I will be providing recaps of each game as the weekend goes along. Up first today was the Rice Owls and the Oklahoma Sooners.
Rice freshman Chad Mozingo went 3-for-4 with a double, three runs scored and an RBI and sophomore pitcher Ryan Berry was sharp on the mound to lead the ninth-ranked Rice baseball team to a 7-2 victory over Oklahoma in the opening game of the Houston College Classic Tournament Friday afternoon at Minute Maid Park in downtown Houston.
The Owls collected 12 hits and scored in five of the nine innings on the way to the team’s fourth-straight win of the season. While the Blue & Gray chipped away for single runs in four of the frames, Berry scattered five hits and three walks in 6.2 innings of work. The right-hander from nearby Humble, Tex., matched his season-high with eight strikeouts to move to 1-0 on the young season.
