Omaha, Neb. – Despite Jacob Palisch’s eight-strikeout performance, a three-run first-innings homer gave the Sooners a 5-1 win, ending the Eggies season at the Men’s College World Series at Charles Schwab Field Omaha on Wednesday.
Oklahoma advanced early on Peyton Graham’s run and dropped Tanner Treadway in a single before Jimmy Crooks scored a home run to take a 3–0 first-innings lead.
In the third inning, Graham hit Aegis in left-to-left field before being brought into Palais to relieve early Ryan Prager. However, in the next game Graham scored after a fielding error, before the Eggies ended the innings, 4–0.
The Sooners attacked on their last run of the game, when John Spiekerman took the lead with a single into fifth and moved to second on a wild pitch. Treadway sent a single into left field to score Speckerman and take a 5-0 lead.
The Aggies reacted at the top in sixth place, inches closer to 5–1 with a lead-off home run in left center by Dylan Rock.
The bats were quiet for the rest of the game as the Aggies pitching staff made a total of 11 strikeouts and Sooners pulled 13 off the mound.
Texas A&M ended their season with a 5–1 loss in the semifinal game against Oklahoma.
