NCAA Baseball Tournament 2012, Charlottesville Regional: Oklahoma Holds Off Virginia, 5-4

The Oklahoma Sooners led most of the way in their Charlottesville Regional game with the University of Virginia, but a ninth inning rally by the host Cavaliers fell short as Oklahoma advanced past Virginia by a final score of 5-4.

The Sooners entered the top of the ninth inning with a 5-1 run when Keith Werman started the ninth inning rally with an RBI single from the bottom of the lineup that brought in Nate Irving to cut the score to 5-2.

From there, the next two UVA batters would get on base (Chris Taylor and Colin Harrington) and Stephen Bruno would bring them home with an RBI double to cut the score to 5-4. But that's where the rally would unfortunately end and the Cavaliers would find themselves coming up just a tad bit short.

With the loss, Virginia is now eliminated from the tournament and the Sooners will move on to play the 2-0 Appalachian State Mountaineers in the Regional final.
