TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Max Williams hit a three-run home run to cap a nine-run fifth inning and No. 8 national seed Florida State went on to defeat Central Florida 12-3 on Sunday night to claim the championship at the Tallahassee Regional of the NCAA Tournament.

The Seminoles (45-15) advance to the super regionals, which begin on Friday.

Jack Zyska, who hit the go-ahead home run in UCF’s win over Stetson earlier in the day, went deep to stake the Knights (37-22) to a 2-0 lead in the first inning. That score held until the fifth, when FSU scored nine runs on five hits.

Cam Smith hit a two-run home run with one out to get the big inning rolling. Three batters later, Jaime Ferrer laced a two-run double down the left-field line. Jaxson West delivered a two-out, two run single and Williams followed with his three-run blast.

The Knights scored single runs in the sixth and seventh innings then Florida State wrapped it up with a three-run seventh, the only hit coming on Marco Dinges’ single to shortstop. ___
