Gray leads OU past Texas Tech

Oklahoma right-hander Jonathan Gray allowed one run on two hits in 7 1/3 innings as the No. 11 Oklahoma baseball team beat Texas Tech 6-2 on Saturday at Mitchell Park.

Earlier Saturday, the Sooners (33-10, 10-4 Big 12) wrapped up an 8-0 win over the Red Raiders (19-24, 5-12) that was suspended by rain Friday night.

Gray opened Saturday's regularly scheduled game with three straight strikeouts and added two more in the top of the second inning. Gray finished with seven punchouts after taking a no-hitter into the sixth inning.

“It's always better to pitch with a lead, but Jonathan's been pretty dominant regardless of whether he throws on Friday or Saturday,” OU coach Sunny Golloway said. “It wouldn't even matter if we had him throw on Monday. I think he's really special. I'm biased, but I clearly believe he's a special pitcher in college baseball.” 

First baseman and leadoff hitter Matt Oberste had two hits and two RBIs to pace the Sooners' offense. Craig Akin added three hits, and Colt Bickerstaff drove in a pair of runs.
