Oklahoma’s Jeff Scuderi singled to left field to drive in Aaron Ivey and the Sooners finished a three-run ninth-inning rally to beat Missouri, 4-3, and sweep the Tigers on Sunday.

Ole Sheldon started the rally for Oklahoma (22-11, 10-2 Big 12 Conference) with a single into center field. Eric Thornton doubled two plays later to score Sheldon and Matt Bose to tie. With no outs, Mark Alexander relieved Dustin Braud to pitch to Scuderi.

Garrett Broushuis pitched a strong eight innings for Missouri (21-12-1, 2-7), striking out three.

Oklahoma’s pitching struggled at the start with Ryan Mottern allowing three runs in the first inning before Sooners coach Larry Cochell replaced him with Charlie House.

Daniel McCutchen (3-1) earned the win, allowing one hit in four innings. Braud (3-2) was credited with the loss.
