NORMAN — Solid pitching and another key play from Matt Oberste helped Oklahoma trim Kansas 2-1 in 10 innings Friday night in a Big 12 baseball game at Mitchell Park.
Oberste's bases-loaded sacrifice fly drove in Hunter Haley with the winning run as the Sooners improved to 25-4 overall and 5-0 in the Big 12. Oberste also continued his school-record hitting streak (29 games) with a double. Until his game-winning RBI, the Sooners' only run was a second-inning homer from Kolbey Carpenter.
Starting pitcher Dillon Overton nursed the one-run lead until seventh inning. Kansas scored an unearned run (OU had four errors) to tie it 1-1. Otherwise Overton was strong. He surrendered just four hits, walked two and struck out six. Relief pitcher Jacob Evans picked up the win after blanking the Jayhawks (14-11 and 2-3 over the final three innings.
The series ends with a 2 p.m. game Saturday.
