Tide Stays Alive

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Taylor Dugas homered and Alabama used 15 hits against five Central Florida pitchers to cruise to a 12-5
win in the Tallahassee Regional on Sunday.

Brock Bennett, Jared Reaves and Austen Smith each had three hits
for Alabama (35-27), which was to play Florida State (44-17) on
Sunday night.

Alabama left-hander Jonathan Smart (5-3), who had 10 saves in
the regular season, gave up 11 hits but allowed just two earned
runs in eight innings.

Erik Hempe went 3 for 4 with an RBI, and D.J. Hicks hit his 15th
home run of the season for Central Florida (39-23).

The game was tied at 4 in the bottom of the fifth when Alabama's
Brett Booth scored on a passed ball. Alabama added six runs in the
seventh to send UCF home.
