Texas Loses to Oklahoma, Drops 6th Straight Big 12 Series

Updated: Sunday, April 7 2013, 11:32 PM CDT

Hector Lorenzana’s two-run double capped a three-run eighth inning Sunday for the No. 13 Oklahoma Sooners in a 4-2 win over the Texas Longhorns to clinch the Big 12 series. Oklahoma (27-6, 7-2) earned its first series win over Texas (17-13, 3-6) since 1998.
 
Corey Knebel (3-2) took the loss after allowing all three runs in the eighth despite a strong outing by UT starter Nathan Thornhill, who tied a career best with seven strikeouts. Thornhill allowed just one unearned run on four hits in seven innings of work with no walks. Erich Weiss went 1-for-4 with two RBI while C.J Hinojosa extended his season-high hitting streak to 10 games with a 1-for-3 game.
 
Billy Waltrip was credited with the win after pitching to only one batter in the seventh. Jacob Evans picked up his fifth save on the year with two scoreless innings of relief. Jake Mayfield and Max White recorded three hits each for the Sooners.
 
The Sooners jumped on the scoreboard first in the top of the second with an unearned run from designated hitter Kolbey Carpenter, who reached on a fielding error by Hinojosa. Garrett Carey hit a chopper near Thornhill with two outs and Carpenter at third, but Thornhill’s errant throw scored the run for the Sooners.
 
With two outs in the bottom on the third, Weiss tripled to left center to plate Ben Johnson and Brooks Marlow as Texas took the 2-1 lead.
 
Mayfield led off the eighth with a single off Knebel. Craig Aikin dropped a bunt with Knebel having a chance to get the lead out, but he bobbled the ball and retired Aikin at first. Mayfield then got to third on a Knebel wild pitch and White blooped a single over Marlow at second to tie the game. Knebel struck out Matt Oberste before giving up a single to Carpenter. Lorenzana then laced the two-run double to left center as the Sooners took the lead for good.
 
Texas hosts Texas State in a non-conference game this Saturday (April 9) at 6 p.m. at UFCU Disch-Falk Field. Longhorn Network will televise the game with live radio on AM 1300 The Zone. Gametracker live stats will be available on TexasSports.com with live Twitter updates @Texas_Baseball.
 
Notes: Mark Payton extended his streak of reaching base safely to 19 games…Nathan Thornhill struck out seven batters for the fourth time in his career (June 5, 2011, vs. Kent State, March 16, 2012, vs. Oklahoma and March 17, 2013, vs. Texas Tech)…C.J Hinojosa’s current 10-game hitting streak is the second-best for Texas this season.Texas Loses to Oklahoma, Drops 6th Straight Big 12 Series
