FSU tops No. 1 Oklahoma in NCAA softball championship opener

Florida State freshmen Kalei Harding and Kaley Mudge have the Seminoles knocking on the door of a national title.

Harding homered and drove in four runs and Mudge had three hits, leading Florida State past No. 1 seed Oklahoma 8-4 in the opener of the Women’s College World Series championship on Tuesday night.

Sydney Sherrill added a two-run single during a five-run fourth inning for the 10th-seeded Seminoles (49-11-1), who need a victory on Wednesday or Thursday in the best-of-three series to win their second NCAA title in four years.

“It’s going to take all of us and all of our fight,” Mudge said.
