After having their record-setting 41-game win streak snapped, Oklahoma bounced back in the second game of a double header to shutout Wisconsin in a 2-0 win. The Sooners now advance to their 10th straight super regional appearance.
After throwing a no-hitter against Wisconsin the previous day, Giselle Juarez suffered her first loss of the season in the first regional championship game on Sunday. Juarez came back in the elimination game and threw 7 complete innings, recording 8 strikeouts and allowing just 4 hits while shutting out the Badgers.
In the circle for Wisconsin was Kaitlyn Menz, who threw another complete game, throwing for 14 total innings on the day, while allowing just 9 hits and 3 runs the entire day.
Oklahoma’s Sydney Romero, who hit the lone home run in game one on Sunday, hit in the first run of the game on a sac-fly to left field that would score Raegan Rodgers in game two. Romero finished with 3 of Oklahoma’s 9 hits on the Sunday.
The second run of the game came in the top of the third, when freshman Grace Green smacked a solo shot over left field.
Oklahoma will host the super regionals May 23-26, and will face the winner of Northwestern and Louisville.
