Oral Roberts shuts down Oklahoma
Sooners go 0-2, eliminated after being shutout by ORU
FORT WORTH, Texas -- Jared Schlehuber drove in three runs and Drew Bowen shut down Oklahoma’s anemic offense in a 7-0 victory Saturday in an elimination game at the Fort Worth Regional.
Bowen (6-2) gave up six hits, walked three and struck out one in eight innings for the Golden Eagles (37-21). Schlehuber hit a two-run single in Oral Roberts’ three-run first inning, and the Golden Eagles made it 6-0 with three more in the second.
Oral Roberts also benefited from six fielding errors by Oklahoma (41-19), which left 12 runners on base and finished the season with 14 runs in their last six games. Sooners starter Burch Smith (10-4) allowed three runs in just two-thirds of an inning.
