The Sooners secured consecutive wins over their in-state rival Oral Roberts Wednesday night with a 15-8 victory behind an impressive 14 hits. It marks the fourth straight game in which Oklahoma has put up at least 10 hits or more as a team. With the win, Oklahoma extended their current winning streak out to seven games.
Matt Oberste continues his ridiculous hot streak going 3-for-4 in the game with a double, four RBI, and his team leading seventh home run of the season. Dating back to last season, his current hit streak now stands at 26 consecutive games.
Joining Oberste in the hit parade were teammates Jack Mayfield (2-4, two runs, his third home run on the season, and three RBI) and Hector Lorenzana (3-5, three RBI).
Kyle Hayes made his first start of the season for the Sooners and lasted four innings, but allowed seven runs however only three of those were earned. Billy Waltrip came on in relief and while not pitching particularly well, he did enough in his one inning of work to earn the victory. Ralph Garza, Jr. would come on for the final four innings and was easily the most effective pitcher for OU on the night allowing just three hits and one run.
The Sooners return to action this weekend with their Big 12 opener against TCU with the series scheduled to kick off on Friday at 2 p.m. (CST).
