Elijah MacNamee, who hit walk-off home runs in consecutive weekends against Florida State in the Regional round and Vanderbilt in the Super Regionals, moved Stovall to second with a single up the middle.

After Justin Foscue fouled out on a bunt attempt with no outs, Alexander drove an 0-2 pitch to right field over the head of Washington's Christian Jones. Washington's outfielders were playing in with Stovall in scoring position at second base.
