After sweeping UAB on the road last weekend, No. 8 Florida shut out UCF 3-0 Wednesday at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium.

The Gators improve to 15-3 overall and remain undefeated at home.

Sophomore right-hander Lexie Delbrey started in the circle for Florida and dealt her second straight complete-game shutout. Delbrey allowed six hits but conceded no walks en route to picking up her third win this season.

The Gators didn’t get on the scoreboard until the fifth inning when shortstop Skylar Wallace hit a two-out, RBI triple into center field.

The next batter — senior third baseman Charla Echols — singled home Wallace to extend her RBI streak to five games.

In the bottom of the sixth, Florida scored an insurance run after freshman right fielder Kaila Pollard drove home first baseman Avery Goelz on a double into center.
