Sooners Even Series With Northeastern, And Season Record, At 2-2 With 13-4 Sunday Finale

It took Oklahoma's offense a while to come around but once it did the Sooners were explosive. After plating just 5 runs in their first two games of the weekend, OU saw 23 runners cross home plate in their last two. Sunday's finale against Northeastern was highlighted by a six-run third inning as the Sooners evened up their season record by picking up the second win.

As had been the case for the series, the Huskies took an aggressive approach towards Okahoma's pitching staff leading to a 2-0 advantage with the Sooners coming to the plate in the bottom of the first. OU scored single runs in the bottom half of the first two frames to even the score at 2-2 but then took control of the game in the third. The Sooners batted around their complete order in the frame and Cody Thomas broke the tie with an RBI single center field that put OU up for good.

Oklahoma would plate an additional five more runs through the sixth, seventh, and eighth innings and end up on the plus side of a 13-4 decision.

Weather permitting, Oklahoma will host Abilene Christian Tuesday evening.
