Oklahoma baseball is on the road for its second consecutive tournament as it heads to the Kansas City Royals’ spring training facility for a four-game weekend at the ASU Tournament hosted by Arizona State. Game one of the tournament is Thursday at 5:00 pm against Manhattan.

The Sooners went 1-2 at the UCF Tournament last weekend and heads to Arizona at 5-3 on the season. As a team, Oklahoma’s average dropped to .292. Junior catcher Mac James continues to lead the way at .444 (12-for-27) with eight runs scored and seven driven in on five extra-base hits. Sophomore left fielder Hunter Haley is third on the team with a .345 (10-for-29) average, but leads OU with 11 RBI, 10 runs and three home runs. Oklahoma pitchers have combined to own a 3-to-1 strikeout to walk ratio. The Sooner bullpen, led by senior RHP Drew Krittenbrink and sophomore RHP Ralph Garza Jr. has a cumulative 2.16 earned run average. In five appearances, Krittenbrink has not allowed a run, while Garza owns a 1.69 ERA and picked up a save in five appearances.
