Baseball Championship Game of Tallahassee Regional Suspended
June 5, 2011
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The NCAA Tallahassee Regional Championship game between No. 3 seeded Alabama and No. 1 seeded Florida State was suspended at 7:45 p.m. ET when severe weather entered the Tallahassee area. Game six of the Tallahassee Regional will be completed on Monday, June 6 at 11 a.m. CT, at Mike Martin Field at Dick Howser Stadium.
The game was suspended with Alabama trailing Florida State 8-1 in the top of the sixth inning with no outs. Crimson Tide catcher Brock Bennett was at the plate with a 1-2 count when play was halted. UA center fielder Taylor Dugas has just homered for the first Crimson Tide run of the game.
Florida State scored three times in the second and fourth innings before scoring a pair of runs to open an 8-0 lead.
Should the "if necessary" game seven be required, it will be played 50 minutes after the conclusion of the suspended game, not at 5 p.m. CT as originally scheduled. There will be open admission to the suspended game. Should game seven be needed on Monday, the stadium will be cleared and fans will be required to have a ticket for game seven to re-enter the stadium.
Full radio coverage for Alabama's Monday action will be available on the Crimson Tide Sports Network, and can be heard on WFFN-FM 95.3 or WTSK-AM 790 in Tuscaloosa. The games will also be in SUN Sports, which are available on DirecTV channel 653 and DISH Network channel 422.
