Sooners Rally To Stay Alive

Posted: Updated:
The Oklahoma baseball team extends their season by rallying to beat Texas Tech 9-8 at the Big 12 Baseball Tournament in Oklahoma City.

The Red Raiders looked to be in total control of the game.  They went up 7-1 in top half of the sixth, but that's when the Sooners began their comeback.  OU scored two runs in the bottom of the sixth, three runs in the eighth and three more in the ninth.

Craig Akin had a hot bat for the Sooners.  He was 4-6 at the plate and pulled Oklahoma within one in the bottom of the ninth.  Then Sheldon Neuse brought home the tying and game winning run with a line drive to right.

The Sooners season continues as they will face Oklahoma State in the losers bracket Friday at 7:00pm.
