Sooners slip past Frogs in 12th



“If you keep putting pressure on your opponent, at some point good things are going to happen,” Golloway said. “We had men in scoring position throughout the extra innings. If you are in the dugout on the other side, you are feeling the pressure of the offense coming at you. I’ve always said, your best defense is a good offense.”

Despite having only one hit, Oberste, who finished 1-for-5 with an RBI, was happy to help the Sooners get the win and is thankful he had the extra opportunities to keep his hitting streak going. He is now tied with Marty Neff, who set the mark in 1991.

“It’s so special,” Oberste said. “It even gets the team excited. I am thankful the baseball gods blessed me with another two at bats.”

White went 3 for 5 with one run scored to lead the Sooners at the plate.

Ethan Carnes picked up the win in relief, but it was Jonathan Gray who carried the Sooners. Despite getting a no decision, he went 9 innings, allowed 1 earned run, fanned 12 batters and gave up three hits. With several pro scouts and general managers on hand, he put on a show.

“Gray speaks volumes,” Golloway said. “If I’m a GM of a major league baseball team, and I saw Jonathan Gray throw, I’d race home and try to figure out where our pick is and what we can do. Because that is a big league arm.”

Oklahoma got on the scoreboard first in the bottom of the second when freshman Hunter Haley smashed a bases-loaded single to right knocking in Kaleb Carpenter.

Gray had no-hitter through five innings. It was broken up by Cody Jones in the sixth inning with a bloop single to centerfield. Two batters later, Jones tied the game on a sacrifice fly.
