From Staff Reports Published: March 1, 2013

Oklahoma State used single runs in the seventh and eighth innings Friday to beat California-Davis 4-2 in baseball at Reynolds Stadium in Stillwater.

Victor Romero led off the seventh inning with a home run to give the Cowboys a 3-2 lead. Randy McCurry added some insurance with a run-scoring double in the eighth.

Cal-Davis (5-5) led 2-0 after 4½ innings, but OSU (8-1) tied it in the bottom half of the fifth on Green's two-run single.

Reliever Vince Wheeland (2-0) blanked the Aggies on no hits, no walks and five strikeouts over the final three innings.

OU REMAINS UNBEATEN

The No. 10-ranked Oklahoma baseball team scored in double figures — and needed everything it got. Hunter Haley homered, and three players had two RBIs each as the Sooners beat Pepperdine 10-7 on Friday at Mitchell Park in Norman.

The Sooners (10-0) appeared to take control early, owning an 8-0 lead after three innings. But Pepperdine (6-4) scores six runs in fourth inning to make it a tight game again.

OU starter Dillon Overton improved to 4-0, though he surrendered six runs on six hits in six innings. He did strike out 10.

The Sooners and Waves play again at 2 p.m. Saturday.
