OKLAHOMA CITY — Washington got a no-hit pitching performance today from Danielle Lawrie and home runs from Dena Tyson and Ashlyn Watson to win its opener of the Women's College World Series in softball, 3-1.

Lawrie, the sophomore righthander from Langley, B.C., shut down the 14th-seeded DePaul Blue Demons, walking one and striking out nine.

After the Demons struck for a third-inning run helped by Lawrie's throwing error, Tyson got the Huskies the lead back in the bottom half of the inning. The team leader in homers with 17 - but without one since April 29 -- Tyson launched the first pitch she saw from Tracie Adix for a towering shot to deep left, scoring Ashley Charters ahead of her. Charters had doubled to lead off the inning.

Watson followed with a solo homer in the fourth, giving Lawrie an insurance run.

Adix, the senior product of Edmonds-Woodway High School who has had a phenomenal season, was less than effective. She was pulled in the fourth after allowing five hits.

Washington (41-17), No. 6 seed as established at the start of the postseason, next meets the winner of the game between No. 2 seed Northwestern and No. 7 seed Arizona State on Friday at 4 p.m. (PDT) on ESPN2.
