via cdn1.sbnation.com

Texas A&M defeated Oklahoma in three straight low scoring games and improved their Big 12 record to 7-2.

The No. 4 ranked Texas A&M Aggies baseball team swept fellow Big 12 opponent and No. 22 ranked Oklahoma Sooners over this weekend. The sweep for Texas A&M gave them a five game winning streak and improved their conference record to 7-2.

All three games in the series were defensive battles as Texas A&M won 4-3, 5-2 and 5-3. The first game went to extra innings and in the bottom of the 12th inning the Aggies started off when Cole Lnakford walked on four straight pitches and then was replaced by Charlie Curl to pitch run. Curl advanced on a sacrifice bunt and then made it to third base on a wild pitch before scoring on a sacrifice fly by Krey Bratsen to get the win.

In the second game Texas A&M was led by Ross Stripling who pitched a complete game, giving up seven, struck out eight and allowed only two runs in the 5-2 win. The game was scoreless through four innings before Stripling gave up his only two runs in the top of the fifth, but Texas A&M responded by scoring a run to make it 2-1 after five. Texas A&M then came back in the bottom of the seventh to go up for good when Blake Allemand hit an RBI double to tie the game and then the game winner when Troy Stein scored on a sacrifice fly.

In Saturday's final game starting pitcher Rafael Pineda improved to 5-0 after pitching 5 and 2/3 innings giving up two runs, five hits and striking out one. Pineda did not need to be perfect as the Texas A&M offense lit up Oklahoma's starting pitcher Jonathan Gray for five runs over six innings. Texas A&M sealed the win by scoring three runs in the bottom of the fifth inning.
