OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Blaire Luna struck out 14 in a one-hit shutout, Kim Bruins hit a three-run homer and Texas beat Florida 3-0 Sunday to knock the Gators out of the Women's College World Series.
Luna (32-6), the nation's strikeout leader, gave up only a one-out single to Taylore Fuller in the fourth inning that zipped right down the left-field line. She had thrown a no-hitter in the super regionals for fourth-seeded Texas (51-9).
Bruins provided the Longhorns' only offense with a drive that just barely cleared the left-field fence in the top of the fourth inning. Taylor Hoagland and Taylor Thom drew walks before Bruins' three-run shot, which went to almost the exact spot she hit a home run in the Longhorns' World Series opener against Arizona State.
Hannah Rogers (33-7) gave up five hits and walked four for the Gators (58-9), who won a 15-inning elimination game a night earlier.
