Oklahoma Cheats Its Way To 2-1 Victory; Saturday Open Thread

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The Sooners can have their petty Friday night victories. Texas will always be #1 in gentlemanly club life.

Where in the rules of baseball does it say that a team is allowed to have timely sacrifice fly outs and base hits with men on base? Texas played the game the right way, failing to score in the 6th with the bases loaded and one out or in the 7th with runners on second and third and Erich Weiss up with two outs.

That's playing baseball as Mr. Naismith intended.

But of course the Sooners have to cheat to score their runs. OU got a sac fly in the top of the 1st and a single up the middle with runners on first and second and one out in the 6th after Parker French departed. French wasn't brilliant but he was bad either and more than held his own for most of the night with Oklahoma ace Jonathan Gray.

Texas was once again not atrocious offensively, pounding out seven hits against Gray whose MLB draft stock will no doubt take a nose dive as a result. But the inability to manufacture runs and get timely hits doomed the Horns.

Again.

It's getting old, guys.

In terms of the moral victories, Texas didn't get beat 15-0 and notorious Sooner cheater Matt Oberste's 30 game hitting streak came to an end. So for all intents and purposes Texas was the winner last night. Huzzah!

The Horns and Sooners return to action on Saturday at 2:30 at UFCUDFF. Dillon Peters will be on the mound for the Horns as Texas faces a real must win game if its going to keep alive its NCAA tournament hopes. The game is on Fox Sports Net and this'll be your open thread.
