Well, we answered with 4 runs of our own in the bottom of the inning, thanks to Chamberlain's bases-clearing double.

I was getting plenty nervous after we blew a 6-1 lead. Thankfully, our bats woke up in time to put some insurance up that Michelle can breathe easy.

I personally think that Gasso left a struggling Keilani in way too long, especially with a pitcher like Gascoigne sitting in the bullpen... had we lost, I'd have been blaming Patty...

Keilani wasn't real sharp today, even before she blew up. Curiously, both teams started rallies with two out in the sixth.

This game would have been over after five if Shelby and Shults were hitting anything right now. Both have started the NCAAs very slowly. We left a lot of runners on base.

rpi
1 Oklahoma
25 Arkansas
86 Fordham
200 Marist

I think #25 is a rather bad draw for a #1 seed.

Louisiana-Lafayette best LSU. Texas run-ruled South Carolina. UAB beat Louisville. Some seeds are going down. Baylor is killing A&M, 5-0

For those who didn't watch, Arkansas should have been out in the top of the sixth without scoring a run.
Jessica Vest caught a popup and threw to first to get the runner. The umpire called the runner safe, but the replay clearly showed that the ball beat the runner. The next Hog batter hit a home run and Arkansas went on to score two more runs before Gascoine got the inning over with.
The women who were announcing for ESPN didn't have a clue. In the bottom of the sixth, Williams didn't bat. Javen Henson hit for her and Henson started the two-out rally and scored the seventh OU run, not Williams. The announcers never picked up on that even though Williams bats left-handed and Henson bats righty.

So, for those of you who are watching the game, (I'm not, following along on GameTracker) the action seems to have reached a stoppage. I am assuming that perhaps a rain delay is responsible - - anyone confirm?

The score is OU 12 - 0 in the bottom of the 4th inning. Arkansas is batting.

OU scored 41 in three games. The opposition scored 6. Lauren Chamberlain had 13 rbis.

The biggest key of today was that Arkansas committed several errors.

I've never found it to be very reliable.

Obviously, Arkansas didn't challenge us too much, due primarily to self-inflicted mistakes.

This OU team, however, needs to step up the level of their play when meeting tougher competition; better teams, like Alabama, will make us pay. Keilani, for example is, IMO, nowhere nearly as dominating as she was in the postseason last year, neither on the mound or at the plate.

For the most part, however, the rest of the team is playing very well. I hope that Keilani can rise to last year's level of play as we go further into the postseason.

Keilani opened the season with no hit shutouts of Stanford and Oregon, both of whom are top twenty programs. Oregon is #4. But, it is about when you are on stride, and when you aren't. This wasn't Keilani's week.

Let's take a look at a couple of other players to get a picture of slumps and streaks. Right now, Brittany and Lauren could hit if the pitcher were throwing golf balls. They are killing the ball. Lauren was something like an 800 hitter with 13 rbis in three games. Did they ever get Brittany out?

A couple of weeks ago against Texas, Lauren was about 0 for 13 and struck out about five times. She couldn't hit the ball out of the infield. Pendley was actually benched for a game. Then, she hit two home runs in the third Texas game. But, Lauren has had some problems in recent weeks. You wouldn't know it this weekend.

Even great players have streaks and slumps. The team that wins has enough great players to overcome those slumps by others. But, you never know what next weekend will bring. Keilani may get her control back and blow away the next team.

Baylor now leads 9 -5 in the 6th inning.

I'll preface this statement by saying I'm not a softball expert by any means. I've seen Baylor hit 2 long fly balls that weren't home runs, yet were over the heads of the Texas A&M outfielder. If I were a coach, I think that would irritate me kind of like serving the ball into the net in volleyball.
