The Army Black Knights baseball program had their 2012 season come to an end Sunday, as Oklahoma's Max White collected a game-winning hit in the top of the 10th inning to help the Sooners earn a 2-1 victory in a 2012 NCAA Tournament game. The victory advances Oklahoma in the Charlottesville Regional, where they will play either top-seeded Virginia or No. 3 Appalachian St at 7 p.m. ET.
The Black Knights ended its season with a 41-14 record, despite having a few good chances of moving on. In the bottom of the ninth inning, Army had runners on first and second base with one out, however, failed to score the game-winning run after Harold Earls and Cody Murtle failed to collect hits.
Trailing 2-1 entering the bottom of the 10th, Army got the lead-off batter, Andrew Johnson, on base as he reached on a throwing error. However, again, the Black Knights failed to take advantage, as the Sooners got the first out with a failed bunt attempt and the final two outs with ground balls to the shortstop.
Army's offense spoiled a very solid outing by starting pitcher Logan Lee, who went seven innings allowing just one earned run on two hits. Reliever Gunnar Carroll was credited as the losing pitcher despite being solid -- three innings, allowing one run on three hits.
Oklahoma's starting pitcher Jonathan Gray was the one who shut down the Black Knight offense, as he tossed seven innings allowing just one run on six hits while striking out six batters.
