OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Senior left-hander Ross Vance held Oklahoma to one hit over the last 8 2/3 innings and Kyle Davis hit a three-run homer, leading West Virginia to a 6-0 victory over Oklahoma in the Big 12 tournament Wednesday.

Vance took over with one out in the first inning after starter Michael Grove injured his leg when he fielded a sacrifice bunt and tagged out Ben Hollas. Vance (7-3) struck out seven and walked three, and the Sooners managed only two hits for the game.

The Mountaineers (34-21) play Thursday afternoon against Texas Tech. The Sooners (28-26-1) meet Kansas State in a morning elimination game.

Davis’ team-leading ninth home run highlighted West Virginia’s four-run fourth inning against Jake Irvin (6-2). The freshman right-hander allowed eight hits and walked four in 3 2/3 innings.

Cole Austin and KC Huth had two hits apiece for the Mountaineers.
