The Sooners would let it be interesting for 6 innings until everything unraveled for Texas A&M. The Sooners had just a 3-2 lead going into the 6th inning but the Sooners would end up winning in a run rule with a home run blast by Keilani Ricketts to make the ending score 10-2 in the Sooners favor. The Second game on Saturday just proved how little chance the Aggies had. The Sooners jumped out quickly to a 1-0 lead and never looked back. Shelby Pendley added 2 home runs behind Ricketts dominate pitching. The Sooners were just way too powerful for the Aggies and it was apparent early in the weekend. The Sooners pitching and offense is very impressive and will be on display next Thursday in Oklahoma City at the WCWS. The Sooners will take on the Michigan Wolverines.
The Sooner baseball team entered the Big 12 tournament in desperate need of a win and a reason to feel good about themselves. The Sooner baseball team has not played well in recent weeks and went from the top of the Big 12 standings to a fourth seed. The Sooners took on Baylor in the first game. Jonathan Gray was just too much for Baylor to overcome as he only allowed 3 hits and the Sooners got by with a 2-0 win. The Sooners would next take on Texas Tech. The bats came alive for the Sooners as they recorded 13 hits and Dillon Overton only allowed 3 hits against the Red Raiders. The Sooners would prevail 8-0. The Sooners would next take on the top seed Kansas State Wildcats. The wildcats would not go away as they would score 4 runs in the 9th to send it to extra innings. Then the Cats would score a run in the 10th to tie it again. The Sooners would find a way in the 11th to prevail 7-6 and advance to the championship game. In the championship game the Sooners would take on the Kansas Jayhawks. The Sooners jumped out to a quick 3-0 lead and that was enough. The Sooners flashed great defense and Matt Oberste helped out with a bomb of a home run. The Sooners would go on to beat the Jayhawks 7-2 and win the 2013 Big 12 Championship.
