The No. 7 Oklahoma baseball team got back to its winning ways with 22 base hits en route to a 21-3 over St. Gregory’s on Sunday afternoon at L. Dale Mitchell Park.
The win upped OU’s overall mark to 19-6 while the Cavaliers fell to 8-25.
Sunday’s game was scheduled to make up for the contest cancelled at Missouri on Saturday due to wintry weather conditions in Columbia, Mo. The Sooners split a doubleheader on Friday at Missouri, including a 2-1 loss in 11 innings.
“We played well, it was a hard day to score runs,” said OU Head Coach Sunny Golloway said about Friday’s doubleheader at Missouri in 30-degree temperatures. “We had some reasons for wanting to play today. Burch (Smith) needed to pitch ... he needed to get his pitch count up close to 100.
“We needed to work on some things that we need to get better at fundamentally, offensively ... drag, push, sac, and get more guys in scoring position and give ourselves more opportunities to score because we have really struggled lately.”
