UT is chasing its third trip to the College World Series in four seasons.

Ensley slugged a three-run homer in the seventh for the final homer for the Vols on Friday. He had three hits in the five-hole with two runs and four RBIs.

Blake Burke got Tennessee started with a solo homer off the scoreboard in the first. Christian Moore followed in the third with a two-run homer to right-center. Billy Amick blasted a solo shot off the light pole in left two batters later for a 5-2 Tennessee lead after UT briefly fell behind 2-1.

UT got six hits, six runs and five RBIs from the top three in the lineup.

Tennessee was cruising with AJ Causey on the mound until a Moore error with one out in the fifth. The Purple Aces got a two-out, two-strike double off the wall from Kip Fougerousse and a run-scoring single from Chase Hug to tie the game 5-5.

Causey pitched around trouble in the sixth. He had two on with one out before getting a groundout then freezing Evansville's Simon Scherry for a strikeout with two in scoring position.
