(Austin, Texas-AP) -- Texas gets a three-game sweep of Oklahoma in Big 12 Conference baseball.

This afternoon, Ryan Brooks homered in the second inning to lead the Longhorns to a 5-to-2 win over the Sooners.

The victory moves Texas into a first-place tie in the conference standings with Baylor.

O-U took a 1-to-0 lead in the top of the first inning, but the Longhorns scored two runs on Sooner errors and a wild pitch in the bottom half of the inning to go ahead 2-to-1.

After the Sooners tied the game on an R-B-I-double from Jerome Godsey, Texas regained the lead with Brooks' first career home run to start the bottom of the second.

The Longhorns added runs in the third and fifth innings to seal the victory.
