Social media reacts to Sooners sweep of Oklahoma State in Bedlam
The Oklahoma Sooners completed the 2023 regular season with a sweep of the Oklahoma State Cowgirls in Stillwater. Two of the three contests weren’t all that close as the Oklahoma Sooners pitching staff continued its incredible run on the way to a Bedlam sweep.
During the sweep, Alex Storako moved to 16-0 and recorded strikeout No. 1,000. She’s been such a huge pickup for Patty Gasso this season; she has provided a veteran presence that can throw a bunch of innings.
In the Sunday win, Grace Lyons and Alynah Torres provided the offense the Sooners needed to complete their Big 12 slate undefeated.
As Oklahoma prepares for the Big 12 championships in Oklahoma City, here’s a look at how social media reacted to the sweep.
Going undefeated in Big 12 softball regular season play has not been common, until recently. Nebraska did it in 1996 and then nobody else for 22 years. #Sooners have now done it three times (2018, '19 and '23). OU is 87-2 in Big 12 play last five seasons. https://t.co/V0SyaCCdiN

87-2 in Big 12 play last five seasons? That’s absurd! https://t.co/zLFJRvBOyC

The Sooners won 41 straight in 2019, 40 game win streak that started in 2020 and ended in 2021, 40 wins that started in the WCWS in 2021 and ended vs Texas in 2022 and now a 40 game win streak in 2023. DOMINANCE.

Shout out to Murray State
In Oklahoma, we do softball right.
Many people are unaware that Murray State in Tishomingo is undefeated in NJCAA, DII and going to the District tourney this week.

Is the SEC ready?
Oh my. This stat by #Sooners SID @mhouckOU is insane. It also gives another stat/fact that shows the dominance that is Patty Gasso and the @OU_Softball program.
It’s crazy. Better question, are they SEC ready? https://t.co/fpNe3YKdLP

Huge weekend for Oklahoma
If they could of just came thru on half these opportunities then game 1 and 3 are run rules. Either way a sweep on the road against a top 10 team and rival…can’t think of a better way to close out the regular season.

With the Oklahoma #Sooners pitching staff, 2-0 might as well be 10-0.
They've allowed 1 run or fewer in 39 of their 50 games in 2023. Just 11 games of 2 or more runs.
4 runs allowed in 3 games this season.
0 games with > 4 runs allowed.
They're stupid good! pic.twitter.com/1nwGN59DKJ

Hear from Coach via All Sooners on SI
#Sooners coach Patty Gasso has instilled an incredible mentality in her team, allowing OU to stage seventh inning rallies against Texas and OSU.
