While West Virginia has been bashing the ball around the yard of late, it came up with a different way to help win Sunday's game against Oklahoma -- defensive gems. Both centerfielder Bobby Boyd and rightfielder Brady Wilson made full-out diving catches to take hits (and runs) away from Sooner batters.
After the game, Boyd discussed the work that has gone into making WVU better defensively in the outfield, and touched on several factors that have played into the Mountaineers' improvement in recent weeks.
Designated hitter Matt Frazer had another productive day in front of the home crowd, churning out another double, scoring a run and reaching base twice in the win. While he wants to play well in every game, he admits that playing well in his home city is special.
Ryan McBroom capped an great series with a five-RBI day. Included in his two hits were a double and a two-run bomb into the stiff wind that blew into and across batters' faces all day. While he credited a brief drop in the wind for his homer, there's no doubt he's seeing the ball well.
McBroom described what he's been seeing at the plate, and the moment of contact when a perfect swing meets the ball, but also noted that it was hard to remember details of his game-clinching home run.
