Bobby Shore pitched four-hit ball for eight innings, Cody Reine hit two three-run homers and Oklahoma pounded Virginia 11-0 on Monday night to earn its first trip to the College World Series in 15 years.
Reine, who also homered twice Sunday, went deep in the first and
eighth. The Sooners (49-16) also got solo shots from Cameron
Seitzer and Tyler Ogle.
Shore (10-4) did not allow a baserunner past first base. He
struck out five and walked two.
The Cavaliers (51-14), seeded fifth nationally, lost consecutive
games for the first time this season and were denied a second
consecutive trip to Omaha.
The Sooners are headed to the College World Series for the first
time since 1995 and 10th overall. They won it all in 1951 and 1994.
