Sooner Rally Keeps Season Alive

The Oklahoma baseball team scored three runs in each of the last two innings to come from behind and beat Texas Tech 9-8 in the Big 12 Baseball Tournament at the Bricktown Ballpark on Thursday afternoon.

The Sooners eliminated the Red Raiders and kept their season alive with the win.

OU trailed 8-3 going into the bottom of the 8th inning, but got a solo home run from Kolbey Carpenter, then runs scoring on a groundout and sacrifice fly to cut the Tech lead to 8-6.

Oklahoma got three in the bottom of the 9th, with Craig Aikin driving a single to center field to score Hunter Haley to make it 8-7.

Then it was Sheldon Neuse’s turn, and the Big 12 Freshman of the Year delivered, swinging at the first pitch and lining a single to right field to score

Carpenter and Aikin to win it for the Sooners.

OU improves to 29-28 on the season, and will play the loser of the Oklahoma State-Texas game on Friday night at 7:30 in an elimination game.
