Oklahoma Defeats Arkansas 14-1 & Advances On To The Super Regionals

Oklahoma came into Sunday's game with the luxury knowing they had two games if they needed it, but as they've done all year long this team wasn't taking anything for granted.

The Sooners quickly jumped out to a 1-0 lead in the first inning before putting up five runs in the third, six more in the fourth, and two in the fifth to punch their ticket into the Super Regionals.

On a day where their ace Keilani Ricketts did not have her best stuff getting pulled after just two and two-thirds, the OU offense had her back and made quick work of Arkansas. As she has done a number of times this season, Michelle Gascoigne came on in relief of Ricketts and shut down the opponent allowing just one hit (a solo home run).

We mentioned the offense and there was certainly a lot of it on Sunday. Lauren Chamberlain continues to prove why she is the best hitter in the sport launching a three run home run over the center field bleachers. Chamberlain now has 27 home runs on the season and 57 for her career (she's just a sophomore, by the way) which moves her into sole possession of second place on the all-time OU record books. Big 12 Player of the Year Shelby Pendley went 2-for-4 with three RBI and a home run of her own. Javen Henson also hit her first home run on the season, a two run shot in the fifth.

With the win, Oklahoma advances on to the Super Regionals and will face the winner of Sunday's match-up between Texas A&M and Baylor.
