Sophomore utility Mackenzie Donihoo hit three home runs in Oklahoma’s two Women’s College World Series wins against Georgia and UCLA on Saturday.
Despite not starting the tournament opener against James Madison on Thursday, Donihoo went 3-for-3 with a home run and two RBIs against Georgia, before going 2-for-4 with three RBIs and two home runs to left field against UCLA.
The Sooners run-ruled Georgia 8-0 and defeated UCLA 10-3 to advance to the Women’s College World Series semifinals.
Here’s how Twitter reacted to Donihoo’s monster day and Oklahoma’s wins:

unbelievable — sophomore LF Mackenzie Donihoo, who has only started 25 of Oklahoma 55 games this year (despite hitting well over .400) because their lineup is SO ridiculous, has now homered 3 times in 2 games today to help the Sooners stay alive #WCWS pic.twitter.com/BLk2m3t7jh

Mackenzie Donihoo just homered again, for her third of the day, and I’m pretty sure every celebration at the plate has been more wildly enthusiastic than the last
