Oklahoma took the lead when Cade Harris cleared the bases with a double to give the Sooners a 3-2 lead.

Jack Flansburg followed with a single to score Harris to make it 4-2.

Two batters later, Steele Walker singled in Flansburg and it was 5-2 Sooners.

Later in the inning, Brylie Ware singled up the middle to score Walker and Renae Martinez to complete the Sooners’ big inning.
