STILLWATER — The Oklahoma State softball team improved to 40-6 (15-1 Big 12) on the season with a 6-4 victory against the top-ranked Oklahoma Sooners (40-2, 14-1) on Friday night.

The Sooners jumped out to an early lead, scoring two in the second and third innings. The Cowgirls responded with a run in the third and a four-run fourth inning, which included two-run home runs by Chyenne Factor (1-for-3, 2 RBI) and Hayley Busby (1-for-3, 2 RBI). OSU tacked on an insurance run via a Kiley Naomi (1-for-2, RBI) solo homer to secure the game one victory.

Carrie Eberle (19-1) got the start in the circle for the Cowgirls and went the distance against the Sooners. The returning All-American gave up four earned runs and just five hits on the day to the No. 1 offense in the country.
 
Reagan Wright (1-for-2, RBI) also knocked her third home run of the season to propel the Cowgirls over Oklahoma.
 
Tonight’s win marks the sixth time in program history that Oklahoma State has knocked off the No. 1 ranked team in the country, marking the first time the feat has been accomplished at home.
