#NR (Coaches Poll)


- The No. 14 Sooners (32-12) host Arkansas-Little Rock (22-21) on Tuesday as first pitch is slated for 7 p.m. at L. Dale Mitchell Park. OU and UALR are meeting for the second consecutive season and 21st time in the all-time series. Tuesday is "Fan Appreciation Day" at L. Dale Mitchell Park and admission is free.

- A winner in five of the last six outings, OU is ranked as high as No. 14 this week by the NCBWA poll (No. 17 - USA Today/ESPN Coaches', No. 17-Collegiate Baseball and No. 18-Baseball America). After 44 games, OU has one game behind the pace set last season after 44 games. The 2009 squad finished with a 43-20 overall record, including a No. 7 national seed in the NCAA Tournament.

- Arkansas-Little Rock returns 11 letterwinners from the 2009 club that was 16-34 overall and 7-21 in the Sun Belt Conference (11th). The Trojans are 2-8 in their last 10 games after splitting a pair of games last week at home against Stephen F. Austin (L, 3-2) and New Orleans (W, 4-3). UALR was scheduled to play two more games against New Orleans but was rained out over the weekend.
The Trojans have faced one other Big 12 school on the season and dropped a 9-8 decision on March 30 at Kansas. They have faced one ranked team on the season and topped then-No. 15 Ole Miss in Oxford, Miss., on April 7.
