Seeded Florida beats LSU 7-0 in Women's College World Series

The University of Florida softball team secured a spot in the finals of the Women's College World Series with a 5-2 victory over Washington on Sunday at USA Hall of Fame Stadium.

The Aggies will play in an elimination game at 11 a.m. Saturday against the loser of this afternoon's LSU/UCLA game.

GAME 9 - LSU (47-21) vs. UCLA won a pair of one-run games against MS in the Super Regional that preceded the WCWS, including an 11-inning game in which Rachel Garcia threw 232 pitches.

Florida pushed its lead to four runs in the second, when the Gators scored three times on four hits.

In five strong innings, Parker struck out four and allowed five hits before she gave way to Lowary-who faced the minimum six batters to send the Sooners back to the finals. She played with OU from 1996 through 1998, arriving at OU just in time for Gasso's first season. "They just attacked my mistakes and made us pay for it". Janell Wheaton hit a solo homer in the top of the sixth and Kayli Kvistad hit a two-run homer in the seventh.

It barely shook Gourley, who induced a grounder to Kvistad to end the game - and finish piloting her team to a chance at a third national title in four years.

French crew in first America's Cup win, USA beaten
Land Rover BAR had a bad mark rounding halfway through the race and Groupama Team France went flying past and won by 53 seconds. Artemis also was penalized for being over the start line early. "It is just a shame we couldn't repay them in the races today".

Oregon's offense came to life on Saturday against Baylor, bouncing back from a loss to Pac-12 foe Washington on Thursday to stave off elimination.

Walton said the sting of losing last year's super regional after entering the NCAA tournament as the No. 1 national seed has been salved by getting back to Oklahoma City. "I'm really proud of not only their preparation and their work ethic, but their confidence in not only themselves, their catcher, their defense and our pitching coach".

Washington snapped Oregon's 15-game win streak. "We're competitors, so we both know each other's style some, although we haven't played them since (Florida coach Tim Walton) has been at Florida, so it is intriguing we are facing each other in this setting". We know that, and we know that we have to come out and play for our life."Keeli MilliganOn the game plan against Florida". Jordan Roberts was hit by a pitch. The senior was happy with Florida's win in her first World Series start.

Oregon's Megan Kleist (20-4) pitched a complete game in the loss. After Knighten's hit in the bottom of the fifth, Nicole Pendley followed with a double to score Knighten and chase Kleist.

The next game features No. 3 OR taking on No. 15 Baylor. Game 7 victor, 6 p.m. The Ducks will have to win twice against the Sooners to keep their season alive. We'll go hit tomorrow, and we'll rally around each other."Tori VidalesOn this game vs. game one against Tennesee".
