TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Scott Sitz pitched four scoreless innings and Florida State beat Alabama 11-1 Monday in the completion of a suspended game to reach the super regionals for the fourth straight year.

Florida State finished off its victory in the Tallahassee Regional. The game was halted in the sixth inning Sunday night because of rain and lightning with the Seminoles leading 8-1.

When it resumed, Sitz took over and posted his first save of the season. Florida State (45-17) will host a super regional against the Texas A&M-Arizona winner.

Mike McGee (4-3) allowed only two hits through five innings before Taylor Dugas homered to lead off the sixth for the Crimson Tide (35-28). The game was halted shortly thereafter.

McGee hit three doubles, Jayce Boyd homered and doubled, and regional MVP James Ramsey had three of Florida State's season-high 19 hits.
