(Tulsa-AP) -- Oral Roberts is back in action today following a 6-to-1 loss to Southern Utah in the Mid-Continent Conference tournament.

O-R-U plays Youngstown State this afternoon. Valparaiso will meet Southern Utah later today. And Oakland will take on the O-R-U-Youngstown winner tonight.

Last night, Southern Utah pitcher Justin Kittrell scattered five hits and gave up just one run -- an eighth-inning home run to Jeff Stallings.

The victory kept Southern Utah alive in the double elimination event. It was O-R-U's first tournament loss and cut the Golden Eagles 17-game winning streak.

Robert Posey suffered his first loss for O-R-U and fell to 5-and-1.
