Final: Florida 15, FGCU 0

After scoring 49 runs over the weekend it was fair to ask if the Gators baseball offense still had anything left in the tank.

Florida (10-4) proved they did with a dominating performance against Florida Gulf Coast on Tuesday. The Gators pounded out fifteen runs on fourteen hits while also shutting out a formidable offense.

Game trends:

Florida SS Brady McConnell extended his team high hitting streak to ten with a solo homer in the first inning. The Gators extended the lead to two when C Brady Smith hit a solo shot over the wall in left-center.

The Gators put up a ten spot in the fifth inning highlighted by a bases clearing double by Nelson Maldonado.

Florida added a run in the sixth and a two run homer in the seventh by Austin Langworthy.

The Gators started Nick Blasucci who threw two innings, allowing one hit and two walks while striking out three batters. Christian Scott, Justin Alintoff, and Kirby McMullen combined to pitch seven innings while allowing only three hits and allowing one walk.

Fast stats:

  • Brady McConnell finished 2-4 with 3 RBI and 3 runs scored
  • Kendrick Calilao went 2-3 with 2 RBI and now has a team leading 18 on the season.
  • Freshman Jud Fabian hit 2-3 with an RBI and 2 runs scored.

What’s next:

The two teams will face each other on Wednesday with the first pitch set for 6:05 PM from McKethan Stadium.

W: Christian Scott (2-1)

L: Nikolas Bitner (1-1)
