Oklahoma Sooners

Sooners Score Wild 16-10 Win Over Buffalo

M. Hofeld


The first inning was crazy on Thursday night but the middle three innings were just insane as Oklahoma opened its four game series with Buffalo with a 16-10 win. After surrendering a run in the top of the opening frame, the Sooners posted ten runs on ten hits and were on pace for a 90 run game.

Four more spots in the bottom of the second had OU rolling 15-1 and sparked investigations into the record books, but Buffalo wasn’t quite ready to throw in the towel. Two runs in the top of the fourth gave Buffalo a glimmer of hope. Two more in the fifth swung momentum towards their dugout, and a five-run sixth put the Sooners on edge with their lead being trimmed to 15-10.

An RBI single from Blake Brewster in the bottom of the seventh scored Cade Harris, and stopped the bleeding a bit, to provide the final score of 16-10. Brylie Ware and Kyle Mendenhall each recorded a team-high three hits on the night for the Sooners. Ware was a perfect 3-for-3 from the plate with 3 RBI and a run scored. Despite being responsible for five of Buffalo’s ten runs, Jake Irvin improved his season record to 4-0. Only two of the five runs were earned and Irvin struck out five batters in his five-inning performance.
