The Sooners resumed play Saturday and quickly put away Texas Tech in the ninth inning to capture an 8-0 series opening victory at L. Dale Mitchell Park.
A strong outing by starter Jake Fisher, standing into the rotation due to a mixup because of a injury to normal Saturday starter Dillon Overton, and a continued offensive outburst picking up right where it left off last weekend allowed the Sooners to build the big lead Friday evening before the game was suspended.
Fisher tossed 7 1/3 scoreless innings with 10 strikeouts to no walks and just seven hits to earn his first victory of the year.
Meanwhile, OU roughed up Tech starter Jonny Drozd (3-5) for five earned runs on 10 hits and a walk in four innings.
Shortstop Jack Mayfield, who has excelled out of the nine hole since head coach Sunny Golloway shook up the lineup and moved him out of the leadoff spot, later blasted a three-run homer in the fourth.
It was 5-0 at that point.
Not long after, though, the weather set in and play was suspended due to lightning with OU needing just three outs to claim the series opening victory.
