Sooners Pound Aggies 9-0 Win Final Conference Series

J.T. Wise got the Sooners on the board in the first inning by knocking in Bryant Hernandez and Oklahoma never looked back on their way to a 9-0 win over Texas A&M on Saturday night. The win secured a series victory for OU and put them in sole possession of second place in the Big 12 Conference.

 

After knocking in Hernandez in the first, Wise drove in Matt Harughty in the third to put the Sooners up 2-0. Then, in the fourth, Trey Sperring drove in Casey Johnson to extend the lead to 3-0. Casey Johnson then drove in two runs in the fifth while Michael Rocha struck out two Aggie batters and the rout was on.

 

Leading 5-0, Oklahoma really broke it open in the sixth with four runs scored thanks in part to a 2 run double by Aaron Baker.

 

The Sooners haven’t been able to sweep a Big 12 opponent yet and Sunday afternoon’s game against A&M will provide them one last opportunity to do so. A second place finish in the conference is a bit disappointing considering that the Sooners once had a grasp on first place but when you take into account that most preseason publications had Oklahoma finishing around 8th then it really isn’t too shabby.
