Sooners Take Series from Aggies

Oklahoma’s baseball team beat Texas A&M on Sunday afternoon to take the series 2-1. After combining for just eight hits in games one and two the Sooner bats came alive in game three. OU scored 6 runs off 12 hits to win Sunday’s rubber match 6-3.

After losing game one 3-1 Friday night the Sooners won a pitchers duel 1-0 on Saturday. The Sooner offense, sparked by Ryan Rohlinger’s fifth inning two-run home run, got behind an 8 2/3 inning performance by pitcher P.J. Sandoval. Sandoval struck out four and allowed three earned runs off five hits and one walk.

“We came out today, built off last night’s momentum and played a great game,” said OU head coach Sunny Golloway. “Ryan (Rohlinger) really opened things up for our offense in the fifth inning and we got another great outing from our starter. We really feel good about our weekend rotation and we will continue to rest them and get them ready for next weekend.
