Oklahoma has taken a 1-0 lead over Cal in the top of the third. The Sooners had the bases loaded with none out, so the Golden Bears are lucky not to be further behind. OU ups its lead to 2-0, with Cal coming up in the bottom of the fourth. OU's Keilani Ricketts pitches a two-hitter, striking out 16, as the Sooners beat Cal 3-0.

Alabama has edged Arizona State, 2-1, in the nightcap.

Oklahoma and Alabama are now off until Sunday, while the other teams sort themselves out through the losers' bracket on Saturday.
