UCLA softball beats Missouri, earns spot in Women’s College World Series

UCLA softball is heading back to Oklahoma City. For the first time since their 2010 championship run, the Bruins earned a spot in the Women’s College World Series — sweeping No. 10 Missouri this weekend.

The Tigers fell today in a 10-6 decision, one that followed UCLA’s 7-4 comeback win on Saturday. The No. 7 Bruins will open the WCWS on Thursday at 6:30 p.m. PT (ESPN2) against Pac-12 champion Oregon, which took two games in their regular-season series in April.
