OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Callie Parsons drove in three runs, Keilani Ricketts threw a three-hitter and Oklahoma rolled to a 10-2, five-inning victory over Big 12 rival Texas on Saturday in a winners' bracket game in the Women's College World Series.
Oklahoma (54-4) won for the third time in four meetings this season against its Red River rival and needs one more win to make a return trip to the best-of-3 finals. Texas (50-9) will face Nebraska or Florida in an elimination game Sunday.
Ricketts (33-1) hadn't given up a hit in the tournament until Stephanie Ceo and Brejae Washington singled to key a two-run third inning for the Longhorns.
The Sooners answered with a six-run third. Three runs came on an error by Texas pitcher Kim Bruins, who overthrew first base on a bunt attempt by Brianna Turang, allowing Turang and two other runners to score.
The game ended by the run rule in the fifth, when Georgia Casey's single scored Lauren Chamberlain, who had tripled.
