Game time, TV information, how to watch online

The top-seeded Florida softball team is in a good place after its 8-0 run-rule victory against No. 9 seed Texas A&M on Thursday. Now, it’s onto the next opponent: No. 13 seed LSU in the winners’ bracket. The Tigers won their opener against No. 5 seed UCLA, 2-1.

First pitch for the all-SEC matchup is set for 7 p.m. ET on Friday, with the winner being one win away from the Women’s College World Series’ championship series. It’s the first meeting this season between Florida (56-8) and LSU (48-20). The Gators are 27-32 all time against LSU, but the Gators own a 7-3 record in the last 10 meetings dating back to 2014, including a 4-0 win in the 2015 Women’s College World Series.

Florida’s offense came alive in its first game in Oklahoma City, Okla. The Gators (56-8) recorded 8 hits in the five-inning win and scored at least 1 run in each of the 4 innings they batted. Junior Aleshia Ocasio capped the scoring with a towering 3-run home run to right-center field in the fourth inning.

In the circle, USA Softball Collegiate Player of the Year Kelly Barnhill threw 4 shutout innings to improve to 25-3 on the season. Senior Delanie Gourley came on in relief and tossed a perfect fifth inning to end the game.

How to watch

The Florida-LSU game will be televised on ESPN. A live stream is also available through WatchESPN.

Notes

  • Florida now is 23-12 all time in the Women’s College World Series.
  • Florida’s run-rule victory against Texas A&M was the first in a Women’s College World Series game since Florida’s 11-0 win against Baylor to open the 2014 Women’s College World Series. The Gators went on to win the national championship that year.
  • Florida sophomore Amanda Lorenz is batting .524 in the NCAA Tournament (11 for 21) with 6 runs and 5 RBI as the Gators’ leadoff hitter.
  • With her scoreless fifth inning on Thursday, Gourley has now thrown 20 scoreless innings in the NCAA Tournament. The senior lefty has given up just 6 hits and 4 walks, while striking out 28 batters during that span.
