OU Baseball Takes Series vs. Pepperdine

Posted: Updated:

The No. 10-ranked University of Oklahoma baseball team captured the weekend series over Pepperdine courtesy of a 8-1 victory in the rubber match Sunday at L. Dale Mitchell Park. The Sooners improved to 11-1 through three weeks of play in 2013.

OU pounded out 10 hits as a team for the eighth time this season -- including a season-high three home runs -- to beat the Waves (7-5). Senior infielder Jack Mayfield launched his second round tripper of the year while senior outfielder/infielder Max White and senior infielder Garrett Carey each left the yard for the first time in 2013. Mayfield went 2-for-3 with three RBI and two runs scored while Carey finished 2-for-4. Freshman outfielder Craig Aikin went 2-for-4 with two RBI and a run scored, his fourth straight multi-hit game. Junior infielder Matt Oberste cracked his fourth double of the season and has now hit safely in 15 consecutive games dating back to the 2012 season.

Redshirt freshman southpaw starting pitcher Adam Choplick fanned three over 5.1 innings of work and improved to 2-0 on the season. Junior lefty Billy Waltrip came out of the bullpen and twirled 3.2 scoreless frames, striking out seven.

The Sooners head south of the Red River to take on UT Arlington Tuesday. First pitch is scheduled for 6:30 p.m. CT.
