WHAT TO WATCH: The Ragin’ Cajuns’ slog out of the losers bracket starts with a familiar foe. UL-Lafayette took a series from OU at Lamson Park this season, but the Sooners were without slugger Lauren Chamberlain. Meanwhile, there’s the question of whether the Cajuns bats — held in check for just one hit against Kentucky — can again feast on OU starter Kelsey Stevens. The loser’s season ends, while the winner’s prize is a nightcap of a doubleheader against top overall seed Oregon.
IN THE HOLE: Winner plays Oregon at 8:30 p.m. Saturday.
