OU-UT: Sooners Finally Get a Lead

By Glenn Tanner - April 01, 2007

After three innings in Austin, Oklahoma has its first lead of the series, 1-0.

In their first at-bat Texas uncharacteristically blew a chance to take control early. The first three Longhorns singled, but two were wiped out by baserunning blunders. OU catcher Jackson Williams picked Travis Tucker off second, then Chance Wheeless was doubled off after right fielder Joe Dunigan made a nice running catch.

Oklahoma took the lead in the third after the bottom of their order set the table. Vincent Biancamano (batting .178) and Aaron Ivey singled, and one out later, Joe Dunigan delivered a two-out single to get the Sooners on the board.

It's worth noting that Texas has had Sunday troubles before. The Horns are only 4-4 on Sundays this season, compared to 21-4 on the other days of the week.
