ORU Overcomes Weather, Oakland, To Win Series Opener

A two hour rain delay could not derail the Oral Roberts Golden Eagles Friday night.

ORU took game one of the four game road series 7-5, thanks to two home runs from OF Nick Baligod.

Oakland made it interesting in the ninth inning, scoring three runs to cut the deficit to just two runs.{} The Golden Grizzlies brought the winning run to the plate, but ORU pitcher Joe Spring got the third out to end the game.

Saturday features a double-header between the two teams, beginning at 11am.
