GAME NOTES (by Spy from Gametracker and college sources) 
Oklahoma State def Georgia 1-0. 
Gearhart hbp; advanced to 2nd, scored on Hamilton single.  With two on, teo out, Schlopy struck out.

Georgia 1, Oklahoma 0. Schlopy was the hero, at bat and in the field.  Scoreless through 6, Pauly singled with one out in the Georgia 7th.  With two out, Schlopy tripled, 1-0 Georgia.  In the bottom, Jones led with a walk.  With one out, Dobbs flied out deep to center,the highlight reel catch made by Schlopy.  The powerfull Sooners were outhit 6-3 which became a haringer for the next game versus Hawaii.  (Even some umpires agreed with observers that the fences on Fenway Field seemed deeper than other fields but Spy could not confirm this with Field of Dreams officials.)

Fordham 2, Texas 1.  Knotted at one-apiece, the Rams won on Leuty’s two-out walkoff home run  to left field.

Hawaii 4, Oklahoma 1.  Fans were treated to pitching artistry by the Ricketts sisters — Hawaii’s Stephanie was notching 65-69 mph on the radar, with a few timely change-ups; Oklahoma’s Keilani was hurling at 69-71 mph, also with a few timely changeups.  But, Keilani didn’t enter the game until Oklahoma was down 3-0 in the 4th, and the Sooners just couldn’t solve Stephanie who allowed just six hits – Hawaii had ten off three Sooner hurlers.  In the 2nd, Kliebenstein slugged a solo HR off Gascoigne.  The Sooners left the bases loaded.  In the Hawaii 3rd, Iwata doukbled with one out; Aguirre singled; rbi.  Gonzales singled, rbi.  Allee Allen relieved Gascoigne.  But Robinson and Pagaduan tagged her for singles, and Keilani relieved.  OU got on the board bottom 5th.  With two out, Turang singled; Martinez reached on an error; Williams drove in the Oklahoma run.  Again, the Sooners left the bases loaded.  Hawaii scored its final run, top 7th.  Majam singled; with two out, Aguire doubled in the fourth run.  The sisters are very competitive; Stephanie struck out Keilani with 67mph pitches before being tagged for a single in the 6th.

Oklahoma State def Santa Barbara 9-1.  The Cowgirls, playing their best ball, broke a 1-1 tie with Garcia’s grand slam in the 3rd.  Garcia singled in another run in the 4th.  OSU reached run-rule in the 5th on Hamilton’s rbi single and Ward’s two run single.

Tennessee 2, UCSB 0.  In a pitcher’s duel between No. 8 Tennessee’s (10-2) Ivy Renfroe and UCSB’s Andriana Collins on Thursday afternoon at the Cathedral City Classic in Cathedral City, Calif., UT’s sophomore came out on top by firing a complete-game, three-hit shutout with a career-high 11 strikeouts to help lead the Big Orange past the Gauchos, 2-0. Collins had entered the contest for UCSB in possession of an outstanding 0.91 ERA and a 4-2 record from the circle and was as advertised, limiting UT’s powerful offense to six total hits. The big offensive blow came off the bat of Tennessee sophomore second baseman Lauren Gibson.  The Pasadena, Md., native delivered a clutch one-out, two-RBI single back through the middle during the fourth inning to mark the lone scoring.  Sophomore right fielder Kat Dotson and junior first baseman Shelby Burchell each registered 2-for-3 efforts at the plate, while sophomore left fielder Raven Chavanne was 1-for-3 with her team-best eighth stolen base of the season.  Burchell continues to guide the Big Orange in season batting average, now sitting at .552 overall.

Florida and Texas played an epic nine-inning game which the Gators won, 6-5. The losses dropped UT to 10-2 on the year, and Florida moved to 11-0. Sophomore All-America hurler Blaire Luna (6-1) tossed a gem in the nightcap, scattering eight hits in 8.2 innings of work and allowing four earned runs, while fanning 14 and walking four. Florida’s Stephanie Brombacher did the bulk of the work for the Gators, firing 8.1 innings and allowing five runs (two earned) before giving way to reliever Hannah Rogers (5-0) who earned the win after recording the final two outs. The Horns touched Brombacher for the only five runs (two earned) she has allowed in 39.1 innings in 2011. Texas leapt out to an early 2-0 lead against Florida, using a leadoff walk by junior third baseman Nadia Taylor in the second to set the table for senior designated player Shelby Savony’s two-run homer. Luna kept the Gators at bay through the first five frames before they rallied for three runs in the sixth to claim the lead. Centerfielder Michelle Moultrie drew a walk to start the frame, moved to third on a stolen base and a wild pitch and came home on Kelsey Bruder’s RBI fielder’s choice. Florida forged ahead when rightfielder Brittany Schutte launched a two-run home to rightfield later in the inning to move the score to 3-2. Texas answered in the top of the seventh, taking advantage of a leadoff single by sophomore leftfielder Torie Schmidt to start the frame. Schmidt advanced into scoring position on a sacrifice and raced home when freshman shortstop Taylor Thom reached on an error and narrowly missed taking three bases and scoring on the same play. Hoagland stepped to the plate with two outs and launched her sixth home run of the year to put the Horns back on top, 4-3. In the bottom of the seventh, UF used a leadoff single and a pair of sacrifice bunts to set the table for Moultrie who evened the game at four with an RBI triple that barely escaped UT centerfielder Brejae Washington.  Texas responded in the eighth when international tie-break rules put Lexy Bennett on base to start the frame. She moved to second a sacrifice bunt and scored on Taylor’s sacrifice fly to put UT ahead, 5-4. Bruder drove home the ITB-placed runner for the Gators to start the eighth, evening the game at five. Texas failed to score in the ninth, but retired the first two UF batters in the bottom of the frame before Moultrie struck again with a single that lifted Florida to a 6-5 win.  (report by Spencer Kitley, Texas)
