The Bruins needed to beat the Sooners again to keep their hopes alive, but Oklahoma would respond in a big way.

Oklahoma dropped 15 runs on UCLA in Game 2. Each of the team’s first three batters reached base in the first inning, which was followed by a Tiare Jennings home run. Jocelyn Aho would follow in the second inning with a home run and finish 4-for-4 with two dingers and seven RBI.
