Morgan’s one-hitter leads No. 1 seed Texas past Florida, into the semifinals of the Women’s CWS

OKLAHOMA CITY — Mac Morgan pitched a one-hitter and No. 1 seed Texas rolled past No. 4 Florida in five innings Saturday, 10-0, to reach the semifinals of the Women’s College World Series.

Morgan took a no-hitter in the fifth inning before Katie Kistler led off the fifth with a single.

Morgan threw only 71 pitches. The junior’s success led the Longhorns to rest freshman standout Teagan Kavan, who threw a one-hitter in a win over Stanford on Thursday.

Texas (54-8) needs one win Monday to reach the best-of-three championship series. The Longhorns are seeking their first national championship after a runner-up finish in 2022.

Florida (52-14) will play No. 14 Alabama in an elimination game on Sunday.

Florida pulled ace Keagan Rothrock in the first inning. The SEC Freshman of the Year gave up four points and recorded just one clean sheet.

Ava Brown replaced Rothrock, and the first batter she faced, Alyssa Washington, hit a 3-run homer. Texas scored five runs in the inning to take control.

Mia Scott’s solo shot with two outs in the fourth made it 6-0, and Katie Stewart’s three-run explosion later in the inning made it 9-0.
