Oklahoma's offensive performance over the weekend, in the Texas series, was dreadful. Tuesday night, at TCU, it wasn't spectacular but it was good enough.
"That was really a good college baseball game," said OU Head Coach Sunny Golloway. "There was some quality defensive plays tonight along with some great at-bats and quality pitches. Our guys really played well and proud of the way they responded after last weekend."

Oklahoma jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the first inning thanks to a Cameron Seitzer double that scored Tyler Ogle and Garrett Buechele. Pitcher Jeremy Erben had to be inserted in the first inning after Oklahoma's starter Drew Verhagen loaded the bases with no outs. Erben got the Sooners out of the jam thanks to a double play and a ground out. He remained in the game to pitch the next 7.2 innings and record his 6th win of the season. Ryan Duke came to the mound to close the game for Oklahoma and recorded his 9th save in as many tries.
The Frogs cut Oklahoma's lead to 2-1 in the second and the lead remained at 1 after the sixth when both teams swapped a run to make it 3-2. OU posted an insurance run in the ninth to get to the game's final total of 4-2.
After getting swept by the Longhorns over the weekend the Sooners reinserted themselves as one of the Big 12's top programs by picking up a road win over the 11th ranked Horned Frogs. OU currently sits in 6th place in the conference and will play host to the Missouri Tigers this weekend. The Tigers are currently tied with Oklahoma State for last in the Big 12 with a 2-4 conference record.
