Baseball Drops Midweek Contest to ORU

Updated:
PRESS RELEASE UNIVERSITY OF OKLAHOMA: 

The University of Oklahoma baseball team totaled eight hits to Oral Roberts’ four, but was shutout at home, 2-0, at L. Dale Mitchell Park on Tuesday night in front of a crowd of 1,001. The Sooners dropped to 23-11 on the season, while the Golden Eagles improved to 15-16.


ORU struck for a run in the third and the fourth off redshirt-junior right-hander Robert Tasin (Klein, Texas). Left fielder Logan Domenico lined a double down the left field line that drew up plenty of chalk on the foul line to drive in the first run of the game. In the fourth, right fielder Tyler Boss hit a lead-off double to right, advanced to third on a wild pitch and scored on a sacrifice-fly from second baseman Matt Brandy.

“When that scoreboard is on you have to go try and beat somebody,” stated head coach Pete Hughes. “I didn't like our energy tonight. The past Tuesdays I didn't think it was an energy thing, but tonight I didn't like our energy. Just in the ninth, when you get a guy on the ropes you have to go get them. How about we stop waiting around until the ninth, too. I don't want to take anything away from their pitching staff either. They ran some good arms out there. [Pepe] Gomez has our number, that's obvious, and those other two guys out of their pen were good arms."

Tasin (3-3) lasted 3.1 innings in his third start of the season. He gave up the two runs on three hits and two walks to go with two strikeouts. For the Golden Eagles, right-hander Pepe Gomez (4-3) went five-shutout innings to get the win as he scattered four hits and a walk and struck out four.

For the game, Oklahoma stranded 10 runners on base. The first two runners reached in both the second and ninth innings, but were unable to score.

Senior shortstop Hector Lorenzana (San Diego, Calif.) and freshman third baseman Sheldon Neuse (Fort Worth, Texas) each went 2-for-4 on the night.

In relief, sophomore lefty Jacob Evans (Broken Arrow, Okla.) struck out a career-high seven batters in 3.2 innings of work as he allowed just one hit and didn’t walk a batter.

Right-hander Jordan Romano picked up his seventh save of the season for ORU in two innings of relief. He surrendered two hits and two walks, including two four-pitch walks to start the ninth, and added a pair of strikeouts.

The Sooners return to action this weekend when they host Texas on Friday night at 6:00 pm.
