OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Keilani Ricketts struck out 12 in a
five-hitter and Oklahoma beat Alabama 4-1 on Monday night in Game 1 of the Women's College World Series finals.

Jessica Shults drove in two runs, and tied the game at 1 with a
sacrifice fly in the fifth. The Sooners (54-8) went ahead to stay
later in the inning on Brianna Turang's run-scoring grounder.

Shults tacked on an RBI single in the sixth before Katie Norris'
squeeze brought in Ricketts.

Game 2 of the best-of-three series is Tuesday night.

The fourth-seeded Sooners had 11 hits, the second-most allowed
by Jackie Traina (40-3) this season, to win their 12th straight
game and snap an 11-game win streak for the Crimson Tide.

Traina scored Alabama's only run on Kendall Dawson's sacrifice
fly.
