Gators Down Dogs, Lock Up SEC TitleAt The Ballpark
GAINESVILLE, Fla. — If there is one word you relate with Florida Gators baseball, it is “champions.”
Today, the Gators added another title belt to their growing trophy case, beating Georgia in fast fashion, 9-3, and staking claim to a tie for their second straight SEC championship in a row. This marked the third time in program history that the Gators had won back-to-back conference titles; 1980-1981, 2010-2011 and now 2017-2018.
With the win, Florida has also yet to drop a weekend series on the entire year and need just one more win, or one more Arkansas loss, to claim the SEC regular season title outright. (I’m a betting man, so I’m pretty sure that is going to happen. In fact, I’d go to Vegas and place a bet down on the Gators if I could.)
But the even scarier prospect? This Gators team is without a doubt, better than the National Champions from a year ago. But something tells me that you probably already knew that.
WHAT I SAW AT McKETHEN STADIUM
Early on it looked like a continuation of Friday night’s back and forth battle as the Bulldogs jumped out early to a 1-0 lead. But in the middle innings the Gators went gonzo on the Dogs, bombing four home runs out of their band box yard and made this one a no-doubter.
