Kinsley Washington’s walk-off RBI single in the bottom of the seventh delivered UCLA softball its 12th national championship Tuesday night in Oklahoma City. The Bruins defeated Oklahoma 5-4 for the two-game final series sweep.

With two outs, Washington flared a looping single to left field that fell a few steps in front of Oklahoma outfielder Falepolima Aviu, who corralled it on a short hop and quickly fired home. The throw was too late, as Colleen Sullivan evaded the sweep tag to score the winning run.

Sullivan reached second base just a few moments earlier on a wild pitch.

UCLA took the field for the top of the seventh up 4-3 and seemed set to squash Oklahoma’s hopes of forcing a Game 3 right there. But down to their final out, the Sooners tied it up on a Shay Knighton homer just beyond the center field wall.

That set the stage for Washington’s heroics the very next half inning. She finished 2-for-4 on the day with that final RBI.
