“I felt very comfortable,” Gray said. “It’s always good when you can get a three-, four-, five-run lead. It helps out a lot.”
The Sooners’ lead went to five runs on Oberste’s two-run double in the sixth inning. By then, OU had the game and the series within hand.
Texas Tech picked up its only runs of the series thus far on RBI singles in the eighth inning by Bryant Burleson and Jake Barrios.
They began with OU getting the final three outs of the suspended game from Friday night. OU picked up an 8-0 victory in that one.
The Sooners will go for the sweep when the teams met in the series finale at 1 p.m. today. They hold a one-game lead over Kansas State in the Big 12 standings. In order to extend that lead, they have to capitalize on sweep opportunities.
“Once you get the first two, you can start thinking about a sweep,” Golloway said. “What tomorrow becomes about is the standings … For where we sit right now, this game is huge.”
It is because OU took care of business Saturday.
