CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. - It took Oklahoma 19 innings to take a lead in the NCAA baseball tournament. When it finally happened, it extended the Sooners' season for a few more hours.

OU scored the decisive run in a 2-1 victory against Army in the tenth inning, when Max White singled to drive in Caleb Bushyhead from second base.

White and Bushyhead's hits in the extra frame were the seventh in two days for the Sooners, who have received strong starting pitching but have struggled to generate offense.

The bats will get another try, though, after staving off elimination by knocking out the No. 4 seed Black Knights. Oklahoma (39-23) plays another elimination game tonight at 6 p.m. CT against the loser of the day's second game, between Virginia and Appalachian State.

Sunday morning's game was tied after nine innings, with each team scratching out a run with small ball during the middle frames.

Army, the home team, got a hit from Harold Earls to open the fifth, and brought him around with two sacrifice bunts and a double by Zach Price. Price tried to extend it to a triple, but was thrown out to end the inning.
