Sooners win to set up deciding game with Virginia

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) - Cody Reine homered twice and drove in five runs and Oklahoma beat Virginia 10-7 Sunday to force a decisive third game in the Charlottesville Super Regional.

The teams will meet Monday night, with the winner heading to the College World Series.

Reine hit a three-run home run, his seventh, to cap a four-run first for the Sooners (48-16), and a two-run shot in the fifth after the Cavaliers had pulled to 8-7.

Virginia (51-13), trying to clinch its second consecutive trip to Omaha, squandered several chances for a big inning, likely leaving their hopes in the hands of freshman Brendan Kline on Monday. Kline pitched 5 1-3 strong innings in the decisive game of the Charlottesville Regional last Monday as Virginia beat St. John's 5-3.

The Sooners will likely counter with Bobby Shore (9-4).
