Two days after falling to Washington by a score of 2-0, the Oklahoma Sooners topped Arizona State by the same score to stay alive in the Women’s College World Series. The Sooners will face the Florida Gators in a elimination game at 6 p.m. CT this evening.
Paige Parker allowed only two hits and struck out seven batters en route to her ninth career WCWS win. On the offensive end, freshman Jocelyn Alo hit the 29th home run of the season. The third-inning solo shot leaves her only one shy of tying the NCAA freshman record.
