Big 12 Tournament: Baylor jumps on OU quickly, rolls to 8-2 victory

The Bears pounced on their opportunities. The Sooners did not. OU catcher Brady Lindsly went 3-for-4 and had an RBI double in the eighth inning.

But OU went 0-for-8 with runners in scoring position, including runners on second and third with one out in the fourth. Baylor starter Paul Dickens (5-2) struck out Justin Mitchell and Brandon Zaragoza to end the threat.

“It was a big momentum swing for us,” OU coach Skip Johnson said. “When you don’t take the momentum — because they had the momentum — it really separates. Good teams do that to you. The guy made some quality pitches.”

Dickens held OU to one run on six hits over 6⅓ innings. He struck out six and walked two.

The Sooners had eight hits, but they could have used them in a timelier manner. They stranded 10 baserunners.

OU managed to salvage its bullpen. Aaron Brook, Legend Smith, Jaret Goodman and Ryan Madden closed out the final four innings. Each threw 21 pitches or fewer.

Johnson said Nathan Wiles, who is 8-3 with a 3.67 ERA, will take the mound Thursday.
