OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Giselle "G'' Juarez threw a complete game to help Oklahoma beat Alabama 3-2 on Thursday night in the Women's College World Series.

The Sooners set up a matchup against rival Oklahoma State on Friday night with a berth in the semifinals on the line. The schools have never met in the World Series. Oklahoma State beat Florida 2-1 on the strength of pitcher Samantha Show's two homers.

Juarez gave up just two runs on four hits and struck out nine for top-seeded Oklahoma (55-3). Sydney Romero had two hits and scored twice for the Sooners. Claire Jenkins had two hits and scored twice for the eighth-seeded Crimson Tide (57-9).

The game was tied at 1-all in the third when Jocelyn Alo's single scored Romero to give the Sooners a 2-1 lead.

Alabama's Jenkins hit a homer in the fifth inning to tie it at 2. Oklahoma's Nicole Mendes tripled in the bottom of the sixth to score pinch-runner Raegan Rogers and give the Sooners the lead for good.
