Tennessee's Gretchen Aucoin fires to the plate during the fifth inning of the Lady Vols' Super Regional softball game against Florida State on May 22, 2015.

KNOXVILLE -- Tennessee's softball team faces a decisive game in its NCAA Super Regional after Florida State ran out to a 6-1 win in the second game of the teams' best-of-three series at Lee Stadium on Friday afternoon.

Jessica Warren homered twice for the Seminoles (49-13) and the offense never got going for the Lady Volunteers (46-15).

The rubber match, whose winner will play in the Women's College World Series in Oklahoma City next week, is slated for a 7:15 p.m. start on ESPN2.

After smacking a solo shot in Thursday's loss, Warren hit a two-run home run to right-center field in the bottom of the first inning and laced a second blast over the left-field wall to open the fourth inning.

The Seminoles added two more runs in the inning after Victoria Daddis followed up back-to-back singles with an RBI double and Bailey Schinella scored on a groundout.

Ellie Cooper's RBI single in the fifth inning scored Warren to make it 6-1.

Tennessee scored its only run in the third inning when Meghan Gregg, who delivered the walk-off RBI single on Thursday night, drove in Lexi Overstreet with a single to right field.

The run was unearned after Overstreet moved to second on a dropped fly ball.

After going the distance on Thursday night, Florida State's Jessica Burroughs pitched into the seventh inning on Friday and allowed just four hits and one run while striking out three.

The Lady Vols had three balls caught for outs at the warning track.
