Chamberlain hit two home runs on the day, a pair of solo shots that upped her season total to 15 and career total to 45, putting her halfway to the all-time NCAA record a third of the way into her sophomore season.

Keilani Ricketts struck out seven Arizona (20-8) batters in the shutout to earn the win. The Sooners have outscored ranked teams 61-4 this year.
