Baseball: Sooners defeat Tigers, 6-5

Sooners notch win No. 20 this season against Missouri Tigers: OU faced the rain, the wind, a tornado and even a trio of late-inning errors. All will be remembered as part of a character-building, 6-5 victory over Missouri on Friday at L. Dale Mitchell Park. The victory lifted the Sooners to 20-14 overall and 5-8 in the Big 12 Conference and came in a game that started at 3:07 p.m., but didn’t end until nearly seven hours later. There was a 3-hour, 39-minute delay caused by the tornado that rolled over Norman earlier in the afternoon. “It was a long day,” said Sooner designated hitter Evan Mistich, who drove in three runs, including the game-tying run in the 10th inning. “It’s a lot better when it ends like this.” (Norman Transcript)
