Sooners Losing Streak Continues With 9-1 Home Loss

The spring can be brutal in Oklahoma. With temperatures taking drastic changes, rain, hail, thunderstorms, and other types of sever weather can pop up on any given day. Much like the Oklahoma weather, the OU baseball team has been unpredictable in the month of April, and recently they've been downright brutal.

The Sooners' latest setback came at the hands of Dallas Baptist on Tuesday night when they fell by a score of 9-1. It what could be described as a broken record, or a scene from the movie Groundhog Day, Oklahoma was plagued by inconsistent pitching, inconsistent hitting, and errors in the field.

Dallas Baptist starter Joseph Shaw went six full innings and allowed just one hit. He only struck out three Oklahoma batters but still managed to keep eighteen of the nineteen batters he faced from safely reaching base. The Sooners only managed three hits on the night with Mac James being responsible for two of them. Colt Bickerstaff had the other hit, and the only Oklahoma RBI on the night, with a single in the bottom of the eighth that scored James.

Meanwhile, OU starter Kindle Ladd only lasted three innings against a dangerous DBU lineup. The Patriots knocked him around for four of their nine runs. DBU center fielder Austin Listi went 4-for-5 from the batter's box on the night and crossed home plate four times. Only three other DBU batters recorded recorded hits on the night but it was more than enough offense needed to overpower the anemic Oklahoma attack.

The Sooners will limp into their final home stand of the season having lost six in a row now and eleven of their last thirteen.
