What is the pitching matchup for Texas vs. Oklahoma, Game 2?

While pitching in softball is a bit different than baseball, expect to see two pitchers on the mound who also pitched in Game 1 of the 2024 Women's College World Series.

For the Longhorns, expect to see Mac Morgan get the start. She pitched 1.2 shutout innings and allowed a hit and a pair of strikeouts to lower her season ERA to 1.83.

The Sooners, meanwhile, are going to likely counter with their ace pitcher Kelly for another game. She pitched a complete game with three runs (one earned) on four hits with four walks and eight strikeouts in Game 1 of the Women's College World Series, lowering her season ERA to 1.91.

Who will win Game 2 of the Women's College World Series?

The Oklahoma Sooners seem to have the answer to stop the Texas Longhorns. Following their Game 1 victory, Oklahoma improved to an unbelievable 32-3 in 35 games against the Longhorns.

Its offense also showed the ability to dominate, scoring five runs in the first three innings. However, they are not going to just stop, as they scored a run in each of the final three innings to add some insurance.

The Sooners, though, are the better fielding team, as the Longhorns committed three errors in Game 1. Texas is an outstanding team, but Oklahoma is used to performing in Oklahoma City and should sweep the 2024 Women's College World Series.
