SOONERS BLANK JACKETS, 12-0

LAKE BUENA VISTA, Fla. - Casey Bookout went 4-for-4 with a pair of runs batted in, while Kyle Denney and Jared Hoerman combined on a six-hit shutout as Oklahoma handed No. 2 Georgia Tech its second straight defeat, 12-0, Saturday at the ACC/Disney Baseball Blast.

The Sooners, who last met Tech in the championship game of the 1994 College World Series, a 13-5 Oklahoma win, improved to 2-0 this season and 5-0 all-time against the Yellow Jackets. Tech's loss dropped the ACC teams to 0-5 in the Disney Blast with four games to play. Virginia dropped an 11-2 decision to Auburn earlier in the day.

Hoerman, 2-0, snuffed out Tech's best threat to score after relieving Denney with one out in the fifth, a Tech runner on third and no score. Tech attempted a suicide squeeze play, but Matthew Boggs popped up his bunt attempt to third baseman Tommy Whiteman, who tossed back to shortstop Zach Lekse covering third for the inning-ending double play.

On Oklahoma's next turn at bat in the sixth, Bookout and Richard Park gave the Sooners the only runs they would need with back-to-back RBI singles. Pinch-hitter Chad Cochell delivered a two-run single in the eighth for a 4-0 Oklahoma lead, and the Sooners erupted for eight more runs in the ninth, sparked by Sean Murphy's two-run homer.

Denney was solid in his start for the Sooners, allowing four hits and a walk while fanning five in 4 1/3 innings. Hoerman was better, permitting just two hits and a walk with two strikeouts over the final 4 2/3 innings.

Cory Vance scattered eight hits over six innings with no walks and four strikeouts, but took the loss in his first start of the season for the Jackets. The Sooners did most of their damage against freshman Brad Busbin, who walked four and allowed four hits and seven runs in 2 1/3 innings.
