COLUMBIA, Mo. — Florida utilized a balanced attack Friday to post an 8-6 win over Missouri (12-21, 4-12 SEC) and boost its winning streak to seven games in the series opener at Taylor Stadium. The Gators (21-18, 9-7 SEC) had a season-high 18 hits, as their top six hitters in the lineup chipped in with multiple-hit outings, while the quartet of sophomore Taylor Gushue (3-for-5), freshman Richie Martin (3-for-6), senior Vickash Ramjit (3-for-4, two runs) and sophomore Josh Tobias (3-for-5, two RBI) had three hits apiece.

Florida batted a scorching 10-for-17 (.588) with two outs and notched six two-out RBI. Junior right-hander Jonathon Crawford (3-5) captured his second consecutive start after overcoming a four-run first inning and sophomore Johnny Magliozzi worked the final 1.2 innings to register his 10th save in 11 opportunities. The teams play at 3 p.m. today. Freshman left-hander Danny Young (1-3, 3.51) will oppose Missouri sophomore righty Brett Graves (0-5, 5.24).
