Patty Gasso Wins No. 900 at Oklahoma

Patty Gasso earned win No. 900 as head coach of the Oklahoma Sooners thanks to a 7-1 victory in game one of a doubleheader at Wichita State on Wednesday afternoon.

Now in her 19th season at the helm of the Sooners, Gasso's record stands at 900-281-2 at OU and 1060- 340-3 overall.

The top-ranked Sooners (28-2) used a four-run fourth inning to take command, while senior pitcher Keilani Ricketts and the OU defense retired the final 13 Wichita State (12-16) batters of the game.

Ricketts struck out nine, walked none and allowed just two hits as she saw her record improve to 15-1. A solo home run in the third inning was the only damage allowed by the senior lefty.

She did not allow a baserunner beyond the third inning, getting the Shockers out 1-2-3 in each of the final four frames.

Oklahoma got on the board in the second inning. (More at
