Ricketts Powers Sooners To Win Against Baylor
WACO, Texas – Friday's game as the same story that the Sooners have seen many times, and yet it never gets any less satisfying for them: Keilani Ricketts dominated every aspect of the game.
In a 2-0 victory for Oklahoma over the Baylor Bears on Friday, Ricketts was the top performer on both sides of the ball once again.
She threw the complete game shutout in the circle, striking out 14 batters in the process and allowing four hits.
At the plate, Ricketts belted a solo homer to right field in the top of the seventh to break the scoreless tie and put her team up for good.
The other run of the day came later in the inning when pinch runner Erica Sampson advanced home, unearned, to make it 2-0.
Courtney Repka also threw a complete game for the Baylor Bears, but didn't fare quite as well as Ricketts, giving up the single earned run in the seventh.
The win kept an impressive streak going for the No. 7 Sooners, who have now won 16 straight.
OU and Baylor will continue their series Saturday in Waco with an 11 a.m. first pitch.
