The Oklahoma Sooners are fighting to stay alive in the Big 12 Baseball Tournament and now they’ll have to do it without another one of their stars. Already short Steele Walker, who is out with a strained abdominal muscle, OU saw center fielder Kyler Murray leave early as well.

Murray put the Sooners in front of Texas, 1-0, in the top of the first inning with a single down the left field line that scored Cade Harris. In doing so, he apparently tweaked something in right leg.
Murray went on to steal second base, after the single, but that would be the end of his day in Oklahoma City. He was noticeably limping after the play.

Murray went into Thursday’s elimination game batting .293 with 46 RBI and 10 home runs. He leads the Sooners both in RBI and home runs, and has 55 total hits on the year.
Murray is expected to be a late first or early second round draft pick in next moths MLB Draft.
