OSU Softball: Cowgirls Handle No. 10 UCLA 9-1 to Continue Unbeaten Start

OSU is off to a 5-0 start.

The Cowgirls got to leave the West Coast a little early.

Oklahoma State handled No. 10 UCLA in a 9-1 run-rule win Sunday in Los Angeles. The No. 9 Cowgirls left L.A. still unbeaten at 5-0 to start the season, with four of those being run-rule victories. UCLA’s start to 2024 has went the opposite direction, dropping to 2-3 and losing back-to-back games in run-rule fashion to Big 12 teams OSU and Texas this past weekend.

Two days after hitting a seventh-inning home run to bolster her team to a 1-0 victory over Loyola Marymount, Liberty transfer Caroline Wang got the Cowgirls going in the first inning with a deep single to right that scored Claire Timm. After her first week of softball at the Power Five level, Wang is hitting .615 with two home runs, six RBIs and three runs.

Megan Bloodworth extended OSU’s lead to 3-0 the next inning with a two-run shot. The game was really blown open in the fifth, though, where the Cowgirls hit three home runs in a six-run frame. And all of the damage was done with two outs.

Katie Lott started the barrage with a two-run bomb before Rosie Davis hit a solo shot and Tallen Edwards hit a two-run homer of her own. Karli Godwin also had a two-run double in the inning.

On the defensive side of things, Ivy Rosenberry started in the circle, pitching two innings while striking out one and giving up two hits and a run. Lexi Kilfoyl finished the last three innings, striking out three and giving up a hit while getting the win.

Next, OSU will go coast to coast for the Shriners Children’s Clearwater Invitational in Clearwater, Florida. The Cowgirls get No. 6 Georgia first during the trip at 9 a.m. Friday.
