Oklahoma closes Heartland Classic by shutting out Team Georgia



“It’s just fun out there,” he said after Oklahoma ended the tournament with a 6-2 record. “I felt really good out there, and felt comfortable with all my pitches. We would have liked to play for first place, but it was great to get one more game with these guys.”

While Tyler was cruising on the mound, the offense took off in the fourth inning. Helped by a pair of Georgia errors, Oklahoma’s Trevor McCutchin put his team on the board with a two-RBI single to right field. DeShawn Lookout and Blake Brewster added RBIs in the inning and Oklahoma scored another on an error to take a 5-0 lead into the sixth, where they added an insurance run on a double steal.

“It was a great experience, and I wish my entire team could have been here to see how these guys bounced back this week,” Newkirk said. “I want to thank the Heartland Classic for giving us an opportunity to be a part of it.”
