Evan Skoug Powers TCU To 11-3 Win Over Sooners In Series Opener

Rich DeCray SBN

TCU catcher Evan Skoug set the tone for his monster night in the bottom of the first inning when he powered a two-run homer over the right field fence to open up the scoring. He would return to the plate four more times on the night, producing three more hits and drawing a walk. His final stat line read four hits, two runs scored, a walk, and five runs batted in. It was a performance that was certain to doom a Sooners squad who managed just four hits as a team.

Oklahoma was able to tie the game in the top of the second on a pair of two-out RBI doubles by Steele Walker and Domenic DeRenzo but TCU regained the lead in the bottom of the third and then broke the game open by scoring six runs in the bottom of the fourth.

Oklahoma starter Ryan Madden was tabbed for the loss and dropped his season record to 1-3. He lasted just three innings and was accountable for the Horned Frogs first three runs.

Oklahoma and TCU will play a double-header on Saturday, due to the threat of inclement weather on Sunday.
