The embarrassing losses caused Golloway to tinker with his lineup, moving clean-up hitter Matt Oberste to the top of the lineup, and former leadoff man Jack Mayfield to the bottom. In two games since the shakeup, OU has scored 24 runs, with Mayfield hitting 3 for 6 with six RBIs and a home run.
“When you get stuck, things weren't going our way, so moving things around and starting off new was good,” said senior Max White, who was 4 for 5 with a home run and 2 RBIs Saturday.
Oklahoma scored at least one run in each of the first seven innings Saturday, and 10 of the Sooners' season-high 19 hits were extra-base hits.
After the New Orleans series, OU travels Tuesday to meet Arkansas in another nonconference game, then resumes Big 12 play at home next weekend in a three-game series with Texas Tech.
“It's good to get these hits and get the ball rolling,” White said. “We've got to. We've got a good chance to win the Big 12 championship, so we've gotta work hard and get that momentum back."
