TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Freshman Geoffrey Bramblett threw a two-hitter and Alabama beat Georgia Southern 6-0 Sunday in an elimination game at the NCAA Tallahassee regional.
Ben Moore doubled twice, singled and drove in three runs to back Bramblett.
Alabama (36-23) must defeat Kennesaw State twice to advance to next week's super regionals. Kennesaw would advance with a win Sunday night.
Bramblett threw 124 pitches on a hot, humid afternoon. He allowed only two singles, struck out seven and walked two. He retired 14 straight batters during the middle innings and improved to 5-2 this season.
Moore's two-run double came during a three-run third inning as the Crimson Tide chased Will Jackson (3-3).
Georgia Southern finished at 40-23.
