OKLAHOMA CITY Oklahoma had no answer for Oklahoma State’s pitching for the third game of the Bedlam Series presented by the Bank of Oklahoma and Your Oklahoma Ford Dealers, losing 4-0 Sunday night at AT&T Bricktown Ballpark.
“Oklahoma State played terrific this weekend and you can’t take anything away from them,” OU head coach Sunny Golloway said. “Good baseball is good baseball and they played good baseball.”
Oliver Odle (4-3) pitched the second consecutive complete-game shut out for the Cowboys and kept runners from advancing as the Sooners left 10 men on base.
“Their pitcher did a good job against our hitters,” Golloway said. “He kept us off balance. One thing about this game, you’ve got to give credit where credit is due.
“They did a good job pitching. Good pitching is going to get good hitting out.”
Oklahoma had to play from behind early after giving up a run to OSU in the second inning.

“You’ve got to maintain the lead when you pitch. Your job is to go out there a not let them have the lead.”
OU starter P.J. Sandoval (6-3) suffered the loss. Sandoval pitched six innings, giving up two runs (one earned) on six hits.
