OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Kelsey Stevens allowed six hits, Brittany Williams hit a two-run first-inning double and defending NCAA softball champion Oklahoma beat Louisiana-Lafayette 3-1 on Saturday in an elimination game in the Women's College World Series.
Callie Parsons added an inside-the-park home run in the sixth for Oklahoma (51-12), which advanced to play top-seeded Oregon in another elimination game Saturday night.
Louisiana-Lafayette (49-10-1) had beaten the Sooners in two of three games during a regular-season series but the Ragin' Cajuns couldn't come up with the key hit Saturday against Stevens (38-9), stranding 11 baserunners. Lexie Elkins hit a solo homer in the seventh for their only run.
In the first inning, Lauren Chamberlain reached on an error for the Sooners and Shelby Pendley walked before Williams' double to center field off Louisiana-Lafayette starter Christina Hamilton (29-4).
Hamilton allowed only three hits the rest of the way.
