TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Kennesaw State's Jacob Bruce hit a game-winning, two-out, RBI double off the right-field wall in the seventh inning to advance the Owls to their first Super Regional with a 4-2 victory over Alabama.

Kennesaw State will play Louisville after winning the Tallahassee Regional on Monday in its first Division I postseason berth. The program moved to Division I in 2006.

Bruce also doubled to right field in the fifth inning and was the only Owl with multiple hits.

He threw 3 1/3 innings scoreless innings, struck out two, walked one and allowed one hit. Bergen pitched 8 2/3 scoreless innings to earn the win against the Crimson Tide in the regional opener last Friday. He was named the regional's Most Outstanding Player.

Thomas Burrows (4-2) took the loss.
