Sooners Big 12 lead down to just one game after 9-3 loss to West Virginia

CHARLESTON, W.V. —  Oklahoma still leads the Big 12 Conference, but the lead is down to one game after Saturday’s 9-3 loss to West Virginia Saturday at Power Park.

The loss dropped the Sooners to 34-13 and 11-6 in the conference. The Mountaineers (28-20, 10-7 Big 12) joins Kansas State just one game behind OU in the standings.

The Sooners, who claimed the series opener, led 2-1 after five inning.

Anthony Hermelyn blooped in a single to score Jack Mayfield in the fourth inning and Garrett Carey scored on an error to give OU the lead.

However, West Virginia for three runs in the sixth inning with Ryan Tuntland’s two-run homer give it the lead for good.

OU answered with a run in the seventh inning on Matt Oberste’s RBI single, but the game blew open in the bottom of the eighth inning.

Ralph Garza Jr. retired two to start the eighth inning, but the Mountaineers finished scoring five runs from six hits, including a two-run home run from Ryan McBroom.

Jake Fisher (1-2) took the loss. He gave up four runs on six hits over 5 2-3 innings. Only one of the runs he allowed was earned.

Dan Dierdorff (4-5) picked up the win. He scattered seven hits over 6 2-3 innings. He allowed three runs, while striking out eight.

The teams return to Power Park at noon today for the rubber game of the series.
