WCWS Highlights: Oklahoma 5 – Tennessee 3 – F/12

06/04/2013

Lauren ChamberlainOKLAHOMA CITY – In one of the wildest Women’s College World Series games you’re ever going to witness, Oklahoma managed to scrape out a 5-3 victory in 12 innings over Tennessee to take a one-game lead in the best-of-three championship series.

The game was scoreless through ten innings thanks to the dominant pitching of Tennessee’s Ellen Renfroe and Oklahoma’s Keilani Ricketts. Both hurlers struck out 13 batters in 12 innings of work apiece.

The Volunteers were the first to break the deadlock, plating three runs in the top of the 11th on Madison Shipman’s homer. But the Sooners answered back in the bottom of the inning, rallying with two outs to tie the game when Destinee Martinez and Callie Parsons had back-to-back extra-base hits.

In the bottom of the 12th, Lauren Chamberlain became the hero, hitting a two-run walk off shot to put OU one win away from the national championship. It was Chamberlain’s 30th home run of the year.

Kevin Kugler and Leah Amico called the action on Westwood One Sports.
