Recap |  Box Score

• The win snapped a two-game losing streak to Oklahoma and made the all-time series 37-7 in favor of the Sooners.
• The win marked the third-straight year where Texas Tech has won at least one game against Oklahoma.
• Texas Tech scored at least five runs for the fifth time in the last seven meetings with the Sooners.
• In over 40 games between the two schools, Tech had only defeated a top-10 Oklahoma team once before which came in two victory over the then-9th ranked Sooners in 1999. Tech took a 2-1 victory on May 14 during the Big 12 Tournament after winning a 4-1 game April 26 earlier in the year in Norman.
• Red Raiders are now 3-4 all-time against the Sooners under head coach Shanon Hays.

• The victory was Texas Tech's first over a top-five team since defeating No. 5 Texas A&M, 6-2, on April 29, 2007 in a game played in College Station.
• The win improved Tech to 3-5 against ranked opponents this year and 1-4 against those ranked in the top 10 overall.
• The win also improved Tech to 5-2 on the year in one-run games and 10-2 when playing on a Friday.
• The Red Raiders scored in the first inning for the second-straight game. Tech is now 17-3 on the year when doing so. Three of Tech's six runs so far in the series have come in the first inning.
• The Red Raiders are now 22-0 on the year when leading after five innings. Tech's three-run lead was the biggest deficit an opponent has overcome to at least tie the game all year.
• Despite being the top two home runs teams in the Big 12, the two teams have combined to hit only two so far in the series. Javen Henson hit a solo shot for OU in the third for the only dinger in the game. Tech is now 7-5 on the year when not hitting a home run and 20-4 when an opponent hits just one home run.
• Texas Techs' five runs in the game matched the Oklahoma season high for runs scored by an opponent this year. Stanford previously beat the Sooners, 5-0, on Feb. 24 this year during the Cathedral City Classic.

Adriana Perez
• Despite going 0-for-3 at the plate, Perez still managed to drive in a pair of runs for her team-leading 12th multiple-RBI game of the year.
• Perez is hitless in the series as she has combined to go 0-for-6 so far.

Sandy James
• James had a solid day at the plate with a 3-for-4 performance that included two infield singles and then a seventh-inning double. It marked her ninth multiple-hit game of the year.

Ashley Hamada
• Hamada stole a career-high two bases in the game as she swiped second in the fifth before taking third in the seventh en route to eventually scoring on an errant throw.

Emily Bledsoe
• Bledsoe's first-inning triple was her second of the season and seventh for her career, moving her one shy of the Tech career record held by Denise Jackson (1997-98) and Paula Workman (1997-2000).
• The triple was also her 185th hit in her career, moving her past current volunteer assistant coach Leah Legler (2007-10) for third all-time in the Tech record book.
