No. 5 Oklahoma (16-3) won both games at its Courtyard Marriott Tournament in run-rule fashion Saturday afternoon.

Oklahoma 10, Missouri State 0 (5 innings)

Paige Parker became the first player in OU history to throw two perfect games in one season as she retired all 15 MSU batters she faced. She struck out three and needed only 64 pitches to improve to 6-2 on the season. Parker joins Jennifer Stewart as the only two Sooners to throw multiple perfect games in their careers.

At the plate, Lauren Chamberlain went 2-for-3 with six runs batted in. She hit a three-run double in the third and hit a walk-off, three-run homer in the fifth. It was the 80th home run of her career, making her the sixth player to reach the 80-HR plateau in NCAA DI history.

Oklahoma 9, Samford (6 innings)

Kelsey Stevens matched a career-high with 12 strikeouts and Erin Miller went 4-for-4 with four extra base hits as OU ran its winning streak to six games.

Stevens threw the Sooners' fifth straight shutout and improved to 6-0. She reached 12 strikeouts for the third time in her career, though the previous two came when she was a freshman at Stanford.

Miller tied a school record with two triples and added a double and walk-off home run as she went 4-for-4. Miller had a career high in hits and also set a career high with six runs driven in.
