The nation’s longest active winning streak in Division I softball grew by one on Wednesday night as Oklahoma beat the Wichita State Shockers by an 8-0 run-rule.

Sophomore Jocelyn Alo recorded her her fifth career game with multiple home runs when she smashed two out of the park. She also doubled to finish 3-for-3 on the night with five RBIs and two runs.

Sydney Romero also went yard in the top of the fourth. Her homer, over the left-field wall, tied her with Keilani Ricketts for the fifth-most career homers in program history at 50.

Mariah Lopez improved to 15-1 on the year, from the pitching circle, with her seventh shutout of the season. She scattered two hits over 5.0 innings while striking out seven WSU batters.

Oklahoma has strung together at least 30 consecutive wins only three times in program history. However, they’ve never before won 32 consecutive which is exactly what they did on Wednesday night, marking their own special notch in what is already a storied softball program.
