OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Jessica Burroughs threw a three-hitter to help Florida State defeat Michigan 1-0 in a Women’s College World Series elimination game Sunday.

Michigan hung tough, despite playing just 12 hours after losing to Oklahoma. Megan Betsa allowed one hit in the loss for the Wolverines, last year’s national runner-up.

In the third inning, Florida State’s Morgan Klaevemann walked, Jessica Warren reached on a fielder’s choice and moved Klaevemann to second. Alex Powers walked to load the bases and Klaevemann scored on a wild pitch. Sydney Broderick walked with two outs to load the bases again, but Betsa escaped further damage.

Michigan (52-7) got two runners on with two outs in the top of the sixth, but Burroughs got out of it with a ground out.

Florida State (55-9) will play Auburn on Sunday night. The Seminoles need a win to stay in the world series.
