OU baseball: Nathan Wiles shuts down Texas in 4-2 Sooners win
Nathan Wiles pitched a season-high eight innings, allowing just two runs and Oklahoma opened its final Big 12 series of the season with a 4-2 win Thursday at Texas.
The junior right-hander scattered eight hits with eight strikeouts and no walks to improve to 8-3 on the season.
Jason Ruffcorn got three outs on just three pitches in the ninth inning to pick up his 11th save.
Brylie Ware opened the scoring for the Sooners (32-20, 10-12 Big 12) with an RBI double in the first inning.
Conor McKenna added an RBI single in the second to put OU up 2-0.
The Sooners gave Wiles all the support he'd need with two more runs in the sixth on and Tyler Hardman RBI single and a Brady Harlan sacrifice fly.
Texas (26-26, 6-15) scored twice in the bottom of the sixth.
The final two games of the series will be played in a day-night doubleheader Friday after the threat of bad weather Saturday forced a schedule change. First pitch will be start at 1 p.m. Friday with the regular-season finale at 6:30 p.m.
