OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Jocelyn Alo’s go-ahead homer in the sixth inning helped Oklahoma beat Florida State 6-2 on Wednesday night and force a decisive Game 3 for the Women’s College World Series title.

Alo’ s homer gave the Sooners the Division I single-season record for home runs with 159. Giselle Juarez improved to 4-0 in the tournament and has allowed just three earned runs in 24 1/3 innings.

The deciding game will be played Thursday afternoon. Oklahoma is seeking its fifth national championship. Florida State is trying for its second title in four years.
