Florida Gators Advance To Super Regionals To Face Tennessee

GAINESVILLE, Fla. – No. 5-seed Florida topped Boise State 5-0 on Sunday afternoon to advance to the 12th Super Regional in program history.


The Gators move to 44-19 in regional play, including 29 shutouts in 44 games since 2006.

For the second time in the regional, the Gators (47-15) jumped out in front the Broncos (36-16), 2-0, in the first inning with a pair of runs. In the previous game Saturday, UF scored six runs in the top of the first inning of Saturday's against Boise State.

Florida extended its lead to 3-0 in the third. Amanda Lorenz led off the inning with a double in the left-center field gap and moved around to third when Kendyl Lindaman followed up with a single down the left field line. Lily Mann entered the game to pinch-run for Lindaman and worked her way into scoring position with a stolen base.

With one out on the board, Jordan Roberts notched her third SAC fly of year when she drove in Mann on a deep fly to left field.

The first home run of the regional for the Gators came in the bottom of the fourth from junior Jaimie Hoover. Hoover sent the 1-0 pitch offered from Broncos starter Kelsey Broadus (15-7) off the roof of the UF bullpen in left field to run the lead out to 4-0.

Freshman Cheyenne Lindsey picked up her third-consecutive base hit as a pinch-hitter in the fifth to score Reynoso and give the Gators a 5-0 lead.

The Gators head to their 12th Super Regional in program history with a 19-7 record in NCAA Super Regional play. Floria will host Tennessee next weekend at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium.
