Florida softball run ruled by No. 1 Texas during the College World Series

The top-seeded Texas Longhorns dominated No. 4 Florida 10-0 in a winner’s game of the Women’s College World Series Saturday night.

Texas homered three times and scored five times in the first and fourth inning. Gators starter Keagan Rothrock lasted just 14 pitches before getting the hook. No matter what film the Longhorns watched, they were ready for whatever threw them, leading to Rothrock’s eighth loss of the season.

Ava Brown kept the Longhorns off the board in the second and third, but things got ugly in the fourth. Mackenzie Wooten failed to replace Brown before Olivia Miller came out of the inning.

Texas starter Mac Morgan had a chance for a shortened no-hitter, but Friday night’s hero, Katie Kistler, recorded Florida’s only hit of the day in the top of the fifth. Morgan answered by inducing a ground ball for a double play.

Florida now played No. 14 Alabama on Sunday for a chance to play Oklahoma. the Gators would have to beat the Sooners twice to earn a spot in the College World Series Finals, but at this point in the year it’s one game at a time.
