OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Pitcher Lauren Haeger had two hits and allowed just one in a complete-game victory as defending champion Florida defeated Tennessee 7-2 Thursday in the opening game of the Women’s College World Series.
Haeger, the USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year, opened the scoring with a solo home run to left field in the bottom of the first inning. Kayli Kvistad followed with a two-run shot to center in the bottom of third to make it 3-0.
Haeger had a no-hitter going until Megan Geer’s two-run homer in the top of the fourth trimmed Florida’s lead to 3-2.
Florida added two runs in the fourth inning and two more in the sixth.
Tennessee had beaten Florida in the Southeastern Conference tournament, their only previous meeting this season.
