NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – Oklahoma freshman Paige Parker tied the NCAA record for perfect games in a season with four Sunday in the Sooners’ 14-0, five-inning victory over Utah Valley.

Parker struck out 12 of the 15 batters she faced, finishing one off her career high of 13 strikeouts. She needed just 64 pitches – 45 for strikes – to improve to 24-5. The only other outs of the game came on a lineout that Parker caught to end the second inning, a foul out to Lauren Chamberlain at first in the third and a foul out to catcher Whitney Ellis to end the game.

Louisiana-Lafayette’s Kyla Hall and Boston University’s Audrey West also had four perfect games in a season, both in 1994.

Oklahoma (45-7) hit five home runs. Utah Valley is 16-38.
