OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) _ Aaron Baker and Bryant Hernandez had two RBIs each and Oklahoma pitchers combined for six hits to beat Missouri 7-to-2 in the Big 12 tournament.
The second-seeded Tigers (39-15) led 1-to-0 after Aaron Senne scored on an error by center fielder Aaron Ivey Wednesday. But RBIs by Joe Dunigan and Jackson Williams in the top of the third put the Sooners (33-23) ahead 2-1 and Oklahoma wouldn't trail again.
After Hernandez homered in the fourth, the Tigers got one more run from an RBI double by Senne, who finished 2-for-4.
Baker's double to left center field widened OU's advantage to 6-2 in the fifth and Hernandez's second RBI, a sacrifice fly in the eighth, wrapped up scoring.
Heath Taylor (9-3) allowed one hit and no runs in four innings of relief for the Sooners.
Stephan Holst (2-2) allowed eight hits and three runs in three and two-thirds innings.
