OKLAHOMA CITY, Oklahoma. The highest ranked and conference No. 1 Seed Oklahoma softball team advanced to Saturday’s Big 12 Championship Game with a 5-0 victory over four-seed Iowa State in Friday’s semifinals.

The win was highlighted by a strikeout 14, shutout by redshirt senior Hope Trautwein and a senior captain’s first inning grand slam Lynnsie Elam

“Really happy with the way we played today, especially with the way we came out,” said head coach Patty Gasso† “Attacked early, scored early, which was great. The story of the match for me was Hope.”

The Sooners (49-1) didn’t have time to get the bats going and scored four runs on three hits in the first inning. After a groundout in the leadoff, back-to-back singles by Jocelyn Alo and Tiare Jennings put two on board. Then a walk of two to Alyssa BritoElam launched her second career grand slam to put OU in four after one inning.

Through two innings, Trautwein struckout six of the first seven Cyclones (28-27). The Sooners got their last run of the game in the second on an RBI single from junior Rylie Boone† After a lead-off single from fellow junior Kinzie HansenBoone tore the scoring single to the middle.

The last five innings were scoreless while Trautwein (16-0) continued to deal. The freshly batted All-Big 12 First Team roster ended with a complete game shutout, its seventh of the season and striking out 14 on one walk and two hits. It was Trautwein’s OU career-high strikeout total and fourth double-digit K performance of the season. The shutout was OU’s nation-best 29th of the year.

“It’s really exciting,” Trautwein said. “I know that ‘postseason’ means elevating our game and our mentality. It’s easy to do that when I have a whole team and coaching staff behind me leading the way. But it means a lot. It means a lot that this program such a force in the post season, and I get to be a part of it.”

Alo and Boone accelerated OU at the plate with 2-for-3 showings, while four other Sooners scored a goal in the game. Elam (4 RBI) and Boone (1 RBI) combined to bring in the five runs of OU.

The Sooners will meet the winner of the day’s second semifinal between two-seed Oklahoma State and three-seed Texas. The championship game is scheduled for Saturday at 2 p.m. CT on ESPN2.
