OKLAHOMA CITY -- Oklahoma's defense kept things close until the Sooners' historic offense came to life late with a pair of back-breaking home runs to beat rival Texas 10-5 and claim its second consecutive national championship Thursday night.
The Sooners have now won six Women's College World Series under head coach Patty Gasso, including four of the past seven. The 2020 postseason was canceled because of COVID-19.
Oklahoma set a record with 17 home runs during the WCWS, breaking the mark of 15 it set last season.
It also set a record for total runs scored during the WCWS with 64.
