Oklahoma at Auburn underway. Sooners leave bases loaded in top of first, without scoring... Auburn does the same in the bottom of the second... Oklahoma is leading 2-0, top 6, and has the bases loaded with two out... Pop to 2B ends threat... Final score is 4-0 Sooners...

Florida State leads LSU 1-0, bottom 4... After Tigers tie the game in the top of the fifth on this slide, Noles put two across in bottom of sixth; final is 3-1...

Texas A&M and Tennessee are just beginning... Vols lead 3-0 in the bottom of the third; can blow it open with bases loaded and none out... 6-0 Tennessee, still bases loaded, still none out... 8-1 Vols is the final...

Kentucky at Oregon underway... Ducks take 1-0 lead... Oregon threatening to open up some daylight, with bases loaded and none out, bottom 6... Ground-out to first advances UO runners a base each, making score 2-0... Ground-out to short brings in another run, 3-0 Ducks... (Apparent) error on grounder to short makes it 4-0... UK retired uneventfully in top 7, 4-0 is your final...

Two-run shot from Amanda Lorenz has Florida on top of Alabama, 2-0, top 3... Still 2-0 as Bama bats in bottom of seventh. Tide, down to final out, gets runner on first via grounder to short, as ump rules throw pulled 1B-person off the bag; replay shows 1B-person's foot still was on bag, but evidently no replay appeals... All moot, as next batter grounds out to pitcher... Gators even the series... 

Arizona up 1-zip over Baylor, bottom 2, Wildcats with a runner on second with none out. No more scoring in this at-bat for U of A... However, Wildcats add a run in third on Katiyana Mauga's 92nd career homer to make it 2-0... Home-run record is 95 by Lauren Chamberlain... With the score still 2-0, top 6, Baylor puts together a triple and homer (by Ari Hawkins) to tie the score, 2-2... Same score, with Arizona batting in bottom of seventh; runners on first and second after walk to Mauga, none out... Sharp single to left loads bases... Line single to center wins it for Wildcats, 3-2...

UCLA up 1-zip on Ole Miss, but Rebels get lead-off runner on first in bottom of second... A Bruin throwing error gives Ole Miss runners on second and third with one out... Nice catch in left for UCLA saves a run... Infield pop-up ends Rebel threat... Mississippi down to its final three outs, as it comes up in the bottom of the seventh, trailing 1-0... Rebels go down quietly, Bruins become first team to qualify for Women's College World Series...

Washington takes early 5-0 lead over Utah, aided substantially by first-inning three-run homer...   Utes get back into game in top of fourth with their own three-run blast... Huskies trying to pad their 5-3 lead in bottom of fourth, with runners on first and second and one out... Walk loads the bases... Morganne Flores, who homered earlier for Washington, trying to do it again... She does, adding a grand-slam to her earlier three-run shot! 9-3 Huskies...
