Game 3 – Oklahoma 2, Army 1 (10)
It was a typical BBCOR college baseball game: 3 runs, 11 hits
over 10 innings.
Small ball was the theme. Sac bunt attempts, hit-and-runs,
stealing, you name it, it was attempted. Both coaches tried to
make the correct call, and finally Oklahoma got the hit it
needed in the top of the 10th to win.
Both starters were solid, allowing two runs in 14 innings. Logan
Lee gave up two hits, four walks and one run in seven innings
for Army with four strikeouts, while Jonathan Gray surrendered
five hits, two walks and one run in seven frames for OU with six
Both relievers were solid as well, with one run
in six innings. Steven Okert allowed one hit in three scoreless
innings while striking out three in getting the win for the
Sooners. Gunnar Carroll allowed three hits and one run in three
frames for the Knights.
It was relatively clean game in the field, with
just one error in 93 chances.
Army had chances, but had runners thrown out at home and third
with two outs. Another pick off with a 3-2 count stopped what
could have been a big inning. The middle of the order was at the
plate at the time. You never know what the inning holds.
Oklahoma had the leadoff guy on several times, but failed to
advance them. Army’s catcher, J.T. Watkins, was on the money on
more than a few throws.
Max White, who was 0 for 7 in two regional games, came through
with a solid single in the top of the 10th and Caleb Bushyhead
made an excellent read off the bat to score without a throw.
Oklahoma has pitching. If they can find a hot streak with the
bats, they have a chance to make some noise from the losers’
