OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Kim Bruins hit a two-run home run in a four-run fifth inning to help Texas beat Arizona State 6-3 on Thursday night in their opening game in the Women's College World Series.

Texas (50-8) advanced to a Friday night game against the winner of the late game between Oklahoma and Michigan. Arizona State (50-11) will play the Oklahoma-Michigan loser in an elimination game Saturday.

Arizona State took a 2-0 lead in the fifth inning. Elizabeth Caporuscio pulled a two-strike pitch past first baseman Karina Scott for the Sun Devils' first hit of the game, Bailey Wigness followed with a single and Alix Johnson doubled into the gap in left center.

Texas rallied in the bottom of the inning, with Bruins hitting her home run that fell out of Caporuscio's glove and over the wall in left.

Texas added two more runs in the sixth.
