TULSA, Okla. (AP) _ Adam Younger's RBI single in the seventh inning lifted Oral Roberts over Bethune-Cookman 3-to-2 in college baseball action.

The Golden Eagles (14-12) led 2-to-1 in the fourth inning after Chad Rothford hit a solo home run. But Bethune-Cookman (13-20) knotted the score in the top of the fifth and it remained tied until Younger's hit two innings later.

Younger finished 2-for-3 with an RBI for Oral Roberts.

Chris Ashman (2-3) allowed seven hits and two runs, both earned, in 7 2/3s innings for the Golden Eagles. Chance Chapman got the save.

Hiram Burgos was assessed the loss after allowing two hits and one run in three and one-third innings.
