Oklahoma Baseball Takes Doubleheader From Austin Peay

Rich DeCray SBN

Oklahoma Baseball is continuing on it's hot streak. After winning the Bedlam series for the first time since 2010 last weekend the Sooners were off to Clarksville, Tennessee this week for a three-game series that started with a doubleheader on Thursday.

After falling behind 2-1, in the bottom of the third, of game one, the Sooners got 2 RBI from freshman Steele Walker, who also scored a run, to ignite their offense and propel them to an 11-3 win. Jake Irvin improved his season record to 6-1 after throwing six complete innings and allowing just two runs off four hits.

In the second game of the afternoon Alec Hansen bounced back from his loss in the Bedlam series to strike out ten batters and allow just a single run off three hits. Junior JB Olson came out of the bullpen to throw the final three innings and pick up his fourth save of the season. Walker was just instrumental in Oklahoma's 4-1 game two win as he was in the first game. After Austin Peay had tied the game 1-1 in the bottom of the fifth Walker blasted his second two-run home run of the day to put the Sooners up for good.

The Sooners are now 28-24-1 on the season and have won eight of the ten games they've played in the month of May. After taking the day off on Friday the Sooners will resume their series against Austin Peay on Saturday with the third and final game set to start at 11:30.
