The Sooners capped things off on Monday afternoon by defeating Tulsa 3-0 in the Regional's de facto championship game, and they will now travel to the Southern Plains to face the Auburn Tigers in the Super Regionals.

That score held as the Sooners escaped trouble in the second, third and fourth innings by getting a third out with runners on base. "Coming out knowing that my team had my back no matter what and just executing the game plan".

OU might have the advantage over NDSU with Mariah Lopez and Paige Lowary both under 2.00 ERA on the season, but it still seems Tulsa benefits the most. "When we lost, it was really hard, but I knew I needed to take a 30-minute breather to let it go so we could get back out there and play another game".

Playing on its home field, Oklahoma (51-9) was the visiting team in Saturday's elimination game and responded with two runs in the top of the first inning off freshman starter Autumn Storms.

Jacquelyn Sertic (19-23), who threw 213 pitches including 165 strikes in completing both games, retired Oklahoma in order in the bottom of the ninth.

"I knew that she would be exhausted and I saw her throw a little bit in the bullpen", NDSU coach Darren Mueller said. She benefitted from solid defense including bottom of the seventh.

Anderson, North Dakota State's first baseman, smashed a two-out two-run homer to centerfield to put the Sooners (50-8), the NCAA's No. 10 seed, down 2-0 during Friday's first-round game.

It was Women's College World Series hero pitcher Paige Parker looking like a mere mortal at times.

"I just made a decision to go for it", Mendes said of her first inning jolt.

At the time, it was the Sooners' third long ball over the last seven Watson pitches going back to the dramatic 10th-inning comeback Sunday. The Sooners won 1-0 at Tulsa earlier in the season. Parker recorded 10 strikeouts against Tulsa - a postseason best.

Watson, pitching her fourth day in a row, retired eight consecutive batters at one point after allowing the leadoff home run, before OU scored again.
