Baseball: Sooners Even Series Against Samford

Sooners beat Samford 6-2 to even series: Oklahoma is so familiar with playing must-win games the pressure seems to bring comfort. It was the case Friday night with the Sooners’ 6-2 victory over Samford at L. Dale Mitchell Park.

The victory snapped the Sooners’ two-game losing streak and evened the series they believe they have to win to bolster their NCAA Tournament chances.

“We dig ourselves our own holes,” said OU rightfielder Cody Reine. “We had the same opportunities last night. We didn’t execute. Tonight we did. When we execute, we’re going to win a lot of the time.”

Execution was the difference between Friday’s victory and Thursday’s 4-2 loss to the Bulldogs. The Sooners (34-21) had nine hits — three less than the series opener. Three of those hits came with runners in scoring position, and all drove in runs. (More Norman Transcript)
