TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Jack Zyska broke a tie with a seventh-inning home run and Central Florida went on to defeat Stetson 5-2 on Sunday in an elimination game at the Tallahassee Regional of the NCAA Tournament.

Stetson carried a 2-1 lead into the bottom of the seventh inning before UCF rallied with three runs. The Knights scored their final run in the eighth.

In the seventh, Andrew Sundean tied it with a two-out pinch-hit double that scored Andrew Brait. Zyska followed with a two-run homer to left for a 4-2 lead.

In the eighth, Braden Calise homered to left for the final score.

UCF (37-20) moved on to face regional host Florida State later Sunday with a super regional berth at stake. The Seminoles would advance with a win, while UCF would need a win Sunday and another on Monday in order to move on.

UCF reliever Dominic Castellano (7-0) pitched the seventh and the eighth for the win. Kris Sosnoski finished for his sixth save.

Leadoff batter Kyle Jones had two hits and scored both runs for the Hatters (41-22). ___
