Candace Harper's two-out RBI-single ignited a six-run seventh inning, and tournament Most Outstanding Player Jocelyn Forest tossed a one-hit shutout as California defeated Arizona 6-0 in the championship game of the 2002 Women's College World Series. The national title is the first ever for California, which was also making its first-ever appearance in the title game.
Arizona pitcher Jennie Finch retired the first two batters she faced in the top of the seventh before walking Kaleo Eldredge. Kristen Morley followed with a single, setting the stage for Harper, who hit a looper to shallow centerfield to plate Eldredge with the game's first run. After Morley and Harper advanced to second and third on the throw to the plate, Veronica Nelson was intentionally walked to load the bases. Courtney Scott then drew a bases on balls to drive in the Golden Bears' second run. The walk was Finch's eighth of the game.
The Golden Bears put the game out of reach when Jessica Pamanian doubled to left to clear the bases and give California a 5-0 lead. Jenny Gladding replaced Finch and Chelsea Spencer greeted her with a double to left-center to cap the scoring.
Forest held Arizona hitless until allowing a two-out single to Mackenzie Vandergeest in the bottom of the fourth inning. She went on to retire 10 of the final 11 batters she faced, striking out the side in the bottom of the seventh to end the game. She finished with eight strikeouts.
For the championship, Forest posted a 4-0 record with a 0.50 earned run average. She struck out 33 batters in 25 innings pitched.
California becomes the third first-time WCWS champion in the last five years, joining Fresno State (1998) and Oklahoma (2000).
