Women's College World Series Final: ASU Goes For Championship Against Florida

The Sun Devils came one step closer to immortality on Monday evening, handily defeating the Florida Gators 14-4 in the first game of a best-of-3 series between the two schools. At 58-6, the ASU softball team has proven that they are the real deal, and quite possibly unstoppable.

ASU will rely once again on freshman pitcher Dallas Escobedo, a workhorse who has thrown a ton of pitches for the Devils in the postseason. Referred to on ESPN as "effectively wild," Escobedo is still learning how to harness her incredible talent.

Kaylyn Castillo, Annie Lockwood and Krista Donnenwirth are all looking to build on their excellent offensive output from Monday night, where the three stars combined to drive in ten runs off of the Gators. On a night where shortstop Katelyn Boyd went hitless, the heart of the order really stepped up tp provide some relief.

What can Florida do to remain competitive against the Sun Devils? It's difficult to say. ASU seems to be playing on another level, determined to blow away everyone that stands in their way of the school's second NCAA title in the past four years.

Game two of the WCWS Final will be held at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium in Oklahoma City this evening at 5:00 PM Pacific time on ESPN2 and ESPN3.com.
