OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Hannah Rogers threw her fifth shutout of the postseason, Bailey Castro went 3 for 4 with a homer and two RBIs and Florida beat top-seeded Oregon 4-0 on Friday night in the Women's College World Series.

Florida (52-12) moved within a win of reaching the best-of-three championship series and will be off until Sunday. Oregon (55-8-1) will face an elimination game Saturday against Oklahoma or Louisiana-Lafayette.

The Gators have won seven of their eight NCAA tournament games by shutout, dominating the opposition. Florida's opening-round 11-0 rout of Baylor on Thursday was only the fourth five-inning run-rule win in the WCWS in the past 16 years.

Rogers (28-8) tossed her second straight three-hitter, having also blanked Baylor.

Castro homered in the second inning off Oregon starter Cheridan Hawkins (34-5) and started a three-run third-inning outburst for the Gators with an RBI single.
