Finney pitched the fourth in game two. Threw 14 pitches, 13 for strikes. Had an infield hit, two strikeouts, and a grounder to short.

Finney had two more strikeouts in the fifth as OU wins in a run-ruled 9-0 game against Radford. Brit also ended the top of the fifth for OU with a grounder to third. So, she is one for three at the plate this year.

Our guys played solid and consistent. And confident. Was hoping for run rule. Didn't come - though in the next game against Radford it did. ?

Great news! Wish that was televised!

Did they ever! This team just keeps growing and growing. It's amazing to think this starting team is mostly freshmen/sophomores!

I think the biggest issue is playing focused every game. That's what Patty is teaching them. The Arkie game should have been run-rule too and that was why Patty wasn't too happy after that game. When they are all focused, look out!

Jayden struck out twelve in a complete game 2-0 win over Lipscomb. Pendley left after being hit in the nose with a pitch. She was down for a while. Romero took the day off, except that she came on as the DH late. Arnold and Hatfield each singled home runners for the two runs. Jayden is now 7-0.

OU beats Lipscomb 2-0. We have won 13 in a row now.

Outstanding game by Jayden!

OU 9, 9, 2

Tennessee 0
Radford 0
Lipscomb 0

Since Bama took two of three from Kentucky this weekend, Bama and Tennessee are now tied for third at 12-6. Florida and Auburn are both 15-3.

Re: Softball
 
Why wasn't the Tennessee game a run rule? First, Ou was up 8-0 and then OU was up 9-0 and they keep playing - all 7 innings. ?

sunnyjim48 04-25-2016 01:28 AM

Re: Softball
 
Because we scored the eighth and ninth runs in the top of the seventh inning. That meant Tennessee got to bat in the bottom of the inning. You get to complete the inning if you are the home team.

No TV, of course, and I didn't get to listen to the radio broadcast, but Chestnut's stat line was really outstanding. The freshman gave up just three hits, struck out 12 and issued zero free passes.

That last number is probably the most significant. If Jayden's control remains that sharp through the rest of the regular/post season, the Sooners will be hard to beat. Not many teams can trot out four pitchers with the ability of Parker, Chestnut, Stevens and Finney. Also, it will require a collapse of epic proportions to prevent our Sooners from qualifying to host a regional and, if they hold serve, a super regional.

Any news on Pendley? Haven't seen any updates since sybarite reported on this board that she was hit in the nose by the Lipscomb pitcher and had to leave the game.

Also, the new RPI rankings should come out later today. Can't wait to see if our clean sweep at Knoxville moves us up a spot to #2.

Has there been a statement from the team as to the reason that Sydney has
not played a couple of games? I believe she didn't play in one and then did and then didn't? Do you know if she has tweaked something and this is precautionary?

I think that since the conference started she has thrown 15.4 innings and only allowed 8 hits, 2 walks and 2 earned runs for a 0.86 era.

I don't think there is any way we overtake Florida or Michigan in the RPI. And with Bama only winning 2 of 3 from Kentucky we should be safe. However #5 Auburn sweep Georgia and will probably move up. Hopefully not enough to pass the Sooners.

OU still #3 in the RPI behind Florida and Michigan and in front of Auburn and Alabama.

Sydney tweaked her knee but played on Saturday against Tennessee and hit on Sunday. I expect she will be fine.

You're right, of course, but that's still good news. I really didn't expect us to overtake UF or Michigan, but I would imagine we may have widened the gap over the teams that are behind us. The RPI sites that I view only show the position that each team is ranked; none of them give an actual RPI.

The new rankings that will come out tomorrow may move us up some from the No. 9. Of course, that really isn't as big a factor as the RPI. As long as we remain in or around the top 10, our strong RPI should keep us where we want to be.

sybarite 04-25-2016 03:07 PM

Re: Softball
 
If the rpi were to be used exactly as it now stands, these would be the anticipated super-regionals.

UCLA at Florida
LSU at Michigan
Baylor at Oklahoma
Tennessee at Alabama
Kentucky at Auburn
Missouri at James Madison
Louisiana-Lafayette at Oregon
Florida State at Washington

If these were the teams, I would expect Baylor to end up at Bama or Auburn rather than OU. OU might get Missouri. Louisiana-Lafayette, having already played Oregon and Florida, might be sent to Auburn or Alabama. Oregon might end up with Kentucky or Tennessee with Washington getting the other. This is simply trying to avoid conference rematches.

I think it is imperative that OU refrain from losing. We simply don't have a good opponent left that will help our rpi overcome a loss. We have benefited from the way some of our opponents have played. Bama and Tennessee are tied for third in the SEC. UCLA is second, and Utah is third, in the Pacific Twelve. Minnesota and Michigan are running away with the Big Ten. I think we are 8-4 against the top 25 and 17-7 against the top 50. We don't have a bad loss, Kansas (#42) being our worst loss.

Re: Softball
 
I think the one thing that is surprising happened last week. OU swept Texas at home and moved from #7 to #3. Texas had an RPI of #36. I am hoping that #36 Tulsa and #40 OSU hold the same effect. Texas Tech is #82 and Iowa State is #172. We will find out after this weekend. I expect OU will drop behind Bama after this week. We need Tennessee and Auburn to split this week.
