Freshman third baseman Garrett Buechele had his first career home run Tuesday night at L. Dale Mitchell Park.
With three hits and three RBIs, Buechele helped lead the Sooners in a 12-6 win over Central Arkansas.
“I honestly didn’t think it was going to get out,” Buechele said. “I saw it go over and I was pretty excited because a bunch of guys on the team have been giving me trouble about not getting [a home run] yet so it felt pretty good to get that one out of the way.”
The Sooners are 21-5 overall and 2-1 in the Big 12.
