NORMAN, Oklahoma -

The Oklahoma Sooners advanced to the Super Regional of the NCAA Tournament Sunday by knocking off the Oregon State Beavers 6-0, thanks to yet another lights-out performance from Keilani Ricketts.

The junior pitcher hurled a complete-game for the Sooners, giving up just two hits and striking out 10 batters in the win. Marina Denmore was credited with a loss, pitching 4.1 innings for Oregon State, allowing five earned runs on six hits.

Oklahoma started the scoring off early, scoring four of its runs in the top of the first.

A pair of walks and a fielder's choice loaded the bases with one out on the board loaded the bases and set the table for Jessica Shults. The junior catcher then went yard over the right field wall for a grand slam to take a 4-0 advantage.

Shults tagged on a solo home run in the top of the fifth, and three batters later, Katie Norris singled through the left side to take a 6-0 lead late in the contest.

Oklahoma will now advance to the NCAA Super Regional to host the Arizona Wildcats, the same team the Sooners eliminated 2-0 a season ago in Tucson, Arizona.
