Sooners Baseball in the Desert for ASU Tournament

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.
