OMAHA, Nebraska -

The Oklahoma baseball team flexed its muscles again in Omaha on Father's Day, this time knocking Notre Dame out of the winners' bracket to advance to the Men's College World Series Semifinals.

Sooners pitcher Cade Horton, who earned a career-high 11 strikeouts through his six innings on the mound, led the way for Oklahoma. He gave up only 2 runs as the Sooners' offense put up 5.

That Sooners' offense was spearheaded by shortstop Peyton Graham and center fielder Tanner Tredaway, who reached base a combined 7 times in 8 attempts. The pair were responsible for 2 RBI's and 3 runs.

The Sooners will face the winner of Notre Dame and Texas A&M at 1 p.m. on Wednesday.
