OU sports recap: OU baseball improves to 6-0 in Big 12 play

Mar. 19—OU baseball still undefeated in Big 12 play

Oklahoma went on the road over the week and picked up its second straight conference sweep.

The Sooners took the opening game against TCU 7-3, before closing out the series with a 7-5 win on Saturday and a 9-4 win on Sunday. The Horned Frogs were ranked No. 12 coming into the weekend and are 14-0 in non-conference games.

It was the first time the program has earned back to back sweeps over conference foes since 2018 and its first sweep of TCU since 2013.

No other team in the conference is still undefeated in Big 12 play and no other team has fewer than two losses. The Sooners will put their 6-0 record on the line this weekend for a three-game series against West Virginia.

Gasso earns 400th win

Oklahoma softball improved its winning streak to nine games, going 3-0 on the road against Texas Tech last weekend.

Sunday's 11-1 win marked the 400th career conference win for head coach Patty Gasso. She's the first Big 12 coach to ever reach that milestone in any sport.

The Sooners won all three games over the weekend by 10 runs or more. They outscored the Red Raiders 40-3 with a five-inning run-rule win on Saturday.

Oklahoma returns to Love's Field on Wednesday for a mid-week game against UT Arlington at 6 p.m.

They closed out the meet with a 49.825 on floor, which tied the program record.

The Sooners have a quick turnaround before competing at the Big 12 Championships on Saturday. The meet begins at 5:15 p.m. at the Lloyd Noble Center and will be televised on ESPNU.
