FULLERTON, Calif. – The No. 2/2 Oklahoma softball team fell to 0-2 on opening day following a 3-1 loss at host-Cal State Fullerton, 3-1, in the Easton Tournament in Fullerton, Calif.

Junior Georgia Casey provided the offense for the Sooners by hitting a solo home run in the first inning, her team-best second of the year.

The Sooners’ lead lasted for just an inning as the Titans tied things up at 1-1 in the second inning on Desiree Ybarra’s solo home run to center field.

Cal State Fullerton then took the lead in the following frame as Missy Taukeiaho launched a two-run shot deep to left field, putting CSF up 3-1.

Both home runs came off OU starter Maggie Ham, who was making her Sooners debut after spending 2013 at Butler C.C. Ham allowed three earned runs on four hits in 2.1 innings of work. She struck out two and walked none.

Sophomore Kelsey Stevens came on in relief to throw the final 3.2 innings. She limited the Titans to just one hit as she struck out six and walked two.

The Oklahoma offense was unable to get on track after the first inning, though, as the team collected three hits in total.

Cal State Fullerton’s Jasmine Antunez got the win as she struck out eight and walked none while giving up one run. Ybarra got the save as she pitched two perfect innings of relief, including a pair of strikeouts.

The 0-2 start is the first for the Sooners since the 1990 season when they began 0-7. The back-to-back losses were the first suffered by OU since the 2012 Women’s College World Series Finals.

Oklahoma returns to action at the Easton Tournament with a pair of games on Saturday. First up, OU takes on Santa Clara at 2:30 p.m. CT before facing Loyola Marymount at 5 p.m. CT.
