By Alabama News Network

Haylie McCleney homered in the bottom of the fifth inning to break a scoreless tie and Alabama beat Oregon 2-0 on Sunday, setting up an all-Southeastern Conference best-of-three championship series in the Women's College World Series.

The Crimson Tide will play Florida for the championship, starting Monday night. The Gators beat Baylor 6-3 earlier Sunday.
Alabama led 2-0 heading into the top of the seventh, giving the Ducks one last shot. Oregon's Kailee Cuico's single brought the tying run to the plate with no outs. Janelle Lindvall put one over the left-field fence, but it barely sailed foul, and she struck out looking on the next pitch.
Koral Costa singled with two outs to keep the Ducks alive, but Jaclyn Traina struck out the final batter to preserve her four-hitter.
