It was a bad night of baseball for the Sooners on Wednesday. Just a day after recording their first win over a ranked opponent this season, Oklahoma was taken to the woodshed in an 11-2 loss to Arkansas-Little Rock. It was the worst home loss for Oklahoma Baseball since 2009 when they lost to Arkansas twice as the regional hosts. The Sooners fell 17-6, to the Razorbacks, on May 30th and then 11-0 on the 31st.
There's not a whole lot that you can take from this game and move forward with, but there is a whole lot that you'd want to forget. UALR posted five runs in the top of the third inning, to take control of the game, and then two more in the fifth before closing out their scoring by putting up four runs in the sixth. They recorded thirteen hits off Oklahoma pitchers.
Meanwhile Arkansas-Little Rock starter Chad Bradford was superb against what has been an explosive Oklahoma line up. He threw 6.2 innings and only gave up the two runs off four hits.
"Sometimes you win, sometimes you lose, sometimes you get your butt handed to you, you know, and that's what happened tonight," Oklahoma head coach Pete Hughes said after the game.
Now the Sooners have to regroup before taking on Kansas State this weekend in their first Big XII series of the year.
