Box Score – Photos – Highlights
A six-run spurt in the bottom of the sixth propelled No. 2-seed Oklahoma State to a 6-2 come-from-behind win over No. 3 Texas in the opening game of the 2019 Phillip 66 Softball Championship. Rylee Bayless, Chyenne Factor, Sydney Springfield, Kiley Naomi and Chelsea Alexander helped drive in the Pokes’ six runs. Texas opened with a two-run lead in the top of the fourth inning with the help of Kaitlyn Washington’s two-run blast to right center field. Samant Show (17-7) surrendered just two runs on four hits and struck out three in the complete game.
No. 4-seed Texas Tech won 7-3 against No. 6-seed Kansas in the second game of the championship. The Red Raiders broke through in the bottom of the third scoring four runs and added three more in the fourth. KU didn’t back down as the Jayhawks were able to get on the board in the top of the seventh inning after Morgyn Wynne’s solo home run and Madison Sykes hit over right field to cut the lead down to four. Karli Hamilton, the leadoff hitter for the Red Raiders, finished the game with a 2-for-3 performance, two hits, two runs scored, a double and an RBI. Tech’s Erin Edmoundson improved to 19-3 after striking out four and allowing three runs, all earned, on three hits in 7.0 innings pitched.
