Gator Baseball Moves To Super Regional; MLB Draft Starts Today

The top seeded Gator baseball team moves on to host a Super Regional in the NCAA Baseball Tournament after whipping Georgia Tech 15-3 Sunday in Gainesville to win an NCAA Regional.

The outcome in this one was not in doubt early; Florida mounted an 8-1 lead early and sealed the win with a seven run fifth inning as the Gators now await the winner of today’s Vanderbilt-NC State matchup to see who they will play in a Super Regional.  Florida is now 45-18 on the season.

Mike Zunino hit another homer, the Gator bats were hot, and Brian Johnson had a solid start on the mound as Florida advances.

Meanwhile the Major League Baseball Draft starts today and many Gators are expected to be chosen highly in the draft led by Zunino who could be the first college player selected today.   He is projected to be either the second or third pick in the draft and fellow juniors Nolan Fontana, Brian Johnson and Austin Maddox could also get relatively early calls.
