OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) – Emily Carosone’s grand slam in the bottom of the eighth inning lifted Auburn to a stunning 11-7 victory over Oklahoma on Tuesday night to force a deciding Game 3 for the NCAA softball championship.

Oklahoma led 7-0 after scoring six runs in the top of the second, but Auburn scored five runs with two outs in the bottom of the inning.

Auburn’s Kasey Cooper hit a two-run homer to tie the score at 7 in the bottom of the fourth.

Oklahoma’s Shay Knighten appeared to have hit a two-run homer in the sixth, but Tiffany Howard leaped at the fence and snagged it to end the inning with the score still tied at 7.

Game 3 is Wednesday night.

Oklahoma’s school-record win streak was snapped at 31 games. The Sooners had last lost on April 2.
