Oklahoma Baseball starts off 2023 strong.

It’s Baseball time in Oklahoma!

The Sooners started off their 2023 campaign strong today, picking up a 5-2 win vs Cal Baptist. RHP transfer Kale Davis picked up his first win in the Crimson and Cream, throwing 5 innings while only allowing 1 run, picking up 5 strikeouts, an impressive opening day performance to say the least. The Sooners scored their first run of the season, on a bases-loaded walk to tie up the game 1-1 in the 1st inning. 

Welcome to Norman Dakota Harris!

The Sooners’ new shortstop Dakota Harris made a lasting opening-day impression, sparking a 3-run 4th inning on a solo shot to left field. Rocco Garza-Gongora followed up Harris’ homer with a triple, scoring Wallace Clark. Then, ChaOUs struck, as Garza-Gongora scored on the wild pitch, capping off the 3-run inning.

The Sooners’ bullpen had an impressive showing, allowing zero runs. Carson Atwood took over in the 6th, picking up his first strikeout of the season in the frame. Skip Johnson then turned to Carter Campbell for 2 innings of work, striking out 2 batters. The Sooners picked up an insurance run off of the bat of Jackson Nicklaus, driving one in the gap for a double, scoring Anthony Mackenzie from first. Close Aaron Calhoun sealed the deal in a 1-2-3 inning, striking out 2 on 12 pitches.

The Sooners will look to pick up another win tomorrow afternoon at 2 pm in game 2 of the 3-game series. RHP Will Carsten will get the start for the Sooners.
