CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. (AP) — Braxton Douthit pitched a complete-game four-hitter, Bryce Madron drove in four runs, and Oklahoma routed Army 10-1 on Saturday in a loser-out game at the Charlottesville Regional.

Douthit allowed Ross Friedrick’s sacrifice fly in the sixth inning but otherwise shut down the Black Knights, striking out seven. He walked four and threw one wild pitch.

Madron had a two-run triple in OU’s five-run fifth inning. Kendall Pettis had a two-run double in the inning and Anthony Mackenzie added a run-scoring single.

Madron also had an RBI-double in the first inning and a sacrifice fly in the third. Oklahoma’s leadoff hitter, John Spikerman, had two singles, stole three bases, and scored three runs.

No. 3-seed Oklahoma (32-27) advances to a Sunday game against the loser of Saturday’s later game between top-seeded regional host Virginia and No. 2-seed East Carolina.

Army’s Mike Ruggieri (9-2) allowed six hits and five runs in four-plus innings.

The Black Knights (38-18) lost their two regional games by a combined score of 25-2.
