This was not the guy the statistics told me about. Garrett Richards completely dominated the Cougs today, going the distance. His control was pinpoint. His curveball was working for strikes and his fastball was giving Wazzu fits. WSU struggled to get the ball out of the infield, save for two run homer by Matt Weber in the top of the 2nd.
The game stayed close until the bottom of the 7th, when a grand slam put the score at 7-2 OU. Oklahoma was hitting the ball hard all day, but was victim of their own giant ballpark, until that shot. Freshman starter David Stilley gave a valiant effort, going into the 7th.
Great season for the Cougs. We'll be back with more later.
