Stars of the Weekend

NORMAN, Okla. -- OU picked up four victories over the weekend, and Sooners Illustrated now breaks down the guys who had the best performances.

1. Senior pitcher Michael Rocha--He's been doing it all year, and yet again Rocha delivered another gem. Rocha had a perfect game heading into the sixth inning Friday night, as he retired the first 16 batters of the contest. Although that was broken up, he maintained a shutout through the eighth until he gave up a pair of runs in the ninth. Still, he was very impressive, throwing his fifth complete game of 2010, the first such Sooner to do so since Daniel McCutchen accomplished that feat back in 2006. And he was economical in doing so, posting a WHIP of less than one, as he allowed just seven base runners (all hits) and struck out three.

2. Sophomore left fielder Max White--White tied a career-high with four hits Friday evening in his 4-for-4 performance that also included a pair of RBI's and a run scored. And at one point this weekend, he recorded a hit in six straight plate appearances. Overall, he hit .636 (7-for-11) with four runs and two RBI's.

3. Senior second baseman Cale Ellis--He had a magnificent weekend at the plate as well, going 7-for-10 in three games played. Ellis also walked twice, so he had a .750 on base percentage, boosting that mark on the season to .453, which trails only Tyler Ogle and Drew Dahlberg, who are both at .455. Ellis additionally scored three runs while picking up an RBl. And he fielded his position nicely, recording seven putouts and 12 assists without committing an error.
