Florida freshman Lexie Delbrey tossed a complete-game gem Tuesday night in Jacksonville en route to a 7-1 victory over UNF. The right-hander struck out seven batters and yielded only one run via a solo homer in the sixth inning.
Four of the first six batters in Florida’s lineup turned in multi-hit performances, but first baseman Skylar Wallace recorded the only RBI as UNF committed seven errors en route to allowing six unearned runs.
Freshman left fielder Kendra Falby led off for the Gators and hit a single in each of the final two frames following an 0-3 start. Fifth-year second baseman Hannah Adams doubled in the top of the first before she dug out an infield single in the sixth.
Senior third baseman Charla Echols singled in the fifth and poked a leadoff double to begin the last inning. Senior center fielder Cheyenne Lindsey belted a pair of triples in her first two at-bats before the Chattanooga, Tennessee, native capped off the night with a single and a stolen base in the seventh inning.
