Back came No. 1 Oklahoma to Waco

By Arnie Leshin 
Revenge was sweet for the top-ranked, once-beaten, high-flying Oklahoma University softball team.
 
It returned to Waco, Tx., to Getterman Stadium, the home of Baylor, and the site of its initial defeat, 4-3, back on Feb. 8, and just turned it up in three straight games to advance to 42-1 overall  and on a 34-game winning streak.
 
In order starting on Thursday, it was shutouts of 7-0, 4-0, 2-0, to drop the No. 16 Bears to 26-14 and gain its 25th shutout. 
 
Right-handed sophomore Jordy Bahl, the loser of that initial game back at Baylor, won the first two of these avenging contests, and is 13-1. Righty sophomore Nicole May (13-0) won the third game.
 
The big hitter was newcomer C’sydney Sanders, the transfer from Arizona State and a sophomore starting at first base. She hit a home run in each of the first two games, drove home four runs, and had five hits in seven at bats.
 
Junior second baseman Tiera Jennings also hit one out in game two with a runner on base, as did junior left fielder Alyssa Brito with a solo shot. 
 
In game one, the Sooners scored once each in the second and third innings, three times in the fourth, and twice in the fifth to finish with 11 hits and play errorless ball.
 
In game two, it was scoreless until the sixth frame when the Sooners tallied four times to seal the win with five hits and no miscues. 
 
In game three, the Sooners struck quickly with a run each in the first and second innings and came away with seven hits and again errorless ball. 
 
In all, Baylor had a total of nine hits, none of them extra bases, and only one runner reached second base over the three days. The attendance was announced as 1,200 all three days. 
 
The next stops for Oklahoma are games at Wichita State, Tulsa, and Kansas.
