Fall Report: South FloridaFall Report
LAKELAND, Fla. — Over a pair of six-inning scrimmages last Sunday at the Detroit Tigers’ spring training complex, South Florida stood toe-to-toe with perennial superpower Florida. The Gators won the first scrimmage 5-3 on the strength of a five-run fourth inning, but the Bulls took the second game 3-1, showing they have enough quality arms to match up with one of the nation’s deepest staffs. Few teams in the country ever match the Gators for pure talent, but the Bulls aren’t too far behind. Ten Florida pitchers hit 92 or better — but six USF pitchers did too.
