MORGANTOWN, W.Va.-The No. 25 West Virginia University baseball team split a doubleheader with Oklahoma on Saturday afternoon.
After suspending the opening game of the series due to lightning, the Mountaineers and Sooners finished Friday’s game as part of a doubleheader on Saturday.
Trailing 2-1 in the sixth, WVU sent freshman Sam Kessler (1-2) to the mound. The right-hander pitched 2.2 innings, allowing just two hits and picking up his first career win.
Jimmy Galusky led the Mountaineers with three hits and second baseman Kyle Gray drove in the eventual game-winning run with a two-out single in the sixth inning.
With the bases loaded and no outs, Brandon White hit into a double play that tied the game. Gray followed with a single through the left side to give WVU a 3-2 lead.
Kyle Davis gave the Mountaineers a 1-0 lead with a solo shot in the bottom of the second.
The series finale will be Sunday at 11:30 a.m. (ET).
