Katelynn Carwile drove in three runs and Morgyn Wynne hit a two-run double as No. 6 Oklahoma State eliminated No. 15 Utah from the Women's College World Series with an 8-0, five-inning rout on Friday.
The game ended early due to the mercy rule after the Cowgirls' Lexi Kilfoyl completed a three-hit shutout by retiring the Utes in the fifth inning. Kilfoyl walked one while striking out three.
Oklahoma State remains alive in Bracket 2 and will face either No. 3 Florida State or No. 7 Washington on Sunday in another elimination game. The Seminoles and the Huskies will meet in a winners-bracket game on Saturday.
Utah's WCWS experience wound up lasting just one day. In a game that was postponed from Thursday, the Utes fell 4-1 to Washington on Friday afternoon before they were sent home by Oklahoma State.
Carwile's two-run single in the first inning opened the scoring.
The Cowgirls pulled away in the second with a six-run rally. Chyenne Factor and Kiley Naomi each had an RBI single before another run scored on a wild pitch. Wynne then delivered her two-run hit, and Carwile capped the surge with another run-scoring hit.
Utah starting pitcher Sydney Sandez was charged with six runs on five hits in one-plus inning. She walked two and struck out one. Utes reliever Halle Morris yielded two runs on three hits and no walks in three innings. She fanned one.
