The Oklahoma Sooners needs wins and they need them bad. You have to go back six games to find OU's last win, and then back to the first of the month to find their last winning week (Sooners were 3-1 April 1-5). With their post-season eligibility hanging in the balance, Oklahoma must string together a series of wins and it has to start tonight.

Standing in the way of OU notching a mark in the win column are the Dallas Baptist Patriots who travel to Norman with a 13-9 record on the road this season. DBU has a collective batting average of .260 on the year and are led by Mike Wesolowski (.308) and Drew Turbin (.301) as the only two batting .300 or better.

Wesolowski has belted four home runs this season and has knocked in 26 RBI. From top to bottom, the entire DBU lineup is dangerous. Nine Patriot batters have combined to hit 30 homers, led by Austin Listi's team-high of six.

Facing them from the mound will be Oklahoma's Kindle Ladd who will be looking for his fourth win of the season. Ladd has made twenty-two appearances this year and has fanned a total of 29 batters. He'll be countered by DBU's Joseph Shaw who has struck out 29 batters in his nineteen appearances this season.

The Sooners are still led in batting by Mac James (.362/34 RBI) who is joined by Hunter Haley as the only two OU batters above .300 on the year. Haley has gone yard a team-high six times this season and Oklahoma has collectively banged out 24 home runs.
