OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Dallas Escobedo threw a five-hit shutout, Mandy Urfer hit a two-run homer and top-seeded Arizona State beat Baylor 4-0 Sunday to reach the finals of the Women's College World Series.

Annie Lockwood added an RBI double and Lesley Rogers a run-scoring single for the Sun Devils (58-6), who will face Florida or Alabama in the best-of-three series starting Monday night.

The offensive struggles continued for the Bears (47-15), who scored just two runs in four games at the World Series -- both on game-ending home runs in extra innings.

Escobedo (35-3) got the better of Whitney Canion (31-12), who hurled a 13-inning shutout to get the Bears into the semifinals.

The Sun Devils are back in the championship series for the first time since winning the title in 2008.
