2013 Big 12 Baseball Tournament | Sooners Advance To Title Game With Extra Inning Win Over K-State

After blowing a four run lead in the bottom of the ninth, it looked like Oklahoma was destined to miss their second consecutive Big 12 baseball tournament championship game. When they blew another lead in the tenth it seemed even more certain. However despite all of their efforts to blow it, somehow the Sooners fought back each time and finally took a lead in the eleventh inning that they would not relinquish.

Jake Fisher started the game for Oklahoma but only lasted three and a third before getting pulled with the bases loaded. Kindle Ladd would come on in relief and pitch very well, getting out of said bases loaded situation as well another five innings worth of work.

A Garrett Carey bases loaded double in the fourth plated three and put the Sooners up 4-0. They would add what at the time seemed like an insurance run in the fifth and to the ninth we went. That's when things fell apart for the normally reliable Jake Evans who would allow the game tying runs (though two were charged to Ladd) and send the game into extra innings.

Ralph Garza Jr. would come in after Evans and blow his own chance for a win when he allowed a game tying run to score in the tenth. Finally, it was Kyle Hayes who proved capable of getting the final necessary out and send the Sooners on to tomorrow's championship game.
