Oklahoma finished off a four-game sweep of Buffalo, and wrapped a nineteen game home-stand with a 17-2 record, with a 5-1 win on Saturday. Sophomore pitcher Ryan Madden tossed a career-high 6.2 innings, allowing just two hits and striking out six, to improve his season record to 2-0.
He got run support from Brylie Ware who knocked in Austin O’Brien in the bottom of the second. Later on in the inning Quin Walbergh would bring in Jack Flansburg giving the Sooners all of the offense that would be necessary to pick up the win. Oklahoma added two more runs in the bottom of the sixth with a 2-RBI single from Blake Brewster.
After the Bulls plated a run in the top of the seventh, OU scored their final insurance run of the day in the bottom of the eighth.
After nineteen consecutive home games, the Sooners are off for a nine-game road trip that will see them visit Georgia Tech, Georgia State, Kennesaw State, Oklahoma State (non-conference) and Baylor.
