Due to inclement weather in Stillwater, Okla., Friday night's game between No. 5/4 Oklahoma and Oklahoma State has been postponed.
The Sooners led the Cowgirls 5-0 after the top of the second inning when the game was halted at 6:42 p.m. The game will resume Saturday in Norman where it left off in the bottom of the second at 11 a.m.
Admission will be free for the postponed game. Seats belonging to OU season ticket holders will be honored while the rest of the seats will be general admission. The stadium will be cleared upon the game’s conclusion in advance of the previously scheduled 2 p.m. game between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
The Sooners wasted no time jumping on the Cowgirls Friday night, sending 11 to the plate in the top of the first and scoring five runs on six hits.
Senior Erin Miller and freshman Caleigh Clifton each walked to start the game before freshman Shay Knighten laced a single into left-center, plating Miller. Two batters later, freshman Sydney Romero busted the game open when she pulled an 0-1 pitch over the wall in left field. It was her sixth homer of the year and it put OU on top 4-0.
For just the second time this year, the Sooners recorded back-to-back home runs when sophomore Nicole Pendley followed Romero’s blast with one of her own. Pendley’s fifth home run of the season went to left-center and extended the lead to 5-0.
The five runs tied for the second-highest output in the first inning for OU this year, matching the five scored against Lamar on Feb. 13. The only higher scoring first inning came on Feb. 20 when the Sooners scored eight against Western Michigan.
