OU Softball: Jordy Bahl Fires Oklahoma Past Stanford in Tight WCWS Opener

The top-ranked Sooners needed a two-out single from Jayda Coleman in the fifth inning to break the deadlock at Hall of Fame Stadium on Thursday.

OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma’s Women’s College World Series opener was far from straightforward.

The top-ranked Sooners struggled to crack Stanford freshman NiJaree Canady’s code in the circle — for five innings at least.

Jayda Coleman ignited Hall of Fame Stadium with a two-out single, scoring a pair of OU runners after Stanford left fielder Ellee Eck failed to corral the ball.

Oklahoma right-hander Jordy Bahl was happy to protect the lead, shutting out the Cardinal to fire OU to a 2-0 victory on Thursday.
