The OU baseball team took two games from the University of Arkansas-Little Rock, Tuesday. The Sooners won the first game of the double-header 11-7, on the strength of a big game by sophomore outfielder Casey Johnson. Johnson was 3-for-5 with four runs batted in. 
The second game saw the Sooners dominate the Trojans of UA-LR, winning 16-6 in 8 innings, as the game was shortened due to the run-rule.
The two wins brought the No. 16 Sooners to 9-3 on the season, heading in to one of their biggest weekends of early season play.
OU will now remain at home to face UCLA this weekend for three-game set which will be their first real home test this season. 
Johnson said that UCLA is a good team, that brings to the table several solid pitchers.
"UCLA is a really solid club... with a number of power arms," Johnson said.
The Sooners face the Bruins Friday, at 3 p.m.
