NORMAN, Oklahoma – University of Oklahoma baseball coach Sunny Golloway was in the stands for the Heartland Classic Friday, and Sooner commit Cale Shambaugh put on a show for him. Team Oklahoma played two games, and both ended with walk-off home runs by Shambaugh.

In the first game of the day against Ohio, Team Oklahoma got off to a very quick start. After one run was already in, Cale Coshow drove in another two with a home run to give Oklahoma 3-0 lead after the first inning.

Ohio slowly chipped away at the lead until finally taking the advantage 5-3 in the seventh inning. In the bottom of the inning, Shambaugh stepped to the plate with two runners on board and launched a walk-off home run to win it 6-5.

If that wasn’t enough, Shambaugh repeated the feat in Oklahoma’s second game against Texas. In what was a pitcher’s duel all game, Oklahoma led 1-0 for the majority of the game. But Texas tied it with a sacrifice fly in the sixth inning.

Shambaugh stepped to the plate again in the bottom of the seventh with the game still tied, and again blasted a game-winning home run.

The two-game sweep will send Oklahoma into a rematch with Texas in the third-place game at 3 p.m. Saturday at L. Dale Mitchell Park. Georgia and Maryland will square off in the title game at 6 p.m.
