NORMAN — For seven innings Saturday and one time through the lineup Sunday, Oklahoma looked like it wasn’t going to be able to get its offense going against Tennessee pitcher Ellen Renfroe.

But with one towering home run off the bat of Lauren Chamberlain, all that changed.

Chamberlain homered twice, and the Sooners hit five home runs in all on the way to an 8-2 win in the deciding game of the best-of-3 NCAA super regional Sunday at Marita Hynes Field.

The win sends Oklahoma back to the Women’s College World Series for the fourth consecutive year, with the Sooners’ sights set on defending their 2013 national title.
