Six Run Second Inning Helps Oklahoma Improve To 14-0

Dillon Overton is on the verge of becoming a freshman phenom. On Sunday afternoon he pitched five innings, giving up two runs and striking out four batters to improve his record to 3-0. However, it was a strong offensive performance in the second inning that turned Overton's day around. 

San Diego State jumped out to a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first to put Overton's victory in jeopardy. Oklahoma took control if the game in the top of the second inning  with an offensive explosion. Cameron Seitzer led off the inning with a double to right field. Two batters later Casey Johnson doubled to left field to score Seitzer. Chris Ellison and Cale Ellis then hit back-to-back singles, scoring Johnson. Then Max White hit a three-run homerun to put Oklahoma up for good. 

When the inning was over, Oklahoma had scored six runs on seven hits and the Sooners were on their way to a record-breaking 14th win. OU would add seven more runs throughout the afternoon and record a total of 20 hits in what was their best offensive showing of the USD Tournament. 

At 14-0 the Sooners are now the only undefeated Division I baseball program and have a legitimate claim to be the #1 team in the nation.
