A fantastic start from senior right-hander Nicole May and a two-homer effort from freshman outfielder Kasidi Pickering led the No. 2-ranked Oklahoma softball team to a 9-0 run-rule win over Cleveland State on Friday evening at the NCAA Norman Regional.

The Sooners (50-6) walked off CSU (22-25) with a two-run Tiare Jennings home run in the sixth. Jennings' two RBIs moved her into fifth in NCAA history, tying her with Sierra Romero at 304 runs batted in.

May improved to 13-2 on the season with 5.0 innings of three-hit ball, scattering three hits and walking none while striking out nine.

Pickering (3-for-3, 2 R, 2 HR, 2 RBI) piled up three hits alongside her first career multi-homer game. Rylie Boone (2-for-3, 2 R, 2B, 2 RBI), Ella Parker (2-for-4, R, 2B, 3 RBI) and Jennings (2-for-4, R, HR, 2 RBI) each added multi-hit games to support the Sooner effort.
