2012 College Baseball Tournament, Appalachian State Vs. Oklahoma: Mountaineers Grab 5-4 Win In Makeup Game

In the first-ever meeting between the schools, Appalachian State upended Oklahoma, 5-4 on Saturday afternoon in the second game of the Charlottesville Regional at Davenport Field. To a large degree, credit Ryan Arrowood for that.

The Appalachian State starter lasted seven and two-third innings, allowing just two hits, three walks and one run. Moreover, he struck out nine batters, to help the Mountaineers work their way to an 3-0 lead through the first seven innings of Friday's makeup game. The Mountaineers, the No. 3 seed in the regional, were originally scheduled to face the Sooners at 8 p.m. EST the day prior.

Things did get much closer during the bottom of the ninth inning. Trailing 5-1, Oklahoma marched out, totaling four runs over the course of the inning to narrow the lead to just one run. But with a runner on second with two outs, Max White flied out and the Mountaineers preserved the win.
