OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Jackie Traina homered and threw a
two-hitter, Kaila Hunt and Jazlyn Lunceford also connected and
Alabama beat top-seeded California 5-2 on Sunday to reach the
Women's College World Series finals for the first time.

The No. 2 seed Crimson Tide (58-7) ended a Sunday jinx at the
World Series after getting eliminated in the semifinals three of
the past four years. They were knocked out on a game-ending grand
slam in 2009 and lost twice last year just one win away from the
championship round.

The best-of-three championship series starting Monday night will
pit the Tide against fourth-seeded Oklahoma, which beat defending
champion Arizona State 5-3 on Sunday.

Danielle Henderson hit a two-run homer for California but also
got picked off to diffuse a rally in the sixth.
