Gator Softball Sweeps Gamecocks In Weekend Series

By on March 18th, 2012

The Florida Gator softball team took down conference rival South Carolina (12-12, 2-6 SEC) in three straight games this past weekend winning 7-3 on Sunday as the Gators (26-2, 7-1 SEC) recorded their 26th consecutive win in the Florida-South Carolina series.

Sophomore pitching ace Hannah Rogers made an appearance in each game of the series, once as a starter, once to get a save, and then picked up her 14th win on Sunday when she entered the game at the top of the fourth to relieve freshman pitcher Alyssa Bache, who gave up two hits and walked as many batters.  Rogers says whether she gets the start or comes in to save the game, she steps into that circle with the same competitive mentality.

Although the freshman pitcher didn’t get to close out the game, Florida head coach Tim Walton says he wasn’t upset with Bache’s performance, and actually wishes he would have kept her in a little longer.

Next up for the Gators is conference foe Arkansas.  Florida will face off against the Razorbacks in a weekend series beginning Friday at 8 pm in Fayetteville.
