Florida edges Nebraska 9-8 in 15 innings at WCWS

Lauren Haeger and Jessica Damico scored on shortstop Alicia Armstrong's fielding error in the 15th inning, and Florida eliminated Nebraska from the Women's College World Series with a 9-8 victory Saturday night.

Armstrong was able to get in front of Taylore Fuller's sharp grounder up the middle, but it hopped up and hit her before careening into center field.

The 14th-seeded Cornhuskers (45-16) scored once in the bottom of the 15th, but their chance for a third tying rally ended with Tatum Edwards getting called out on a blown call at third base.

Nebraska had scored three times in the seventh to force extra innings, and Taylor Edwards tied it again in the 10th with a home run to match Briana Little's solo shot in the top half of the inning.

It ended up as the fifth game to go 15 innings or longer at the Women's College World Series. The longest game ever, in 1984, lasted 25 innings.
