Gator Baseball Hosts Mississippi State This Weekend

The Florida baseball team has its final SEC regular season home series starting this weekend as it hosts Mississippi State.   You can hear all the games live on Country 103-7 The Gator Friday and Saturday at 7pm and Sunday at 1pm.

On Friday the Gators will send righty Hudson Randall (5-1, 3.53 ERA) to the mound to be opposed by a possible first round draft choice in junior righty Chris Stratton (9-0, 2.19 ERA).  Lefty Brian Johnson throws Saturday for Florida with righty Karsten Whitson scheduled to go Sunday.

The Bulldogs, coached by former Gator assistant John Cohen, have played good baseball as of late to climb back to .500 in SEC play at 12-12 while the Gator stand 14-10 in league play.   Cohen will not coach Friday’s game due to an SEC suspension after he was ejected after last Sunday’s game against Alabama.

The Bulldogs have suffered a lot of injuries this year that has hurt their production in the lineup but the pitching has been excellent as the team boasts one of the top staffs in the SEC.

Florida will also hold its annual Senior Day this weekend as well.   The Gators are currently in fourth place in the SEC, trailing Kentucky and league co-leaders LSU and South Carolina.
