In the bottom of the third, senior Taylore Fuller led off what would be a nine-run inning. Following Fuller, there was a four-pitch walk followed by back-to-back singles from senior Kelsey Stewart and freshman Amanda Lorenz—scoring Florida’s first run, but it did not stop there. With the bases loaded Kirsti Merritt was hit with by a pitch bringing in the Gators second run.
Sophomore Nicole DeWitt had a huge hit bringing in three Gators to up the score to 5-0. Stewart ended Florida’s scoring in the third with back- to-back singles and Stewart said it was the first time this season she was able to connect with the ball twice in one inning.
Coach Tim Walton said if Stewart continues to play this way you are going to see the team dynamic change.
