How to watch Florida Gators baseball vs. South Alabama in Gainesville Regional on TV, live stream
The Southeastern Conference baseball tournament didn't quite go the way the Florida Gators wanted, but they had done enough.
Now with an NCAA regional tournament in their backyard, the Gators are hoping to make a march to Omaha.
But the Gainesville Regional didn't start well for the Gators, either. After a lengthy rain delay, the hosts lost 5-3 to USF, the first time the Bulls beat the Gators since 1982. Now UF faces a must-win game Saturday against South Alabama, who lost to Miami Friday night.
Florida (38-20) had a good run at first in the SEC tourney -- the Gators scored 24 runs in wins over Kentucky, Mississippi State and Alabama. But Tennessee pitcher Camden Sewell chilled Florida's hot bats with six innings of shutout ball and the Volunteers knocked the Gators out in a 4-0 semifinal. During the tourney, leadoff hitter Jacob Young had five RBI, while Cory Acton and Sterlin Thompson drove in four runs each.
South Alabama (33-20) won the Sun Belt Tournament to clinch an automatic bid in the NCAAs. South Alabama was 27th in the NCAA with a 3.84 team ERA, led by starter Miles Smith and reliever Jase Dalton. The Jaguars lost 1-0 to Miami in their Gainesville Regional opener. Tyler Lehrmann and Jackson Boyd combined for eight strong innings, surrendering only a bases-loaded sacrifice fly to Adrian Del Castillo.
