Oklahoma, Florida State Advance To 2023 WCWS Semifinals
Game Seven: Oklahoma 9, Tennessee 0
The Oklahoma Sooners continued to show just how powerful they are, after sending No. 4 Tennessee to the losers' bracket in a five-inning shutout.
Tiare Jennings and Kinzie Hansen both sent deep home runs over the wall, which kick-started enough momentum to keep the runs flooding in for the Sooners.
The lone hit from Tennessee came within the first at-bat of the game from Kiki Milloy. With the Vols' offense unable to produce any additional action, Tennessee was run-ruled for the first time this season.
With the win, Oklahoma extends its winning streak to 50 games and advances to the national semifinals on Monday at 12 p.m. ET on ESPN against the winner of the Washington-Stanford game.
Tennessee will play a win-or-go-home game against Oklahoma State on Sunday at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN2. The Vols will now have to win three games in a row to reach the championship series.
Game Eight: Florida State 3, Washington 1
Florida State gutted out a win over Washington to advance to the national semifinals.
Kathryn Sandercock got the win in the circle, allowing just one run, while Devyn Flaherty led the Seminoles' offense with two hits and two runs scored.
The Huskies brought the go-ahead run to the plate in the seventh inning, but Florida State’s Josie Muffley responded with an excellent double play after catching a line drive over her head and then doubling up the runner at second base to seal the victory.
Florida State will play the winner of Sunday’s Tennessee-Oklahoma State game on Monday at 7 p.m. ET on ESPN.
Washington will try to advance when it faces Stanford on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on ABC.
