WCWS: Oklahoma, Cal, Alabama and Arizona State win


OKLAHOMA CITY — Day one of the 2012 Women’s College World Series is in the books and Oklahoma, Cal, Alabama and Arizona State have the upper hand in the double-elimination preliminary round after wins on Thursday.

Oklahoma downed South Florida 5-1 and will now take on Cal, who came from behind to defeat LSU 5-3. Alabama beat SEC rivals Tennessee 5-3 and will now face Arizona State, who notched a 3-1 victory over Pac-12 foes Oregon.
