The Sooners have now rattled off 11 straight, as Ralph Garza Jr. threw a complete game victory and they knocked off Oral Roberts 3-1 Tuesday evening in Tulsa.
Garza fanned 11, didn't walk a single batter and surrendered just one earned run on three hits in the contest.
"Tonight was definitely one of the [most fun] games I've had in college baseball so far and hopefully I can keep having more," Garza said. "But tonight everything felt good on the mound and I trusted my defense to make plays."
That they did, including an error free game that featured a nice double play in the second among other sparkling plays in the field.
The Sooners also got all the offense they needed, tying the game in the third on right fielder Max White's RBI double—he finished 2-for-4 with two RBI—and taking the lead on bases loaded walks from White and Oberste the following inning.
Speaking of Oberste, he officially tied the program record with a hit in his 27th consecutive game, managing that feat in the seventh inning with a single up the middle and adding another in the ninth to finish 2-for-3.
"I was trying not to think about it," Oberste said. "Once I got the hit, though, the pressure like took off because the first few at bats was tough. You know, they walked me a few times, and it was kind of nerve-racking but I got it done."
So did the rest of the team in a yet another critical midweek contest against the Golden Eagles.
They stole two games last week from their in-state foe and completed the three-game sweep with this latest triumph behind the right arm of Garza.
"We've been looking for a strong midweek guy and the way that he pitched today is really going to help us out on the weekend," Golloway said. "He doesn't understand that as a freshman, but it's just huge for us because midweek games are so important and then we've got horses to go on the weekend."
That puts them at 23-4 overall heading into this week's second conference matchup against Kansas at L. Dale Mitchell Park.
First pitch is set for 6:30 p.m. Thursday, with all the contests moved up due to Easter weekend.
