The Oklahoma Sooners started the 2015 college baseball season with a 6-1 win over Notre Dame on Friday night. As you can imagine afterwards the players and coaches were elated to see the season start out with a big win. We were able to catch up with Craig Aikin, Coach Pete Hughes, winning pitcher Jake Elliott and newcomer Alex Wise to hear what they had to say about the win.

Aikin knocked in two RBI for the Sooners while Elliott picked up the win after pitching seven strong innings of scoreless ball. The story of the night may have been Alex Wise who went 3-for-5 from the plate, and scored twice, as Oklahoma's new lead off batter.
The Sooners are back in action again on Saturday to face Southern Illinois-Edwardsville at 1:00 (CST) and then their second game against Notre Dame with a first pitch scheduled around 5:00 PM.
