TULSA -- Oral Roberts University took advantage of BYU with a 10-run third inning Friday night en route to a 16-1 victory.

A two-run homer in the first and a three-run homer in the 10-run third inning, both by Brian Van Kirk did the bulk of the damage.

Golden Eagle southpaw Michael Jarman threw a no-hit, shutout through five-plus innings.

BYU didn't register a hit until the sixth inning when Sean McNaughton doubled with two outs, while teammate Michael Bowen ran to third after getting aboard with a walk. Bowen scored on a passed ball. Bowen got BYU's second hit in the ninth.

McNaughton's double continued his current hitting streak to nine games, but teammate Kent Walton had his streak stopped at 15 games.

The Cougars fall to 12-14, while ORU improves to 15-6 going into Saturday afternoon's final contest of the three-game series.
