The No. 10-ranked Texas Tech baseball team won its series against Oklahoma with a 7-3 victory Saturday in Norman.

OU starter Levi Prater had a solid day on the mound, allowing just three hits and one run in six innings.

The Sooner bullpen struggled, and gave up seven hits in the last three frames. Texas Tech (32-14, 13-7 Big 12) scored all of its runs in the final four innings.

Ledgend Smith (0-1) took the loss after giving up two runs in 1/3 of an inning. Texas Tech reliever Connor Queen (3-0) tossed 2 2/3 scoreless innings to earn the win.

OU's Brady Lindsly hit a two-run homer in the fifth to break a scoreless tie.

The Sooners (30-17, 8-9) had a 2-1 lead entering the seventh before Texas Tech scored four runs in the frame, which was highlighted by a two-run blast from Josh Jung.

The Red Raiders, who beat OU 10-6 on Friday, will attempt to sweep the three-game series in the finale on Sunday. First pitch is set for 1 p.m.
