Jocelyn Erickson collects 4 RBIs as Florida knocks off Alabama at WCWS

florida, alabama

Jocelyn Erickson went 2-for-3 with four RBIs, blasting a three-run home run in the sixth inning, to lift Florida to a 6-4 victory over Alabama on Sunday in an elimination game in the Women’s College World Series in Oklahoma City.

The Gators (53-14) will take on second-seeded Oklahoma in the WCWS semifinals, which begin Monday morning. Florida would need to beat the Sooners twice to advance to the championship series. The Crimson Tide finished their season with a 39-20 record.

Erickson was a member of Oklahoma’s WCWS title team last season before transferring to Florida.

Keagan Rothrock (32-8) went the distance for Florida, allowing the four runs (three earned) on seven hits in her seven innings. She walked one and struck out five. Two of the runs Rothrock yielded came in the sixth, but Alabama’s comeback bid came up short.

Marlie Giles went 2-for-4 with a run and an RBI for the Tide. Alabama starter Kayla Beaver went four innings, giving up two runs and six hits to go along with one walk and zero strikeouts. Jocelyn Briski (10-6) took the loss after giving up Reagan Walsh’s RBI single in the fifth, which snapped a 2-2 tie.
