Alabama 12 UCF 5
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Alabama scored six runs in the bottom of the seventh inning en route to a season-high 12 runs to post a 12-5 victory over the Central Florida Knights in the elimination game of the Tallahassee Regional at Dick Howser Stadium on Sunday afternoon. Alabama will now face Florida State tonight in the championship game of the Tallahassee Regional, which begins at 5 p.m. CT.
“I’m really proud of our team, that was a very quick turnaround from last night and a really tough game,” UA head coach Mitch Gaspard said. “I thought we showed some real toughness and character today to come out and play with the energy we played with. It started with Jonathan Smart on the mound who was tremendous again. They scored some runs early, be he was able to keep it at singles and settled in.”
