ALABAMA QUICK HITS
► Alabama’s eight losses this season are to eight different teams. No team has beaten the Crimson Tide twice this season.

► Monday's game marks the first time Alabama has lost a WCWS game in which junior left fielder Kayla Braud has gotten a hit. Braud singled in the third inning.

► Alabama centerfielder Jennifer Fenton’s third-inning single gave her hits in five consecutive WCWS games dating back to last season. Fenton went 2 for 4 on Monday night and has now recorded a hit in 14 consecutive games overall. She has reached base safely in 17 consecutive games.

► Monday night’s loss was pitcher Jackie Traina third loss of the season (40-3) and first since May 4 (4-1 to Florida).

► OU’s 11 hits were the second-most surrendered by Traina this season and the most in 37 starts. She had allowed just 10 total hits at this year’s WCWS prior to Monday night.

► Catcher Kendall Dawson’s sacrifice fly RBI in the fourth inning Monday gave her an RBI in consecutive games for the first time all season.

► Despite Monday’s loss, Alabama still holds a 4-3 advantage in the all-time series between the schools.

OKLAHOMA QUICK HITS
► The Sooners are one win away from the program’s second national championship. The first came in 2000, OU’s first appearance at the WCWS.

► Destinee Martinez had five consecutive hits through Sunday’s win against Arizona State and her first two at-bats on Monday. Her consecutive hits streak ended with a fly-out to centerfield in the top of the fourth inning.

► Of Oklahoma’s nine position players who started Monday’s game, none are seniors. The only senior starter for OU on Monday night was designated player Katie Norris.

► Nine of OU’s nation-leading streak of 12 consecutive wins have come in the postseason. Oklahoma has now outscored its nine postseason opponents by a 62-10 margin.

► Ricketts improved to 37-7 on the year, tying the school record for single-season victories. She shares the mark with Jennifer Stewart (2001) and Lauren Eckermann (2007).

► Junior catcher Jessica Shults had two RBI on Monday night, giving her a tournament-high four RBI at the WCWS.

► Every batter in OU’s lineup reached base at least once in Monday’s win. Six advanced via hits, while three via walks.
