Baseball: Sooners Ranked in Top 10

Following a weekend series win to maintain its lead in the Big 12 standings, the Oklahoma Sooners returned to the top 10 in national rankings Monday.

Oklahoma (33-11, 10-5 Big 12) is ranked No. 10 in Collegiate Baseball News' poll, rejoining the benchmark spot after taking two of three games from Texas Tech with 8-0 and 6-2 wins Friday and Saturday, respectively.

The Sooners are also No. 12 in Baseball America's rankings and rose to No. 13 in the USA Today Division I Coaches Poll.

OU is 5-1 since head coach Sunny Golloway shuffled his batting order, notably moving former clean-up hitter Matt Oberste to leadoff.

The Sooners have batted .398 since the change with Oberste's .538 batting average and .600 on-base percentage leading the team. The junior ranks fifth nationally with a season batting average of .472 and is seventh with 73 hits.
