Aggies Complete Sweep Of Sooners

It wasn't pretty, but then again when you're getting swept it never is. For the second time since conference play began the Sooners have been swept and must once again pick themselves up and move on. The frustrating part of the weekend is that Oklahoma had leads in all three games and squandered it.

With the game tied 1-1 Oklahoma took the lead in the third inning when Max White scored on a Jack Mayfield double. Mayfield would then score himself on a trowing error to put the Sooners up 3-1.

In the "same song, different verse" fashion the Aggies would score one run in the bottom of the inning when Mikey Reynolds scored on a Tyler Naquin single. Then two innings later A&M opened the game up when Naquin knocked and Krey Bratsen crossed the plate on a Matt Juengel double. Jacob House provided the final nail in the coffin when he came home on a Troy Stein sacrifice to provide the final score of 5-3.

To put things in perspective, the Aggies are the #4 team in the nation. However, that doesn't erase the pain of continued mistakes Oklahoma makes seemingly each weekend. I said in the preview that Oklahoma's starting pitching would have to be solid and go deep into game. They did exactly that. However, I also said that they would have to get solid relief from the bullpen and run support from Oklahoma's bats. That didn't happen and neither did the halt of base running errors.

You can get away with that against Texas Tech and Kansas State but against teams like Texas and Texas A&M its a formula that will get you beat every time. The Sooners have little to regroup before #8 Arkansas comes to town on Tuesday.
