Oklahoma Dominates Mississippi State in Regional Opener 20-10

The Oklahoma Sooners (37-23) let loose a scoring run to rival their football program when they defeated SEC foe Mississippi State 20-10 Friday.

Eight Bulldog pitchers gave up 22 hits in a game that lasted 4 hours and 42 minutes. The offense of the Sooners was proven more impressive considering Oklahoma was without Steele Walker and Kyler Murray who were sidelined with injury. Today matched the Sooner’s season-high hit total.

While the score suggests an OU domination, the Sooners had to fight late to earn that description.

Oklahoma led 5-0 quickly out of the gate thanks to some savvy pitching from Jake Irvin. Mississippi State rebounded and eventually took the lead 8-5 heading into the seventh inning. From there, the flood gates opened.

Nine runs in the seventh ultimate became the difference for Oklahoma. The Bulldogs pitching failed them by allowing 10 walks — four of which happened in the seventh — as well as eight Sooners who hit multiple RBI’s.

Oklahoma now waits a winner’s bracket game against the victor of the Florida State/Samford game at 4 p.m on Saturday.
