Alabama and Florida to battle for WCWS crown

06/01/2014

Jaclyn TrainaOKLAHOMA CITY – It’ll be an all-SEC championship series at ASA Hall of Fame Stadium as Florida and Alabama capped perfect 3-0 preliminary round records with victories on Sunday.

The Gators took down Baylor 6-3 in the day’s opening game to move on to the best-of-three finale, which begins Monday night. Taylor Schwarz had the biggest hit of the day for Florida, driving in three with a bases-clearing double in the top of the fifth.

The Crimson Tide are back in the championship series for the first time since 2012, when they won it all. Hayley McCleney broke a scoreless tie with top-seeded Oregon in the fifth inning with a solo home run. Jaclyn Traina did the rest, hurling a four-hit shutout as Alabama downed the Ducks 2-0.

Kevin Kugler and Leah Amico will have all the action of the best-of-three WCWS Championship Series beginning on Monday night at 7:45 PM Eastern on WestwoodOne Sports and right here on WestwoodOneSports.com.
