TULSA — The home team regained the lead in the bottom of the seventh as Brandy drove in Cho on a sacrifice fly to left field. Cho was parked on third after singling with one out, moving to second on a Trevino single, then advancing to third on a passed ball.
But in the top of the eighth inning, the Shockers took the lead for good. With Tanner Dearman at first following a walk, Gillaspie ripped a double to score Dearman from first. Two batters later, Gillaspie scored for the second time in the ball game on an unusual 6-4-3 groundout.
ORU threatened in the bottom of the ninth with runners on second and third with two outs, but Brandon Peterson entered the game to strikeout the final batter for the Shocker save.
Freshman Guillermo Trujillo got the start on the bump for ORU and pitched well, going 5.1 innings and striking out three. Nathan Garza came on in relief in the sixth inning, earning the loss, with Wichita State's Cale Elam picking up the win.
