OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- Jordan Strickland hit a pair of two-run homers, Heather Stearns and Whitney Canion combined on a five-hitter and Baylor beat Florida State 7-2 Saturday in a Women's College World Series elimination game.

Baylor (48-15) advanced to play Kentucky later Saturday in another elimination game.

Florida State's national player of the year, pitcher Lacey Waldrop, struggled for a second straight game. After giving up 10 hits in a 3-0 loss to Oregon, Waldrop (38-7) surrendered six hits to the Bears in four innings, including three in a three-run second inning highlighted by Strickland's first homer.

Trailing 5-0 in the fifth, Florida State (55-9) got a two-out, two-run double from Briana Hamilton off Stearns (14-4). But with the potential tying run at the plate, Canion retired Kelly Hensley.

Strickland followed in the sixth with her second homer. It was her third multi-homer game of the season.
