Sooners have a good squad, so this is a big test for the Beavs. A win and they'll crack the top 25.

Barring weather, first pitch will  be11am (and remember, Daylight Savings Time).

    Was that a double steal, or did the runner on 3rd just go in when the run down started happening?

      The latter. The play is for the runner on first to get in a rundown so the runner from third can score from third.

    Defensive mistake by the Beavers. Runner attempts to steal second with runners on first and third and Rodriguez should never have thrown to second and Smith has to have the awareness to know the runner from third will try to score. Really poorly done all around. Beavers down 2-0

    I don’t know. Last night Jim Wilson was on the OSU 1st base coach because he wasn’t warning the runner that the other team was trying to catch the OSU guy who had just gotten a hit that the other team was trying to catch him off the base as he rounded the corner. According to Wilson this happened twice during last night’s game.

    It should be 5-0 at the most. If Dettman doesn’t misplay the fly ball the last 2 runs do not score. The Beavers are just not doing the little things well. Schultz made two mistakes in the field this inning and Dettman in CF made a mistake. What went wrong against UConn is what’s going wrong today. Poor defense and not getting timely hitting.

    The Beavers still have a chance in this one but the offense need to start coming through and they need their pitchers to step up. Still very early in this game but they need to start putting runs on the board immediately and start cutting into the deficit.

    I think it shows how valuable starting pitching will be this season. This weekend won’t be a total loss as I think we have started to figure out our rotation. Fry pitched well and as long as we ease him back and he stays healthy and if Wetzel can continue to throw strikes, we just need that third starter. Childs is not that good and Bayliss hasn’t proved he can do it. The other question mark is Adam Duke, can he come back and become a solid pitcher? He’s got the stuff, but he has to do it consistently. If we can get those three going then it really helps the whole staff.

    It’s been disappointing how inconsistent the defense has been in Casey’s last four seasons. I don’t know what we need to do there? I think we sacrifice defense to get offense which we despirately nede.

    Keyes has all sorts of problems with his swing. I’m not sure how much longer Casey can give him to figure out his problems. His struggles are really hurting the team. Also, he may be taking his struggles to the field. I know he was a key guy and you want to give him time but you can only do that for so long.

      So very good for the psyche of this young team. Lessons to be learned for sure, but reinforces the mantra, “never say die” .

      Well, even you have to admit when the team was down 7-0, couldn’t hit with RISP, couldn’t field it and couldn’t get anyone out that you thought the Sooners were gonna win big.

      Haha. Where are you when I’m right, Beaverkman? Play both ways or no ways.

      Had I known Oklahoma would give the Beavs 5 extra outs (~2 innings worth) and at key points in the game, I wouldn’t have written that so soon. Oklahoma has a solid club, though, so I figured they’d lock it up. Lesson learned. Weird thing is, I’m usually patient with baseball and rarely write a game off…it’s a strange sport in that no time limit means any comeback is possible.

    Never did hear why Boyd never got in the game. Is PC holding him back for a starting role to open conference play?

    I was thinking they were going to lose, however I kept watching to see if they could pull it off and am pleasantly surprised. With these college teams and you get to last game of the weekend you get games like today. I was just giving you a little heck at your expense, I know you were still rooting them on.
