GAINESVILLE, Fla.

After Florida (41-3) scored six times in the first two frames, the Knights (23-20) manufactured a run in the fourth inning. Junior centerfielder Megan Greenwell beat out a bunt single, then swiped her 25th stolen base of the season. The Miami, Fla., native came around to score on Rotton's sac fly to the warning track in left field.

Base knocks were also registered by senior right fielder Willow Kalinen and sophomore catcher Cassady Brewer.
Freshman Alea White notched one strikeout in the complete game and fell to 16-12 on the campaign.
