Super Regional Scores, Schedules & Capsules


Oklahoma evens series with Virginia


After dropping the first game of its best-of-three Super Regional to Virginia, Oklahoma coach Sunny Golloway (left) sounded extremely confident when he told reporters, "We fully expect to come back...it's not any disrespect to our opponent."

The Sooners did just that Sunday, knocking around the Cavaliers No. 2 and No. 3 starters in forcing a winner-take-all affair Monday with a 10-7 win at Davenport Field.

Cody Reine hit two homers and drove in five, and Max White added a key two-run homer late for the Sooners (48-16), who had an answer every time the Cavaliers (51-13) made a charge.

Oklahoma chased Robert Morey (9-4) by scoring four times in the first, three coming on Reine's first homer, and getting two runners on with no outs in the third. Cody Winiarski entered and allowed both runners to score, finishing Morey's day with two innings and six earned runs. Winiarksi allowed two of his own in his three innings.

Phil Gosselin ripped a three-run homer in top of the sixth to bring Virginia within one at 8-7, but White's homer pushed it to 10-7.

Jeremy Erben pitched the final 2.2 innings to save it for Jack Mayfield (5-0), who allowed three runs in 3.1 innings of middle relief.

The teams will square off Monday at 7 p.m. with a trip to Omaha on the line. The Cavaliers will be trying to reach the College World Series for the second straight year. The Sooners will look to reach Omaha for the 10th time and first since 1995.
