    GoFrogs: TCU Drops Heartbreaker At Oklahoma
    NORMAN, Okla. – TCU battled back from a 4-0 deficit to tie the game at six in the ninth inning, but couldn't get an out in the bottom of the ninth as Oklahoma walked-off with a 7-6 victory on Friday night at L. Dale Mitchell Park.

    The Rundown
    TCU found itself staring at a 4-0 deficit after the first inning. The Sooners took advantage of a pair of TCU errors to score a trio of unearned runs.

    The Horned Frogs closed the gap to one, 4-3, with a two-out rally in the fourth that started with Adam Oviedo getting hit by a pitch. Four consecutive singles followed. Alex Isola, Bobby Goodloe and Hunter Wolfe each drove in a run in the frame.

    Oklahoma, as it did three times in the contest, responded with a run in the bottom of the inning to restore a two-run advantage.

    Jake Guenther's lead-off single in the fifth turned into another run as he scored on a bases-loaded wild pitch to make it a 5-4 ballgame. The Sooners got the run back on a two-out double from Brandon Zaragoza. It looked to be a two-run double, but upon review, Isola tagged the runner on the shoulder before he touched home to keep the deficit at just two, 6-4.

    Hunter Wolfe's one-out home run in the sixth pulled the Frogs back within one, 6-5, and Johnny Rizer's solo shot in the ninth completed the comeback.

    But it wasn't to be as a walk and a bunt single put the go-ahead run on second with nobody out in the bottom of the ninth. Brylie Ware ended the game with a base hit to left center.

    Nick Lodolo started and allowed six runs (three earned) on 10 hits in 5 1/3 innings. He didn't walk a batter and struck out five. Jake Eissler (3-3) took the loss in relief allowing a run on three hits, walking one and striking out one in 2 2/3 innings.
