Florida head coach Tim Walton picked up his 1,000 career win — becoming the second fastest in Division I history to reach that milestone — Sunday in Baton Rouge as the Gators prevailed 2-1 over LSU.

The Gators suffered a series-opening, run-rule loss Friday but rebounded with back-to-back victories on Saturday and Sunday to take the series.

The Gators improve to 38-13 overall, 14-3 on the road, and 13-11 in conference play — fifth in the SEC. LSU, on the other hand, drops to 32-19 overall and 11-10 in conference action — ninth in the SEC.
