Lady Vols Beat Texas At WCWS
by Dave Staley
Lauren Gibson hit a solo home run in the first inning, Tennessee's Renfroe sisters combined on a five-hitter shutout and the Lady Vols reached the Women's College World Series finals by beating Texas 2-1 on Sunday night.
Blaire Luna (31-7) struck out 12 in her second complete game of the day for fourth-seeded Texas (51-10). She forced in a run in the sixth when she hit Cheyanne Tarango with a pitch and issued three walks.
Seventh-seeded Tennessee (52-10) is in the finals for the second time. The Lady Vols were beaten in three games by Arizona in 2007, winning Game 1 before Monica Abbott took a shutout into extra innings in a Game 2 loss.
Pinch-hitter Lindsey Stephens led off the seventh by homering to center field off of Ellen Renfroe, who had relieved older sister Ivy Renfroe (22-4) to get out of a jam in the fifth.
