Oklahoma shortstop Brandon Zaragoza started the scoring in Tuesday’s game with a RBI single in the third inning. A second run scored on Zaragoza’s RBI single because of Oral Roberts right fielder Noah Cummings’ throwing error. Three innings later, OU second baseman Kyle Mendenhall drove in a run with a RBI single. Center fielder Kyler Murray finished the evening’s scoring with a two-run triple in the ninth. OU won 5-2.
Lead-off hitter Cade Harris scored twice in OU’s victory.
