NORMAN, Okla. (AP) _ Pitcher Jennifer Stewart allowed only three hits as Oklahoma shut out Oklahoma State 3-0 in a bedlam softball game on Wednesday.

Stewart gave up the three hits in the first three innings, then clamped down in the final four innings to retire 10 batters in order.

The game remained scoreless until the fifth inning, when Mandy Fulton scored for OU (30-7, 5-2 Big 12) on Leah Gulla's double to center field. After Erin Evans grounded out to the third, Andrea Davis pinch hit for LaKisha Washington and walked.

OSU pitcher Lauren Bay then walked Kelli Braitsch to load the bases and an error by the third baseman allowed a run to score. The final run of the game came when Bay walked Ashli Barrett.

Bay (8-7) allowed three hits and three runs in six innings to take the loss for Oklahoma State (18-15, 3-4 Big 12).

Stewart allowed three hits and no runs in seven innings to pick up the victory, her 20th in 23 games.
