Norman, Okla. - Austin Mix had a career outing on the mound Saturday afternoon as Oklahoma recorded its second win in as many days over Centenary College, 7-1, at L. Dale Mitchell Park. The sophomore righthander struck out a career-high 13 batters, allowed only two hits and did not issue a walk in completing his second game of the season. Mix finished off his impressive performance by facing the minimum in seven of the nine frames. The win improved Mix's record to 2-7 as the Sooners jumped to 18-28-1 overall. The Gents fell to 22-25-1 as starter Jeff Poulin was charged with the loss (5-6).

Junior first baseman Charlie Frasier (2-for-3) provided the offensive highlights for the Sooners in the game. Frasier tied a career high in RBIs with four after knocking in a run in the fourth inning with a single and blasting a three run homer, his ninth of the year, in a four-run fifth inning.

OU, who registered double-digits in the hits column for the second-straight game with 10, began the scoring in the third inning. Junior rightfielder Zach Harris (1-for-4) led off the frame with a double and, after moving to third on a passed ball, crossed home plate on freshman designated hitter Ryan Welborn's (1-for-3) groundout to second base.

Senior centerfirlder Jerome Godsey (1-for-5) scored the Sooners' final run of the game in the sixth inning when, after collecting a base hit, he was doubled home by freshman second baseman Matt Fisher (1-for-5). Fisher extended his career-best hitting streak to nine games with the RBI-double.

The Gents got their only run off of Mix in the eighth inning when rightfielder Seth Winterer (1-for-3) hit a solo home run to left field.

Oklahoma will look to complete the sweep of Centenary tomorrow in the series finale at 1 p.m. at L. Dale Mitchell Park.
