The key for Arizona was to keep the ball in the yard. That was not the case in Stillwater. Oklahoma State bashed three home runs en route to an 8-0 five-inning run-rule win.

The Cowgirls had three batters in a four at-bat stretch to crush a homer. Karli Godwin, who finished with three RBIs, hit a two-out third-inning solo home run off Aissa Silva. Then Claire Timm and Micaela Wark went back-to-back to open the fourth and end Silva’s outing. Six different Cowgirls had an RBI in the win.

Lexi Kilfoyl kept the ball on the ground as she typically does. The Big 12 Pitcher of the Year is known for her dropball used it well against the powerful Arizona lineup. The Wildcats only mustered three hits, all three singles against Kilfoyl. She induced nine groundouts in the win preventing the Wildcats from lifting the ball.

It also helps when Tallen Edwards makes plays at third base like she did in the second inning.

Oklahoma State can secure its fifth straight appearance to the Women’s College World Series with a win on Saturday at 7 p.m. ET. Ivy Rosenberry will likely get the ball for Oklahoma State and Arizona could turn to Brooke Mannon.
