No. 8 Texas beats Oklahoma, 7-1, behind Pete Hansen gem

Left-hander Pete Hansen went eight innings with a season-high 12 strikeouts as the No. 8 Texas Longhorns controlled the proceedings from the third inning on in a 7-1 win over the Oklahoma Sooners on Friday at Globe Life Field in Arlington.

Hansen allowed a run in the first inning on two hits, but didn’t allow a single hit after that opening frame, using his trademark command to both sides of the plate to flummox Oklahoma hitters, who finished 2-of-28 for a .071 batting average. The Sooners only had one at bat with a runner in scoring position.
