On Colt Bickerstaff's RBI single, Hector Lorenzana collided with Red Raiders shortstop Tim Proudfoot and fell to the dirt.
Lorenzana stood up and stopped trying to advance and Bruns awarded him third base.
Tadlock and Bruns had a heated conversation about the play but Tadlock stayed in the game and the Red Raiders got out of the inning without further damage.
OU FINALLY GETS OFFENSIVE
The Sooners' eight-run outburst was their biggest in nearly a month.
OU also scored eight in its 8-0 win over the Red Raiders on April 26 in the opener of their Big 12 series.
The Sooners hadn't scored more than that since beating New Orleans 14-3 on April 21.
The five-run ninth was also their best single inning since that game, when the Sooners scored seven in the fourth.
BEARS WILL FIND MOTIVATION
Baylor coach Steve Smith said his players won't need motivation to come out and play hard in their final game of the Big 12 Tournament tomorrow, despite an 0-2 record in pool play, no chance of advancing to Sunday's title game and abandoned hope of making the postseason.
When asked how the team will come out in its last game of the season, he responded by saying he doesn't know if it'll be the team's last game, but he did know it'll play hard as usual.
“After you lose the first game here, you're really not playing for (the championship) in this format,” Smith said. “That's the downside of the format, because you lose control over your destiny.”
Smith Saturday's game against Texas Tech will have meaning for one group: his seniors.
“Tomorrow, Cal Towey will have a lot to play for, Nathan Orf will have a lot to play for, (Steve) Dalporto will have a lot to play for. I don't think our guys have to look for reasons to play; that's not who they are. You know, if they'll go to class and punch out a 3.3 GPA, they'll come to play.”
KSU'S FISHER WON'T PLAY
Kansas State sophomore shortstop Austin Fisher (back) won't play Saturday against Oklahoma, coach Brad Hill said following his team's 13-9 win Friday over Baylor.
Fisher hasn't played since Kansas State's 6-5 win over Oklahoma on May 17.
Fisher is hitting .356 this season, and was a first-team All-Big 12 selection.
Freshman Lance Miles has started in Fisher's place, and was 2 for 5 with three RBIs on Friday.
