MALIBU, California – After a solid start to the season on Friday, Saturday's game for the Sooners told a bit of a different story.

Oklahoma could neither get anything going at the plate nor control the Pepperdine Waves in a 10-0 shutout Saturday in California.

OU picked up five hits in the game but never seriously threatened Pepperdine, who spread its offense out over a number of innings.

The Waves got their first run of the game in the third inning as Joe Sever worked his way around the bases and home.

But the fourth inning was when their offense really took off, with Sever and two others coming home in a drawn-out stretch of base hits to lead 4-0.

Pepperdine racked up a total of six runs in the final three innings of the game as well, piling it on in a game that never really seemed in question.

Jonathan Gray picked up the loss on the mound for OU in a game where the Sooners went through five pitchers, each giving up at least one run and two hits.

Scott Frazier got the win for the Waves, throwing seven innings and giving up all five of the Sooners' hits.

OU and Pepperdine will start the series-deciding third game on Sunday at 1 p.m. in Malibu, Calif.
