Putting up their two biggest offensive outputs of the season, the K-State baseball team took both games in a doubleheader on Sunday afternoon against Oakland, and swept the three-game series from the Golden Grizzlies.

Joe Flattery (1-1) earned the win on his longest outing of the season, going 6 2/3 innings, giving up two runs on six hits with a walk and two strikeouts.
