SAN DIEGO — Ryan Boldt didn’t have much to say Sunday night when San Diego Padre great Trevor Hoffman presented him with the 2012 Perfect Game All-American Classic MVP Award. It didn’t matter; his play had already said plenty.
The lanky 6-foot-1 centerfielder from Red Wing, Minnesota finished 2-for-3 with a triple to help the West squad secure a come-from-behind 7-6 victory at Petco Park Sunday night.
Boldt showed off his wheels roaming the spacious Petco outfield and when he slid into third base (pictured above) with an easy triple on a smash down the left field line.
“I try to use my speed as much as I can,” the Nebraska commit said. “I just try to put the ball in play and run as much as I can.” Continue reading Boldt Leads West to 7-6 Victory in All-American Classic
Second baseman Jack Mayfield’s bases loaded, 3-RBI triple in the bottom of the fourth inning gave Oklahoma (40-23) a four-run lead and the Sooners held on for a 5-4 win. For the second time in three seasons the Oklahoma Sooners eliminate the Virginia Cavaliers (39-19-1) from NCAA post season play.
“I was fortunate to have three runners on base and I just squared up and luckily we found a hole. I was just running hard and made it to third base and just helped my team out any way I could,” Mayfield said. Continue reading Game Five – Charlottesville Regional (Oklahoma 5, Virginia 4)

MALIBU, Calif. — Half the Oklahoma defenders were running toward their positions when they stopped in their tracks. Pepperdine was on the field celebrating a victory, even though it was only the middle of the seventh inning.
The Sooners looked around confused while Pepperdine coach Steve Rodriguez conferred with the umpires in front of home plate. The umpires then walked over and said something brief to Oklahoma coach Sunny Golloway before the home plate ump waved his arms. The game was over.

MALIBU, Calif — Pepperdine’s Joe Sever beat out a bases loaded infield single for the game-winning RBI and freshman Aaron Brown pitched around a leadoff single to close the door in the eighth inning as the Waves defeated No. 19 Oklahoma 7-6 in a travel curfew shortened game Sunday afternoon at Eddy D.

MALIBU, CA — Scott Frazier showed why he is one of the top sophomore prospects Saturday afternoon at Eddy D. Field Stadium. Frazier dominated No. 19 Oklahoma to help Pepperdine knock off the Sooners 10-0.
Frazier pitched seven scoreless innings for the Waves (1-1). He scattered five hits and struck out six while only walking one. Frazier fared much better than his counterpart Jonathan Gray, also considered one of the top sophomore pitching prospects. Gray allowed only two hits, but lasted only 2 2/3 innings for Oklahoma (1-1). He struggled mightily with his control walking six batters, mainly because he couldn’t command his fastball.
