Game 2 will be on Soonersports.tv in about 30 minutes
Choplick goes 5 ip allows an unearned run on a single hit with 6 so
Garza goes 2 ip allows 3 hits and a run, walked 2 with 3 so
Jacob Evans closed it out throwing 2 ip, allowed 1 hit no runs no walks and 5 so
Sooners made 4 errors giving them 15 errors in just 5 games
We need to get these errors cleaned up and I think we can as the season progresses and we need to shore up the defense.
Game 2 underway now
Im getting busy but i'll post some twitter updates from time to time
1-0 OU still hitting with bases loaded bottom of the 2nd
2-0 OU scores on a double steal. Top of 3
2-0 bottom 3
OU leads 6-1 top of 7th Pine Bluff has 2 on 1 out
OU got out of the jam same score heading to the bottom of the 7th. OU pitchers have struck out 21 batters tonight so far in the double header.
I think we'll have to pump the breaks on our excitement until we really play something. This team looks like it could be good, and we know we have the pitching, but as we learned in 2011, we need to wait until we get to the heart of the schedule.
This team has the tools to be something very special. First and foremost they have got to get it together in field. We will never make it if we are posting errors on the board every game. It is too early to cast judgment either way. They are going to have to play error free baseball to make a run. Second, the bullpen will have to pull their weight and I have no doubt they will. 3rd keep doing it at the plate! We have not exactly faced lights out pitching so again it is hard to judge whether or not this lineup is a legit contender. I think this team want to win and I think they know they can do it. In our come from behind games it was like they just said "Okay, let win now" and then turned it on and did it.
We gotta find a 3rd starter but I think that could be by committee. This could be a hit or miss team, they either make a run or they fall flat on their face come mid-season.
25 guys pulling on the same rope!
In addition to that, metes brings up an interesting point about keeping it going at the plate. This team needs to be aggressive. We haven't faced any legit pitching yet, but there are too many good teams to think we can hang around and then just turn it on at some point. We have the horses in the bullpen to be very good, but we must continually be aggressive at the plate.
They also need to get hot at the right time. Winning is good but turning the heat up late in the year is always good!
I searched the internets and couldn't find it, I guess OUr guys made the SC top 10 last night. Anyone go the vid?
Dillon Overton is badass. My son played against him at state.
OU has got to reduce its infield errors. It’s been way too sloppy.
We could soon be looking as some personnel changes in the line up if players don't stop making the same mistakes.
Our batters for the most part have looked very good and I think we have a pretty deep pitching staff that will be more noticeable as the season progresses.
I've noticed that our 1B have had problems picking the ball out of the dirt. It's like every single ball that's thrown low is going past them.
Ha, well, I'll need a slightly larger body of work, but that is an impressive game for sure. Hopefully we'll get the bats going.
OU tied with Iowa top of 3rd 0-0
OU baseball should have a stronger radio signal particularly when the games are not on TV

now a walk 2 on 2 out. The guy that walked is hitting .056 on the year and walked on 4 pitches
strikeout to end it! OU wins 3-1!!
Overton goes to 3-0 with a 0.38 era and 25:1 strikeout to walk ratio
I see many low scoring games in our future this season. But with the arms we have I think we can afford a little bit of time to get the bats going.
Dillon dominated use and their 2 hole kid was a stud as well.
2-0 OU bot 4
2-1 top of 7th
