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.
