Live scores and updates from WCWS

OKLAHOMA CITY — Texas softball coach Mike White was at a loss for words after his team dropped Game 1 of a best-of-three series 8-3 to Oklahoma on Wednesday in the Women’s College World Series. “It’s pretty simple,” White said. “It’s fight or go home.”

Can Texas (55-9) fight off elimination on Thursday and force a third and decisive game on Friday against a Sooner team trying to win an unprecedented fourth straight national title?

Watch live with Thomas Jones, Kirk Buhls and the American Statesman.

Central 2: Texas 1, Oklahoma 0

The Texans are just 1-for-6 with runners in this game, but Henry has truly provided the Horns’ first hit in the last three games. That has been missing since the Horns won their first two games easily. – Kirk Buhls

Central 2: Texas 1, Oklahoma 0

The Longhorns hold the No. 1 lead in the championship series. Texas catcher Reese Atwood didn’t have a hit, but she did score a run. She reaches base on a walk and is credited with her first steal of the season, if that call holds. The 6-footer then shows her wheels and scores on an RBI single by Kayden Henry to right field. Thomas Jones

Start 1: Texas 0, Oklahoma 0

Texas survives the first half unscathed, unlike last night, and turns its fourth doubleheader into WCWS form here. OU leads all teams here with a .309 batting average in the WCWS. The Horns are hitting just .255 after leading the nation in batting average at .372. –– Kirk Buhls

End 1: Texas 0, Oklahoma 0

Oklahoma’s Jayda Coleman leads off the bottom of the first with a sharp single but then Texas pitching shows off its glove. Third baseman Mia Scott nearly started a double play but settled for one out, then shortstop Vivi Martinez and second baseman Alyssa Washington ran a double play to end the win -Thomas Jones

Middle 1: Texas 0, Oklahoma 0

Texas picks up where it left off in game one. She had just two hits in six at-bats with runners in scoring position in that loss and squandered a leadoff walk by Bella Dayton with an easy double play. – Kirk Buhls

Middle 1: Texas 0, Oklahoma 0

Oklahoma starter Carly Kenney opens the game with a walk to Bella Dayton, but Sooner second baseman Avery Hodge makes a great play to convert a double play. -Thomas Jones

Texas doesn’t lose two in a row very often

Texas is hungry to keep its season and championship hopes alive tonight. The Horns lost 8-3 to OU last night and have not lost two games in a row to the same opponent all season. Their only losing streak came in two games against Oklahoma State and OU in different series. – Kirk Buhls

Texas vs. OU reels viewers

The first game between Texas and Oklahoma, which aired on ESPN, drew the best audience for a WCWS game ever with 1.9 million viewers, according to ESPN. This marked the WCWS’s best audience since 2021 and the second-best audience since 2015. It was also the second-most broadcast softball game ever on ESPN+. -Thomas Jones

Devon Park already looks like an OU pool, but Texas is represented. AD Chris Del Conte, Chief Trustee Kevin Eltiff and Chancellor J.P. Milliken watch from the front row behind the Horn dugout. – Kirk Buhls

It’s no surprise that Mike White went with young right-hander Mack Morgan. She’s been impressive and tough this postseason and has thrown 90% of the shots, which could help her keep OU’s hits inside the park in theory. – Kirk Buhls

Mack Morgan begins his Texas journey

White fondly calls young Mack Morgan the “Bulldog” of the circuit, and he’s turning to his young pitcher to help keep the Longhorns’ season alive. Morgan has yet to allow a run in the WCWS in two appearances, giving up just two hits and one walk with seven strikeouts in 6.1 innings pitched. That stretch includes 1.2 innings pitched in Wednesday’s loss to the Sooners. Oklahoma will face Carly Kenney, a graduate student in her first season with the Sooners. She only threw a third of an inning in the WCWS, and this will be her sixth start of the season. Part of a curveball from OU coach Patty Gasso. -Thomas Jones
