Golden Bears got a bad draw being placed in the Norman Regional with No.1 Oklahoma
Interestingly, Cal going with Sona Halajian in the circle. Broadcast said that Head Coach Chelsea Spencer said that Sona's the "most confident". The junior missed some time this year and had the worst numbers, but the also the best stuff.
Anyhow, Cal was trailing 2-0 after a long top-1st for Missouri. As I type that, Cal hit a solo homer to make it 2-1.
Let’s go Bears!
OK in Norman: ouch.
How good is Oklahoma? They lead D1 batting average by THIRTY points. Their team ERA is 0.86, which is ridiculous when you consider that the next closest, Clemson is at 1.33. They have played about 10% fewer innings than anybody else because they mercy rule so many teams. Nearly two-thirds of their games end in shutouts. They lead D1 scoring by more than a point (8.13 ppg vs. 6.98). They lead slugging by 73 points (0.665). They lead D1 in doubles, homers, fielding. Oklahoma has been #1 in softball for 11 years in a row, including being national champs four of the past six WC World Series. And this is their best team yet by win-loss.
