NORMAN — A day after proving it can win in blowouts, second-ranked Oklahoma showed it could win a close one as well.
The Sooners defeated Pittsburgh 2-1 in the final game of the Easton Tournament on Sunday, with transfer sophomore Kelsey Stevens improving to 2-0 on the season with the win. She went the distance, struck out 10 batters and allowed just four hits.
While Stevens was having success in the circle, the vaunted Sooners offense struggled. They had just one hit in the game, but it was a two-run home run by Leslie Miller in the fourth inning. It was the seventh home run the Sooners hit in their 3-2 start to the season.
OU will next play in Phoenix, Arix., in a tournament next weekend that also features No. 7 Arizona State and No. 3 Washington.
