Gator Baseball goes for the Sweep against No.1 Texas A&M

After taking the first two games of their weekend series against the number one nationally ranked Texas A&M Aggies, the Florida baseball team looks to complete the sweep on Sunday at 2 p.m. at McKethan Stadium.

The Gators have had 12 hits in both of the first two games of the series, leading to 7-4 and 7-2 victories in front of a packed house each night. As the series moves into the afternoon finale, the Gators will look to continue their phenomenal weekend and regain their number one national ranking after falling to number two last week.

Top performers for the Gators this weekend have been starting pitchers Logan Shore and Alex Faedo, who have combined to toss 10 and one-third innings while allowing just one earned run. Offensively, the team has been led by Peter Alonso, who has hit two home runs to go along with his four RBIs. Jonathan India has had five hits in eight at-bats and Jeremy Vasquez has added three hits and three runs batted in.

Junior left-hander AJ Puk will take the mound for the Gators, while the Aggies starter has yet to be announced. Puk will look to regain his form after a rough outing his last start against Kentucky, in which he allowed six earned runs in just over four innings pitched.

In the SEC standings, the Gators have improved their record to 6-2 in SEC play. The team has moved within one game of South Carolina for the top spot in the SEC Eastern Division. Texas A&M stands at 4-4 in SEC play, two games behind Mississippi State for first place in the SEC Western Division.
