Kinsley Washington's two-out RBI single earned No. 2 UCLA (56-6) a 5-4 win over No. 1 Oklahoma (57-6) in the Women's College World Series on Tuesday night, sweeping the Sooners in two games in the championship series to win the national title.
OU pulled within one on a solo home run by senior third baseman Sydney Romero in the third inning.
After the Sooners had tied it, UCLA got another solo home run in the fifth inning by Brianna Tautalafua to break a 3-3 tie and go up 4-3. The win marks UCLA's 118th national title and the program's first championship since 2010. Trying to save its championship hopes, Oklahoma's Shay Knighten hit a solo home run in the top of the seventh to tie the game at 4-4, but her team's defense couldn't keep UCLA off the board in the second half of the inning.
The Bruins then loaded the bases on a walk, a single and a bunt single, but were again unable to convert it into any runs. A passed ball from senior catcher Paige Halstead put that runner into scoring position, and a line drive to left brought her in to make it 3-3. UCLA ace and National Collegiate Softball Player of the Year Rachel Garcia was able to outduel Oklahoma ace Juarez, with both pitchers throwing over 120 pitches.
One of three players to log multiple hits against Oklahoma's Giselle Juarez on Tuesday night, Washington came to the plate with Colleen Sullivan on second and the Sooners needing one out to end the inning. She pitched five innings in Game 1 against the Sooners and all seven in Game 2, and she had a walk-off home run in the Bruins' semifinal win against Washington Sunday.
Garcia was in the circle again for UCLA, having started every game of the WCWS so far and pitching all but two of the total innings. The endured a knockout punch in the very first inning and, unlike Game 1, showed the heart and fight of a champion and deserving of their top ranking.
