It was the team’s second offensive explosion in as many days, but it took on a different look than Tuesday’s four-home run game against Ohio. Nine of Oklahoma’s 13 hits on Wednesday were singles, and the team also stole five bases in the contest.
“The offense was great,” Newkirk said. “They struggled early and we were able to take advantage of that.”
That was more than Oklahoma would need, given the five errors Colorado committed and the dominant effort by Blake Brewster on the mound. Brewster, who will be a senior at Moore next year, allowed just one hit through three innings before giving way to Jake Spychalski to close out the game.
“I felt pretty good out there, like I couldn’t miss a spot,” Brewster said. “I guess it was my day.”
