CHARLESTON, W. Va. -- West Virginia grabbed six two-out RBIs while Oklahoma stranded 13 baserunners as the Mountaineers took a 9-6 win Sunday at Appalachian Power Park.

The decision and Kansas State's 9-3 win at Texas placed the three teams in a three-way tie for first in the Big 12 standings with two weekends remaining in the regular season.

West Virginia (29-20, 11-7 Big 12) batted through the order in the second to build a 6-2 lead. OU starter Billy Waltrip (2-3) led off the inning hitting designated hitter Matt Frazer with a pitch and loaded Mountaineers on bases after allowing a walk and bunt single. Shortstop Taylor Munden scored Frazer with a sacrifice fly to plate the first of five runs WVU scored in the inning.

The next four West Virginia runs were unearned. With two outs, Brady Wilson reached base when a high chopper was misplayed by OU shortstop Jack Mayfield. Bobby Boyd, Wilson, Jacob Rice and Ryan Tuntland would score before Billy Fleming grounded out.

Oklahoma (34-14, 11-7) opened the game 2-0 after clean-up hitter Jack Mayfield laced a two-RBI double just inside third base the first time through the order, scoring Craig Aikin and Max White who led off the game with back-to-back singles.

Munden scored on a wild pitch to halve the deficit in the bottom frame.

John Means (4-2) took the victory despite giving up 11 hits in six innings.

Oklahoma tested the bullpen four two-out runs in the eighth. Aikin walked and rounded the bases after singles by White and Oberste. Mayfield smacked his fifth hit of the afternoon to score White. Two at-bats later Lorenzana hit a two-RBI single before Pascal Paul finished the inning for the Mountaineers.

But WVU would distance itself further in the following sequence with Ryan McBroom's fifth RBI of the game, a deep single to second that prevented a double play and plated Wilson.
