OU set to face surging Michigan

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Lane is one of seven Michigan starters batting more than .300 in a talented lineup, and she is second on the team with 18 home runs and 60 RBIs. It’s a tough draw for OU ace Keilani Ricketts, who will see the Wolverines for the first time when they meet at 8:30 p.m. Thursday night in the opening round of the World Series.

But there are concerns for the Wolverines, chief among them the availability of sophomore pitcher Haylie Wagner. After missing the first month of the season due to injury, the Big Ten Freshman of the Year a season ago reinjured herself during warmup before the deciding game against ULL. She is 19-3 this year with an ERA of 2.5

Sara Driesenga pitched in her place last weekend and carried the Wolverines to the World Series, but coach Carol Hutchins knows her team could use both arms this week.

But whether or not they will have both pitchers available is still unclear.
