A showdown between two very talented pitchers which lived up to advance expectations.  Mineau, one of the nation’s premier strikeout artists, generally kept the powerful Sooner bats at bay, but Ricketts, matched her K for K.  Shults doubled with two out in the 1st; stranded.  Fordham 1st: Pellechio singled after two strikeouts; Fisher was hbp, and Wiggins bezt out an infield hit, loading the bases.  But, Shager hit into a fielder’s choice at 3rd, the out at home.  OU 2nd: Mineau struck out the side.  Bottom: Ricketts fanned two of three.  The Sooners did nothing in the 3rd, but the Rams threatened again.  Dearborn led with a single to center; LaBovick followed with a single to right.  Pellochio looked at a third strike, and Fisher ground into a double play, lining to Flores at 2nd.  Sooner 4th: after two popups, Vandever jacked a home run over the fence in left center.  Nix walked but was stranded.;  Rams down in order.  Mineau fanned 2 of 3 in the OU 5th.  Callahan reached on a fielder’s choice,but was forced by Dearborn, Ricketts fanning two.  The 6th looked like a big Sooner inning: Huey led with a single to center; with one out, Shults slashed a single to right; with two out, Nix hit a line drive to left.  Fisher walked in the Rams sixth and was stranded.  Pinch hitter Jones doubled for OU to lead the 7th, but was left.  The Rams went down in order in their 7th, Richards grounded out to short, one of the best defensive plays we’ve seen Karolyne Long make.  Callahan grounded to 2nd; Ricketts striking out the last batter.  Oklahoma now awaits settlement of the losers’ bracket to determine its opponent for Sunday’s championship game.
