Wass, White homer in Alabama's win

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Wade Wass and Mikey White homered, left-hander Justin Kamplain pitched eight scoreless innings and Alabama eliminated Florida State 6-5 in NCAA tournament play Saturday.

Kamplain (7-3) was lifted after surrendering a leadoff single in the ninth, and Florida State capitalized on the wildness of two Alabama relievers for its runs. The Seminoles (43-17) managed only eight singles in their two tournament losses.

White led off the third inning with a line drive to left field for his seventh home run of the season to give Alabama a 1-0 lead. It was the Crimson Tide's only earned run off Florida State ace Luke Weaver (8-4).

Alabama (35-23) scored a pair of unearned runs in the fifth to take a 3-0 lead. Wass' two-out grounder went through the legs of Florida State third baseman Jose Brizuela, allowing White to score. Austen Smith followed with his second double of the game to score Wass, who added a two-run homer in the seventh.
