One game to decide everything.

Despite being outhit 9-to-4, Alabama has a chance to win its first national championship in Women's Softball.

Head coach Patrick Murphy loves the chemistry of his team, according to Graham Hays of ESPN.

"Our team just enjoys each other," Gibson said. "No matter where we are, if we're on the field, if we're in a restaurant, if we're in the hotel, we're always having a good time together. It's just any little thing like that can just loosen us up and be like, 'You know what, remember this is just us playing together.'"

Chemistry will take you a long way if you have the talent to back it up. Alabama has the talent, and it seems like the chemistry is gelling well enough to win the national championship.

Head coach Patty Gasso knows how uncharacteristic her team played in Game 2, but she still loved to see the fight in the seventh inning, according to Andrew Gilman of SoonerSports.com.

"A very uncharacteristic game for us," Gasso said. "We accepted it. One of the greatest things that happened was in the seventh inning. The message we sent and the confidence we brought. We are going to compete our rear ends off for a national championship."

I loved the fight despite being down 8-1 last night. It showed character. Even though the scoreline says Alabama won by two runs, Oklahoma picked up a little momentum in that seventh inning.

Prediction

I'll stick with Oklahoma winning the national championship. They will get their bats rolling earlier, and they won't allow the big inning.

Oklahoma 4, Alabama 2
