NORMAN, Okla. — The Sooners scored more runs in a single inning than any team in program history with 18 in a fourth-frame explosion, and they blanked the Texas Tech Red Raiders 20-0 in five innings Sunday afternoon at Marita Hynes Field. It completed a three game sweep, during which they outscored the Red Raiders 40-0, not permitting a single run while tallying two more run-rules for 28 on the season.

That, by the way, adds to OU’s program-record mark, surpassing 25 in both the 2013 and 2019 seasons. It’s the fifth time this season OU’s put up 20 runs in a game and the sixth time it’s mounted a 10-plus-run inning, as the 18-spot is tied for second in a single frame in NCAA history. Only College of Charleston’s 29-run second inning back on Feb. 11, 2004 has been more productive, while Canisius also put up 18 way back in 1985, for those interested in those kinds of things.

And the Sooners, who did so three times this weekend, blanked an opponent for the 20th time this season. That’s an NCAA best in 2021.

Afterwards, head coach Patty Gasso met with the media to give her thoughts on that unreal performance, which just happened to be on Senior Day for utility player Nicole Mendes and pitchers Giselle ‘G’ Juarez and Shannon Saile, and the entire weekend.
