Inside the Box Score

  • Senior first baseman Anthony Sequeira went 6-10 at the plate with two doubles in the opening series versus Memphis. It was the best three-game start to the season for a Golden Eagle since Jake Kahaulelio hit .600 in a three-game set against Missouri Southern in 2006.
  • With victories in the first two games of the season against Memphis, the 2015 Golden Eagle squad became the first to start the season 2-0 and won its opening series since 2009.
  • Noah Cummings earned the honor of hitting the first home run of the season in the third inning of game one against Memphis (3/14). He is the first freshman since Jose Trevino in 2012 to hit a home run for the Golden Eagles.
  • Friday's doubleheader against SIU Edwardsville marks the ninth meeting between the two programs. ORU leads the all-time series 7-2, taking two of three from the Cougars in 2011 at J.L. Johnson Stadium.
  • ORU is 16-9 all-time against current members of the Ohio Valley Conference.
  • SIU Edwardsville returns to Oklahoma for the second straight weekend. The Cougars dropped their opening day contest against Notre Dame in Norman, 7-6, losing the next two games to Oklahoma, 11-1 and 9-1.
  • Preseason All-OVC starting pitcher Ryan Daniels will start game one. Daniels was 14-7 with a 3.53 ERA last season.
