It took extra innings for Oklahoma to get a runner across the plate but when they did it was an historic moment for the 2012 collegiate baseball season. With two outs in the bottom of the 10th inning, Erik Ross hit a single into right field that was deep enough to allow Evan Mistich to score from second base, giving the Sooners a 1-0 win in the first game of a double-header.

It was the first conference loss for the Bears who came into the game at 18-0 in Big XII play and carrying the nation's #2 ranking. Oklahoma starter Jordan John pitched 8.2 scoreless innings, with five strikeouts, before giving way to Steven Okert who went the rest of the way and earned the win.

With an RPI ranking in the high 60's, OU was in desperate need for a win over Baylor to keep NCAA tournament hopes alive.
