FORT WORTH, Texas – The University of Oklahoma baseball team suffered a 9-1 setback to No. 10 TCU in the series finale, Sunday afternoon. The Sooners, who are 3-9 when playing on Sundays, fell to 27-25 overall and 7-14 in the Big 12, while the Horned Frogs improved to 36-14 and 15-6.
Redshirt-sophomore lefty Adam Choplick (Denton, Texas) could not get out of the second inning and was pulled with the bases loaded and no outs with a run already in. TCU plated four runs in the inning on five hits and a walk. Choplick (3-4) took the loss in one-plus inning, while surrendering four runs on four hits and two walks.
Freshman third baseman Sheldon Neuse (Fort Worth, Texas) registered Oklahoma’s first hit of the game with two outs in the fourth inning when he blasted his sixth home run of the season over the wall in left to cut the lead to 4-1. Neuse turned in his 20th multi-hit game of the season in a 2-for-4 effort.
The Horned Frogs responded with five runs on three hits and three Sooner errors in the bottom half of the fourth. Shortstop Keaton Jones led off the inning with a double and scored the only earned run of the frame. Left fielder Boomer White collected the big-hit of the inning on a bases-clearing, three-RBI double into the left field corner.
Left-hander Tyler Alexander (7-3) allowed just the one run on the Neuse homer over eight innings of work. He surrendered five hits without walking any batters to go with three strikeouts.
Jones went 3-for-4 with a run scored and one driven in for TCU. Three others collected multi-hit games, including first baseman Kevin Cron, who went 2-for-2 with a run and a sacrifice-fly.
Oklahoma remains in North Texas for a Tuesday night game at Dallas Baptist at 6:30 pm.
