Freshman Keilani Ricketts pitched two innings in relief to move to 15-5 on the year. The Cavaliers (13-11) stranded four runners, including three in scoring position. UVA got one hit against Oklahoma starter Kirsten Allen, a third inning single to left by Alison Pittman. Virginia starter Melanie Mitchell allowed four hits and two unearned runs. She struck out seven and walked one. Oklahoma got a 2-for-3 performance from senior Amber Flores. Sophomore Evan Sallis and Dobbs added OU’s only other hits. After stranding three base runners in the first six innings, OU got a break in the seventh when freshman Jessica Shults reached on a fielding error.

WP Blaire Luna 2-hitter. LP Jordan Taylor 10H, 8K
A night ago, Texas was upset by CS Fullerton, which ended a 13-game losing streak; today Texas upset Michigan, a Top 5 team all season — and another game in which an umpiring crew liberally festooned Taylor with illegal pitch calls.  (NCAA has instructed umpires to enforce the rule, but it has not been uniformly applied here, to Taylor or other pitchers).   Top 1st: Bennett drew a one-out walk, scored on Hooks’ 2-run HR.  The Horns added a run in the 2nd.  Feight singled to center, advanced on illegal pitch then on Craig’s sac bunt, scored on illegal pitch.  Hoagland singled, stole 2nd.  Top 4th, Feight singled, advanced to 2nd, illegal pitch; Hoagland singled with one out; Hoagland stole 2nd but Feight was out at home, 2-6-2.  Bennett drove in Hoagland, 4-0. Bottom 4th:  Shaw was hit by pitch, advanced on fielder’s choice and error, scored on Nemitz rbi.   Hooks walked to lead the 5th, scored with two out on throwing error by catcher. Bottom 7th:  Findlay, Viefhaus walked with two out, Findlay scored on fielding error by shortstop.
