NORMAN, Okla. - The 12th-ranked University of Oklahoma softball team split a pair of games against Baylor Wednesday evening at the OU Softball Complex. The Sooners (28-11, 5-3 Big 12) dropped the first game, 5-0, before rebounding to defeat the Bears (27-14, 3-3 Big 12), 4-0, in the second.

The Sooners managed just four hits in the opener and stranded five runners. A trio of freshmen picked up three of the four hits with Evan Sallis and Karolyne Long each going 1-for-3, while Katie Norris was 1-for-2. Junior Amber Flores tallied the other hit, going 1-for-3. OU starter Allee Allen fell to 12-2 on the year after giving up three runs, two of them earned, in 2.2 innings of work. A. Allen gave up five hits and was relieved in the third by freshman Kirsten Allen. K. Allen gave up two earned runs on six hits in the final 4.1 innings.

Alex Colyer led the way for Baylor in the first game, going 3-for-4 with two runs driven in and another scored. After Courtney Oberg hit a home run to center field in the second inning, Colyer tacked on a two-run double to left center in the third that sparked the Bears' offense. Baylor added two runs in the fifth when Coyler scored Bree Hanafin on a single up the middle. Coyler scored later in the inning on an Oberg single to left field. Baylor starter Whitney Canion went the distance, giving up just the four hits, walking two and striking out eight.

After a scoreless first inning in the second game, Oklahoma finally got on the board in the bottom of the second on a Norris solo home run to left center. OU tallied three hits in the inning but left the bases loaded.

The Sooners added three runs in the fourth. The output began with back-to-back singles by sophomores Dani Dobbs and Chana'e Jones. After the runners moved over on a ground, Sallis reached on an error to load the bases with one out. Flores then hit her second sacrifice fly on the year, scoring Dobbs. Senior Samantha Ricketts then doubled to center field to score Sallis and Jones.

Ricketts and Jones led the attack, which tallied eight hits in the game. Each went 2-for-3 with Ricketts driving in the two runs on the double.

OU starter D.J. Mathis (9-3) kept the Bears in check. Kayce Walker had the only multiple outing in the game, going 2-for-3. Mathis threw a complete game shutout, allowing just six hits. She struck out four in her best performance since returning from a hampering injury.

Canion picked up the loss in the second game, falling to 15-11 after giving up four runs, one of which was earned, on the eight hits.

The Sooners return to action this weekend, hosting Nebraska in a two-game series at the OU Softball Complex. First pitch on Saturday is set for 2 p.m. CT, while the finale is scheduled for Sunday at 1 p.m.
