From Eric Bailey: Tyler Hardman's change of mental approach leads to big offensive numbers for Sooners

Quote:
The belief baseball can be a mental game was witnessed by Oklahoma’s Tyler Hardman during his freshman season.

Hardman struggled in his rookie season. Looking back with a smile last week, Hardman said he’s been able to distance himself for these up-and-down days at the plate.

“The offense is what makes baseball the hardest thing. You have to be OK with failing and then really work at it during the fall, trying to get some consistency behind it,” Hardman said about his path to this season. “Staying behind the ball and working on the offensive plan and not getting down on yourself. The mental game of baseball is what the really good players are good at. If I had to pick something that helped me the most, it’s the mental game.”

Hardman enters Tuesday’s 6 p.m. game at Oral Roberts as the Sooners’ top hitter. The first baseman is batting .333 with a team-high five home runs and 31 RBIs.

Tuesday night game recap...

Quote:
It wasn’t the prettiest of victories, but in the end, the Oral Roberts baseball team grinded it out and came through when it mattered most.

With the bases loaded and one out in the ninth inning Tuesday night, ORU reliever Spencer Henson struck out Oklahoma’s Conor McKenna. Then, in a seven-pitch battle, he induced Justin Mitchell into a fly out to secure the Golden Eagles a nail-biting 3-2 triumph over OU at J.L. Johnson Stadium.

“The first couple of batters didn’t go the way it was supposed to, kind of left some balls up in the zone and plunked the second guy,” said Henson, who allowed a leadoff double to OU’s Diego Muniz and then hit Brylie Ware before allowing a one-out single to Brady Lindsly to load the bases.

“The main thing is just kind of coming back to your routines, your mental talk, and try not to get too into the moment. At that point, you just have to approach it one batter at a time, one pitch at a time, and just try to execute as best you can.”

Drillers update: Former OU QB Cody Thomas socks 3 homers in win over Springfield

Quote:
Former Oklahoma quarterback Cody Thomas belted three home runs and went 4-4of-4 with five RBIs to power the Drillers to a 10-7 victory over the Springfield Cardinals on Wednesday at Hammons Field. Thomas snapped a 3-3 tie with a fourth-inning homer and his three-run blast in the seventh provided the eventual winning margin. Tulsa’s Gavin Lux and Zach McKinstry had back-to-back homers in the fifth.

It was the Double-A Drillers’ first three-homer game since Jacob Scavuzzo did it June 21, 2017 — also in a matinee at Springfield. The other four Drillers to hit three homers in a game are Fernando Tatis Sr. (1997), Craig Monroe (2000), Travis Hafner (2001) and Jason Moore (2002).

For Thomas, it was the second three-homer game of his pro career — his other was on Aug. 3, 2017, for low Single-A Great Lakes. His perfect day at the plate lifted Thomas’ batting average from .184 to .262.
The latest on OU baseball from Eric Bailey...

Quote:
Looking ahead: The Sooners will spend their nonconference weekend playing a three-game series at Minnesota on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Oklahoma also will play Tuesday at Wichita State.

Looking back: OU lost two of three games at Baylor last weekend and lost 3-2 at Oral Roberts on Tuesday.

Notable: OU is looking for a midseason turnaround after losing nine of its past 13 games. … Brandon Zaragoza has scored a team-high 32 runs. … Pitcher Ben Abram is the co-leader with wins (six) in the Big 12. … Jason Ruffcorn has a Big 12-best eight saves.

Saturday; April 20: Sooners Even Series at Minnesota
http://www.soonersports.com/ViewArti...CLID=211800803

Quote:
MINNEAPOLIS Backed by excellent pitching from junior Nathan Wiles and a trio of relievers, the Oklahoma baseball team evened the series at Minnesota with a 2-1 victory Saturday afternoon at sunny Target Field.

Wiles (6-2) struck out six and allowed a run on just three hits over 6.1 innings for the Sooners (26-14). Freshman Wyatt Olds, sophomore Ledgend Smith and junior Jason Ruffcorn closed out the final 2.2 frames. Ruffcorn tallied four strikeouts in 1.2 innings and earned his ninth save of the season. The OU pitchers combined for 12 strikeouts and allowed just three hits.

First baseman Tyler Hardman drove in both runs for Oklahoma, drawing a bases-loaded walk in the third inning and driving an RBI double in the fifth inning. The Golden Gophers (17-19) scored their only run on a solo homer by right fielder Easton Bertrand in the bottom of the fifth. Starter Max Meyer (3-3) took the loss for Minnesota.

OUs win sets up a rubber game at 11 a.m. Sunday back on Minnesota's campus at Siebert Field.
