WCWS Day 1 (2017)

Today features four opening-round games of the Women's College World Series. In three of these games, the teams are from the same conference: Florida vs. Texas A&M (both from the SEC), Oregon vs. Washington (both Pac 12), and Oklahoma vs. Baylor (both Big 12). The exception to all the intraconference play is the match-up of UCLA (Pac 12) and LSU (SEC).

Florida is threatening to blow out Texas A&M, as the Gators lead 5-0 in the bottom of the fourth, and have runners at first and second with one out... Aleshia Ocasio promptly homers, making it 8-0... That score is the final, as Florida wins in run-rule fashion...

LSU has edged UCLA, 2-1, in the second game of the day...

Washington bests Oregon, 3-1...

And in the final game of the day, Oklahoma leads Baylor, 4-1, with the Sooners batting in the bottom of the second... Sooners close it out, 6-3. Was 6-1 OU entering Baylor (top) half of seventh and shaky Sooner infield defense helped Bears score a couple of runs.
