OU softball journal: Coaching connections tie OU, Florida

Texas A&M Opens Play at Women's College World Series Against Florida

The Sooners advanced to play Washington in a winners' bracket game on Friday. Saturday's game will be available on ESPN and on the LSU Sports Radio Network (107.3 FM in Baton Rouge and on LSUsports.net/live).

After Oregon scored twice in the bottom of the fifth, Oklahoma answered with four runs in the top of the sixth to earn a 4-2 win and advance to its second straight championship series.

OR right fielder Danica Mercado homered to break a scoreless tie in the top of the fifth inning before 10th-seeded Oklahoma (59-9) rallied, the first come-from-behind victory in the 12 tournament games.

In what proved to be the game's decisive frame, Oklahoma posted four runs, including a two-RBI single from first baseman Shay Knighten that propelled the Sooners in front, 3-2.

The Gators didn't reach the WCWS last season, so this was a new stage for Barnhill (25-3), USA Softball's player of the year this season. She played with OU from 1996 through 1998, arriving at OU just in time for Gasso's first season. "I think our team fought hard, and it just didn't seem to happen or all come together for us".

Julie DePonte hit a two-run homer in the seventh inning after Kvistad's two-out fielding error extended the inning.

President Trump stumps Twitter with 'covfefe'
Another intriguing aspect is the fact the message is still active on Trump's Twitter account and it was seen by 31 million users. But on Tuesday night (May 30), the tweeter-in-chief set the service on fire with one of his most confounding, weird messages.

The Gators loaded the bases on a one-out double, walk and single before Janell Wheaton drove the first pitch she saw on the ground back through the circle into center.

The University of Florida won back-to-back College World Series titles in 2014 and 2015 but only seven of the current 18 players on the roster remain from the most recent of those championship teams. "We watch her on TV all the time".

As I would say, spit on it and move on."On taking a day off before playing Saturday".

Had the Huskies won Sunday, they would have had to play Florida in a second game. They were the first runs Florida has allowed in the World Series. "I'm really proud of not only their preparation and their work ethic, but their confidence in not only themselves, their catcher, their defense and our pitching coach". The Ducks were taken down by Washington, 3-1, in the previous round, while the Bears lost to Oklahoma. Jenna Lilley was hit by a pitch to put two on with no outs. Yet with two wins, OR matched its deepest advancement into the tournament, only having reached Sunday's action on one previous occasion, in 2014.

But in this situation, I think it's good for us to be able to take a step back, sort of calm ourselves down, and look at our game and understand: You know what?

Florida has outscored opponents 20-2 in the series. GAME 10 Game 6 loser vs.
