OU 10 - UNCW 5

In a search to find the right combination of players that will allow OU to score some runs head coach Sunny Galloway made some changes to today's lineup and the Sooners finally broke out the bats.

Sparked by Corey Williamson who went for a career-high four hits, including his first collegiate home run, and drove in a game-high three runs while making his first start of the season Oklahoma tallied 10 runs on 15 hits.

Stephen Porlier made his first start of the year and lasted five innings against the Seahawks, striking out five and allowing three runs on seven hits.

Joseph Hughes also received his first start in the field on Saturday.  The senior started Friday's game against South Carolina on the mound and came back Saturday to collect three hits against the Seahawks.  Junior Jarod Freeman and freshman Aaron Baker also produced a multiple-hit game.  Freeman finished 2-for-4 with an RBI and Baker extended his hitting streak to five games with a 3-for-5 performance that included two RBIs and two runs scored.

While the win was Oklahoma's most impressive of the season time will tell if it was due to the lineup changes or the fact that UNCW was winless coming into this game. The Sooners will face a little stiffer competition tomorrow morning when they play Western Kentucky in their final game of the Hughes Brothers Challenge.
