2011 NCAA Softball, Florida Vs. Alabama Score: Gators Smash WCWS Inning Record

The Florida Gators just posted the biggest single inning in the history of the Women's College World Series, opening up on the Alabama Crimson Tide with 11 runs. It was the first inning, too, meaning the Tide have some tough decisions to make over the next four innings, as this almost certainly sets up a rematch for the evening to decide which team will advance to the Championship Series.

Even more amazing: Alabama had posted 30 straight scoreless innings coming in to the game and 22 shutouts on the season. Once Florida reached the seven-run mark, that became the highest total Bama had given up all year. And then Brittany Schutte belted a grand slam.

Alabama responded with a home run off the bat of Jazlyn Lunceford to make it 11-1 at the end of the first, but unless they can score in a bunch, that fifth-inning run rule is going to come into play in Oklahoma City.
