• The Cougars first foray into postseason since 1990 ended with a bang, a grand slam by Oklahoma’s Aaron Baker that traveled an estimated 500 feet. The blow capped a five-run seventh-inning rally that gave the Sooners a 7-2 win (FYI, they lost to Arkansas later in the evening, meaning the Razorbacks are moving on). Freshman starter David Stilley (pictured above) went six strong innings, one of the reasons Marbut feels the Cougars will be able to return to the NCAA next season. … We had a story this morning which included all the pertinent information. … The Seattle Times has this piece while the Kitsap Sun carried Howie Stalwick’s story. … About all I could find out of Oklahoma was this notebook as the focus there was on the Arkansas game.
