Oklahoma’s baseball team earned a bit of revenge against Kansas State on Saturday to sweep pool play at the Big 12 Tournament and earn a spot in the conference championship game on Sunday at the Bricktown Ballpark, beating the Wildcats 7-6 in 11 innings.

OU needed to sweep Kansas State in the final Big 12 series of the season to win the regular season conference title, but K-State won two of three in the series to take the title. The Sooners blew a 5-1 lead in the 9th inning against the Wildcats, but got an RBI single from Matt Oberste in the top of the 10th to take a 6-5 lead. K-State tied it in the bottom of the 10th, but OU broke the tie again when Craig Aikin singled in the go-ahead run in the top of the 11th. Oklahoma relief pitcher Kyle Hayes got a strikeout with the bases loaded in the bottom of the 11th to get the win.
