Natalie Lugo pitched six innings of scoreless relief and Cheyenne Lindsey went 3 for 3 to help 14th-seeded Florida beat Oregon State 7-1 on Thursday night in the Women’s College World Series opener for both teams.

Lugo gave up one hit and struck out six.

Florida advanced to play seventh-seeded Oklahoma State — a 4-2 winner over Arizona in the late game — on Saturday.

Oregon State will face Arizona in an elimination game Friday.

Avery Goelz had two hits and knocked in three runs and Charli Echols hit a solo homer for the Gators.

Oregon State's Sarah Haendiges pitched 4 2/3 innings and gave up seven runs on 10 hits in the loss.
