Big 12 Championship, Game One: Oklahoma 2, Baylor 0

Shaky start, but Jonathan Gray comes through. - Kyle Laferriere-US PRESSWIRE

The Sooners come out on top of a pitcher's duel that didn't look like it was going to be one early.

Jonathan Gray's day got off to a rocky start, as he opened the game allowing a lead-off walk and throwing six straight pitches out of the strike zone.

Nothing to worry about. Gray settled down after that, and while he wasn't at his sharpest he did manage to silence the Bear bats on the way to a complete-game 2-0 victory.

After Gray escaped the top of the first unscathed, Craig Aikin led off with a single and scored immediately afterward on a Jack Mayfield double.

The Sooners added another tally in the fourth when a string of singles by Max White, Matt Oberste, and Hector Lorenzana resulted in a second run. After that, it was all arms as Gray and his Baylor counterpart, Dillon Newman, mowed through the opposition.

Tomorrow, the Sooners face Texas Tech at 9am; Baylor will meet the Wildcats at 12:30 CT. Next up today, K-State and the Red Raiders face one another at about 3:15 CT.
