Gator Baseball Has Won Eight Straight

There is some excellent news from the diamond tonight, as the Gators beat #1 FSU 16-7 in Jacksonville.  This win gives the Gators eight straight victories, a streak that includes sweeping two road series against conference teams (Auburn and Georgia).

By the way, Matt LaPorta is a monster.  He hit two homers tonight against the 'Noles, completing a stretch in which he has hit 10 longballs in the last seven games.  He has driven in 35 runs on the season with 15 homeruns, while batting .433.  I would go out on a limb and say he is our MVP thus far.

Very positive things happening with this squad after a less-than-impressive start for Coach Mac and the gang.

There will be more baseball coverage here on Swamp Ball, as basketball has come to an end and Spring practice will be finishing up in the next couple of weeks.  Stay tuned for that, as hopefully you're reading about a winning club.

Go Gators!
