Kylie Chung drove in the only run of the game before NiJaree Canady polished off a complete-game one-hitter as No. 9 seed Stanford staved off elimination from the Women's College World Series with a 1-0 win over No. 7 seed Washington on Sunday in Oklahoma City.
Stanford will get a rematch with top-seeded Oklahoma, which has won 50 games in a row, on Monday for the right to go to the championship finals.
The Cardinal broke the scoreless tie in the bottom of the sixth. Chung hit a two-out single to left center that scored Taylor Gindlesperger, who had singled, stolen second and taken third on a Washington throwing error.
Canady (17-2) came out for the seventh and final inning and pitched a 1-2-3 frame. The freshman allowed a single to Baylee Klingler leading off the game before striking out nine without a walk.
Three Stanford errors gave Canady some jams to work out of, most notably in the top of the sixth, when the Huskies got runners at the corners with two outs before Kelley Lynch flied out.
Ruby Meylan (18-7) pitched all six innings for Washington and yielded one unearned run, four hits and a walk while fanning five.
