SOONERS STARTERS NOT AS PRODUCTIVE

It’s no surprise that Oklahoma’s starters aren’t as good as they were a year ago when Jonathan Gray and Dillon Overton led the rotation.

This season, with Adam Choplick, Jake Elliott and Corey Copping as the Sooners’ primary starters, OU’s production from the rotation is down.

The Sooners’ starters have a 4.14 ERA, averaging less than five innings per start and no complete games.

Oklahoma’s overall ERA is 3.47, fifth in the Big 12.

A season ago, OU’s starters had a 2.87 ERA and averaged nearly 5 2/3 innings per start. Sooner pitchers threw eight complete games in 2013.

Overall, the Sooners’ ERA was 2.95, good enough for third-best in the Big 12.
