The Arizona State Sun Devils made an unsurprising entry to the College World Series championship after beating the exhausted Baylor Bears squad. Mandy Urfer hit a two run homer, Annie Lockwood nailed in an RBI double, Lesley Rogers managed an infield single, Dallas Escobedo pitched a five hitter, and the Sun Devils were on their way to the title game.
But it was the Florida Gators who made noise with their bats, shocking the Alabama Crimson Tide with two must-win performances. Florida set the tone Sunday morning with an incredible eleven run first inning, cruising to a 16-2 victory and knocking Kelsi Dunne out early. Dunne had beaten Cal to start out the College World Series double-elimination slate, but she had no answer for the Gators, who piled on the runs in both matchups, ending her Alabama career on an ignominious note.
