SOFTBALL: Casey's homers spark OU past Northwestern, 7-4

NORMAN — Georgia Casey slugged a pair of home runs and drove in five runs as No. 2 Oklahoma rallied for a 7-4 win over Northwestern on Sunday in the final game of the Kajikawa Classic in Tempe, Ariz.

The win puts OU at 5-0 on the season for the second season in a row, while the Wildcats drop to 0-5 on the year.

Things looked good for Oklahoma early on as it took advantage of wild Northwestern pitching to take a 2-0 lead in the second inning.

Brittany Williams drew a leadoff walk and Callie Parsons reached on a bunt single before freshman Leslie Miller, who was making her first career start, drew another walk.

Following the second out of the inning, Lauren Chamberlain was hit in the back on the first pitch of her plate appearance. Casey then stepped in and drew a five-pitch walk to plate the game's second run.

Northwestern jumped ahead with a four-run third inning, scoring more runs in one inning than OU had allowed in the previous four games combined.

With runners on the corners and none out, Amy Letourneau chopped one back to Keilani Ricketts in the circle, but Ricketts' flip home wasn't in time to get the runner at the plate. Anna Edwards then tripled to right field to give the Wildcats a 3-2 lead. A sacrifice fly from Aubrie May plated NU's final run of the game.

The Sooners wasted little time, however, in tying the game up and then taking the lead.

Chamberlain led off the fourth inning with a sharp single to left field. Casey then recorded her first home run of the season with a straight shot to center field.

With two outs, Pendley kept the inning alive with a walk. Williams then hit a ground-rule double to right field to put two runners in scoring position. A walk to Parsons filled the bases while a subsequent walk to Javen Henson brought home the go-ahead run.
