The unseeded Texas softball team couldn’t hold ‘em as they lost 16-1 to No. 1 Oklahoma in the first game of the College World Series championship Wednesday night.
While Austin’s bats were hot enough to score a run in the first inning, the rest of the game was all Sooners as Oklahoma’s Jocelyn Alo hit the first ball out of the park in the bottom of the first.
The Sooners capped the first inning with four more runs before slamming five more home runs, including two apiece from All and Tiara Jennings, to set a new WCWS record.
Adding another homer to the record 💅 @78jocelyn_alo

And while Texas threatened to score several more times and stranded seven runners on base in the fifth, the Longhorns would spend the rest of the match scoreless.
But Texas’ ‘Cinderella run’ isn’t done yet: the forever underdogs are set to play at least once more in the best-of-three series at 6:30 Thursday in Oklahoma City.
