Fort Worth, Texas - The Oklahoma baseball team dropped its seventh-straight game as the Sooners fell, 6-1, to TCU Tuesday afternoon in Fort Worth, Texas. TCU starting pitcher David Tombrella (1-1) held the OU offense to only six hits and one run in eight innings pitched as Oklahoma's record fell to 2-8 on the year. TCU improved to 8-5 on the season with its fourth-straight win.
Senior catcher Sean Smith (0-for-1), making his first start behind the plate, scored the Sooners lone run of the game in the seventh inning when freshman second baseman Matt Fisher (1-for-3) delivered a RBI single to bring Smith home from second base. Fisher, who recorded his first collegiate hit, was also making his first start of the season at second base.
Senior first baseman Greg Dobbs led the Sooners offensively with a 3-for-4 performance at the plate. Junior righthander Evan Greusel (0-1) took the loss for Oklahoma after pitching three innings and surrendering only five hits and three runs in his second start of the season.
The OU defense, which committed 17 errors in three games last weekend, made only one error in the game. Several players made position changes in the field including senior Jason Bartlett who moved to third base, junior Sergio Garcia moved to shortstop, Dobbs who played at first, Fisher at second base and Smith moved behind the plate.
Oklahoma will host Kansas for a weekend set at L. Dale Mitchell Park in Norman in its first Big 12 Conference series of the season.
