Six-seeded Texas Longhorns baseball (34-20, 11-12 Big 12) kicks off its Big 12 tournament Wednesday night against the three-seeded Oklahoma Sooners (34-20, 12-11 Big 12).

With the win, fourth seeded WVU goes on to play the victor of No. 1 Texas Tech vs No. 8 Oklahoma State at 5 p.m. ET tomorrow. Clemens went yard again in the third after a leadoff-walk to push the UT lead to 5-0.

Game 3: No. 2 TCU vs.

OSU held a 5-2 lead after 4.5 innings, and the game resumed on Saturday afternoon. "Those guys can really execute pitches and they were on top of their game today".

I'd pick Texas Tech as the clear frontrunner here, but Oklahoma has already shown it can play with - and beat - the best teams in the conference.

With the loss, third-ranked Texas Tech (42-14) is set to take on at 9 a.m. Thursday against No. 5 seed Baylor, needing a win to stay alive. However, Oklahoma found themselves down early, giving up three runs in the first inning.

The Sooners scored one in the fourth and two more in the fifth to climb back in it but had a golden opportunity to do more damage in the fifth after putting runners on second and third with one out after Steele Walker's two-run single.

During the fourth inning, Jon Littrell singled and scored Simpson to extend the lead to three.

"What you've got to do is be careful you don't look too far ahead to find out who else is in your bracket and how the road to the championship is going to go", said Mazey, who opens this season's Big 12 tournament with Wednesday's 10 a.m. game (Fox College Sports) against Baylor at Chickasaw Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City. Lastly, Sunday, May 28 will be Big 12 Family Day.

There's even a scant chance of landing one of the NCAA's 16 regional host sites should the Mountaineers win the Big 12 championship. No. 6 Texas - 7:30 p.m.

Historically, the Longhorns' pitching depth makes Texas a serious contender for Big 12 tournament runs.

Kacy Clemens' 1st inning two-run home run marks a team leading 10th home run of the season. Battenfield retired the side in three of his six innings of work before Teel took the mound to open the seventh and worked a pair of scoreless frames. OU and Baylor are the only two Big 12 schools that have played in all 21 conference championships in Big 12 history.

The Sooners are 36-33 all-time in the Big 12 Championship.

Texas took this season's series with Oklahoma in April by winning the opening two games 5-3 and 9-3, respectively.

He started last Tuesday at home against Pitt and allowed no runs and three hits while striking out seven in 52/3 innings. OU will face TCU on Thursday at 12:30 CT at the Bricktown Ballpark in Oklahoma City.

Game 4: No. 3 Oklahoma vs.

Jacoby Ellsbury: Jacoby Ellsbury exits after colliding w/ wall
Royals: RHP Nate Karns was put on the 10-day DL because of nerve irritation in his pitching arm, a move retroactive to Sunday. Jedd Gyorko had three hits and drew a walk in the two-run second inning that gave the Cardinals the lead for good.

May backtracks on care funding policy with promise of cap
The Conservatives were seen as stronger on the economy and Brexit . The BBC's Laura Kuennsberg said: "You say Corbyn is indecisive".

Real title win "an incredible feeling" for Zidane
But they have adapted to his absence brilliantly, with a switch to a 4-4-2 diamond enabling them to suffocate teams in midfield. Luis Enrique won the treble with Barca in his first season in 2014-15 and the double of La Liga and Copa del Rey last term.
