get another shot in a game on Monday.
