Day one of the 2011 Women's College World Series began with a 1-0 victory by Alabama Crimson Tide softball over the California Golden Bears and ended with a 6-2 trouncing of the Missouri Tigers by the Florida Gators, bookending Round 1 in SEC victories.
Alabama starter Kelsi Dunne delivered six scoreless innings that included 11 strike outs, while Florida CF Michelle Moultrie contributed two hits, a home run, a stolen base and a walk.
Round 2 will see Bama draw the Baylor Bears, who topped Oklahoma State 1-0, and Florida take on top seed Arizona State, who slipped past Oklahoma 3-1. Interesting to see both Oklahoma teams fall with home state advantage, but these things happen.
