Georgia vs. Oklahoma State WCWS preview
Oklahoma State advanced to its ninth WCWS thanks to both its offensive power and clutch pitching. In the regional round, the Cowgirls scored a combined 29 runs. Then in the super regional against Texas, they hit six home runs, the most of any team in the super regionals this year. The Cowgirls have homered in their past 17 games. But in the decisive win over the Longhorns that clinched their spot in Oklahoma City, Carrie Eberle pitched a gem, allowing just four hits en route to her 19th complete game and seventh shutout in the 2-0 victory. This is the first time the Cowgirls have reached the WCWS twice in a row since 1993-94.
Player to watch: P Carrie Eberle. Eberle became the first Oklahoma State player to win Big 12 Pitcher of the Year honors this season, helping the Cowgirls to their best-ever Big 12 winning percentage while leading the league in wins, complete games, shutouts and innings pitched. She is 25-3 with a no-hitter this season. Eberle transferred to Oklahoma State last season from Virginia Tech, where she was 2019 ACC Pitcher of the Year. After the pandemic ended the 2020 season early, she opted to come back this year.
The Bulldogs have been a difficult team to read this season. On the one hand, they broke Oklahoma’s 41-game winning streak on April 20. But then they lost 10 of their next 11 games and entered the NCAA tournament on a seven-game losing streak. Everything came together for the Bulldogs at the right time, though, starting in the regionals, where they beat ACC tournament champion Duke to make it to the super regional in Gainesville. Against Florida, their hitting and pitching were equally stellar — Georgia shut out the Gators in both games and posted a combined 10 runs. Mary Wilson Avant earned both wins, while Jaiden Fields went a combined 4-for-5 with two home runs in the victories. Georgia became the eighth team to not allow a run in a super regional since the format began in 2005.
Player to watch: OF Sydney Chambley. A member of the SEC All-Freshman Team, Chambley is one of three Georgia players to hit better than .300 and tally more than 40 hits. In the Athens Regional, Chambley drove in a team-high six runs — including a grand slam to end the game in the opener against Western Kentucky. Then she drove in the game-winning run to beat Duke 10-9 and reach the super regional.
