Oklahoma played Arkansas in a ten inning fall game today. 

Arkansas loaded the bases in the top of the 1st, but Mariah Lopez ended the threat with a strikeout.

The first 3 Sooner batters combined to put Oklahoma up 2-0 as Fale Aviu drove in Clifton and Mendes with a 2 run single up the middle. 2-0 after 1.

The Razorbacks threatened again in the top of the 2nd with runners on the corners with 2 outs... but Jordan gets out of it with a gb to 2nd.

Aviu delivers another RBI single and Oklahoma is up 3-0 after 2 innings.

Mariah Lopez: 3.0 IP, 3 H, 0 R, 2 BB, 6 K.

Nicole Mendes comes in to pitch the 4th inning. She gives up a leadoff single but then retires the next 3 batters.

Jocelyn Alo hits her first HR for Oklahoma in the bottom of the 4th. 4-0.

Nicole Mendes: 2.0 IP, 1 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 1 K.

Parker Conrad comes in to pitch the 6th inning. She gives up 2 singles but Arkansas does not score.

Top of the 7th: Conrad gives up two solo HR to Arkansas. 4-2 going to the bottom of the 7th.

Raegan Rogers scores on a double steal. Sooners up 5-2. Mendes rips an RBI single to CF (6-2). Mendes scores on the second double steal of the inning. Oklahoma leads 7-2 after 7 innings.

Parker Conrad: 3.0 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 0 BB, 1 K.

Paige Lowary comes in to pitch... and holds Arkansas scoreless in the ninth and tenth. 

Paige Lowary: 2.0 IP, 2 H, 0 R, 0 BB, 2 K.

Final score: Oklahoma wins 7-2 in ten innings.

I think Hedgcock started the game, gave up 4 over five innings. I believe Haff also pitched, gave up the other 3. Arky uniforms didn't have names or numbers.

<< Got any pitching stats for Arkansas? >> (Sec fan91)

Here are some game stats for ya... 

According to the Oklahoma softball page - Lauren Archuleta pitched all ten innings for Arkansas:
10. IP, 13 H, 7 ER, 3 BB, 2 HB, 8 K. 

But... I have a feeling that is likely a mistake.
Those are the team pitching stats. I really doubt Archuleta pitched 10 innings. 
I'd say the Arkansas pitching info RahOKU gave above is probably more accurate.

++++++++++++++++++++++++

Here is how the batting order did for Arkansas...
P - Lauren Archuleta 5010 , 1B
C - A. J. Belan 5121 , HR, 1B
1B - Sydney Benz 5010 , 2B, K
2B - Macy Brotherton 5020 , 1B, 1B
SS - Autumn Buczek 5020 , 1B, 1B
3B - Madellyn Brotherton 4010 , 1B, BB
LF - Haydi Bugarin 4000 , 3K
CF - Tori Cooper 3121 , HR, BB
RF - Ashley Diaz 4000 , 2K

5121 = 5 AB, 1 Run, 2 Hits, 1 RBI

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

These are the Oklahoma batters that had at least one hit:

Clifton 3210 , 2B, HB
Mendes 4221 , 1B, 1B
Aviu 3033 , 1B, 1B, 1B
Alo 5121 , HR, 1B, BB
Kelsey Arnold 3020 , 1B, 1B
Lynnsie Elam 2010 , 2B
Kylie Lundberg 2010 , 1B, HB
Hannah Sparks 2110 , 1B

I based my observations on the names the Arkansas players were using to encourage the pitchers during their time in the field. Not scientific.

I believe Alo hit her first HR as a Sooner.

Mariah Jordan should say Mariah Lopez, OU doesn’t have a Mariah Jordan on their roster, that may be her middle name possibly. I’m thinking that may be part of her Twitter name.

Arkansas didn’t have Autumn Storms today due to the fact that she is having issues with her hip, which I did hear she was recovering from an injury but oddly enough she pitched against Oklahoma State last week.

I believe Caroline Hedgecock and Freshman Mary Haff pitched for Arkansas .

Sydney Parr robbed a HR from Caleigh Clifton, making a nice play over the wall in LF.

It was a good game considering it is Fall Ball

Thanks for that correction on Mariah Lopez. 
Autumn Storms... what a great name. She seems destined to become a tv meteorologist.
Thanks for the info on the likely Arkansas pitchers.

A couple of Arkansas' hitters stood out, bopping solo homers off Conrad.

OU's latest Mizzou import appears to throw hard but has a little ways to go in the art and craft of pitching. At this point I'd see the two Paiges and Lopez as eating up most of the important innings. Mendes also pitching quite a bit this fall. She's crafty.

Question: Why is Melanie Olmos not getting anytime in the circle? Is she not a P5 type pitcher?? I’m just curious

Don’t mean to beat a dead horse, but that should say something about Conrad’s ability to contribute to OU’s stacked staff. She’s just not that good

Not at this point. Not after a few weeks of fall workouts, etc. But that doesn't mean over a longer time period Conrad can't be a significant contributor. She's coming off an injury season and hasn't had that long to be coached by Gasso/Lombardi. I think the OU brain trust is looking beyond this season, after the two Paiges are graduated. They're stacking up a staff of arms for the future. Conrad has the length and strength to be a big contributor, but it's going to take some time.

I believe the jury is still out on Conrad, I think next year (2019) will be her year to shine. Lombardi has shown with Lowary that she can help pitchers get the best out of their ability. Lowary was night and day at Mizzou and OU, I think Conrad can be the same.

Olmos has been nursing as injury this fall. Pretty sure she will not be used this fall. Only one more game left this Friday.

I thought Mendes hit the ball that Parr caught.  I may have been distracted by those around me but my memory is that it was similar to the type of homers Mendes' hits to left field.  Either way, it was "pretty near" a 4 bagger.

You are absolutely correct.  I commented to the people around me that "Paige Lowary wasn't the same pitcher in Puerto Vallarta that closed out the championship against Florida."  A man leaned over from behind me to ask me to repeat what I said.  It turns out it was Paige Lowary's dad!

He said that Melyssa Lombardi worked with Paige on her mechanics and taught her more about pitching strategy than Paige had ever been exposed to.  He said being at Oklahoma and the emphasis on family values gave Paige a lot of confidence that she didn't have while being coached by the jerks (my term, not his) at Missouri.  Everyone gave Paige the confidence and the courage to overcome the wicked injury to her face when she was hit by a batted ball. 

He said that Lombardi is going to work with Conrad the same way, to help her overcome injury, teach her new mechanics and how to look at the game in a confident and objective manner.  Conrad has the raw talent to be great just as Paige Lowary has.  It just needs to be nurtured and trained under the tutelage of a master coach.

Mendes has a quirky rise ball that fooled two Arkansas batters.  I had not seen Nicole pitch prior to Sunday.  Even in her warmups I could see the talent that would make her a front line starter at most schools, even those in Power 5 Conferences. 

She has already shown mature leadership for the team.  I expect over the next 3 seasons that her role in the circle will grow even as she pulls double duty in the field.  Her overall ability demands that she be an everyday player.

Thanks for the info on the likely Arkansas pitchers.


It was impossible to track Arkansas players.  They didn't have numbers on their uniforms.

Lynnsie Elam 2010 , 2B
Kylie Lundberg 2010 , 1B, HB
Hannah Sparks 2110 , 1B



The stat sheet I saw credited Nicole Mendes with the win.  Lopez left after 3 innings leading 3-0.  Go figure?
