Hannah Rogers threw a four-hitter to help Florida defeat Alabama 5-0 in Game 1 of the best-of-three national championship series Monday night.
    
Rogers had a perfect game through four innings and a one-hitter going into the bottom of the seventh in the matchup of Southeastern Conference rivals.
    
Florida (54-12) now is just one win from its first national title after runner-up finishes in 2009 and 2011. Game 2 will be played Tuesday night.
    
Jackie Traina got the loss for Alabama (53-12). She gave up five runs in 6 1/3 innings after having allowed just one earned run in her first three games during the World Series.
    
The Crimson Tide hadn't been shut out since Feb. 16.
