Entering the Bedlam baseball series, the pitching focus centered on the Sooners' staff, led by ace and potential No. 1 draft pick Jonathan Gray.
Through two games, Oklahoma State's pitchers have controlled the series.
After Jason Hursh went the distance in Friday night's 4-3 win, Tyler Nurdin spotted the Cowboys 5 2/3 strong innings Saturday, carrying a no-hitter into the fifth. Armed with a game plan provided by coaches Josh Holliday and Rob Walton, Nurdin earned the win, with help from relievers Vince Wheeland and Brendan McCurry.
“I didn't really think too much about it,” Nurdin said of his matchup with Gray. “I just listened to Rob and Josh all week long and all day today and yesterday. I just knew what I had to do to take care of business.”
The Sooners get left-hander Dillon Overton (8-2) back for Sunday's game, after he missed two weeks with elbow inflammation. The Cowboys counter with right-hander Mark Robinette (5-0).
WHAT'S THE COUNT?
At the plate in a key spot in the sixth inning, OU's Matt Oberste lost track of the count.
