After being limited on offense in the series opener on Friday night, the Sooners exploded on Saturday to even the series at a game apiece. Oklahoma followed up their shutout performance with sixteen hits and five runs and are now in position to win a critical series in conference play after downing Kansas State 5-3.
Chris Shaw left the park in the second inning and Hunter Haley did the same in the fourth. The biggest difference between Friday and Saturday's performance though was that nine players on the roster recorded a hit, with five of them producing a multi-hit game.
From the mound Robert Tasin went six strong innings, allowing just two runs off three hits to improve his season record to 8-2. Ralph Garza Jr. retired all six batters he faced in the seventh and eighth innings and Jacob Evans closed out the ninth but not before allowing the Wildcats' third and final run.
The rubber match between the two is set for a 1:00 pm start on Sunday afternoon.
