FSU routs Alabama, will host Super Regional

TALLAHASSEE (AP) - After winning the program's 27th regional title Monday, the Seminoles will host a Super Reg-ional for the fourth straight season.

"It feels normal, I guess," senior pitcher/outfielder Mike McGee said.

McGee and Scott Sitz combined on a five-hitter and Florida State had a season-high 19 hits as the Seminoles defeated Alabama 11-1 to win the Tallahassee Regional Monday.

McGee (4-3) allowed just two hits through five innings before yielding a solo home run to Taylor Dugas to lead off the sixth Sunday night.

Then rain and lightning postponed the game until Monday. Florida State was leading 8-1 in the top of the sixth when play was halted.

Sitz then pitched four scoreless innings to earn his first save of the season as Florida State (45-17) needed just 49 minutes Monday to advance to a Super Regional against the Texas A&M-Arizona winner.

A sophomore right-hander, Sitz worked quickly, striking out three batters and generating easy ground balls.

The Seminoles are still in search of the program's first College World Series title, but they have been dominant in the regional round. FSU has reached the Super Regional 10 times in the 12 years since the format was introduced in 1999.

In the win over Alabama, FSU enjoyed its best game at the plate this season as seven Seminoles had multi-hit games.

Taiwan Easterling went 4-for-4 with two runs scored, McGee went 3-for-5 with three doubles and Jayce Boyd had a home run, double and two RBI.
