The Gators won their first two games this weekend against Charleston Southern with scores of 6-0 and 16-10. But today's 6-3 loss was marred by a scary incident regarding UF sophomore pitcher Tommy Toledo.
With the Gators trailing 3-0, Toledo was struck in the back of the head by a line drive off the bat of CSU's Derek Smith. The Independent Florida Alligator's Anthony Chiang said that Toledo was woozy and needed help off the field. Speaking to UF coach Kevin O'Sullivan after the game, Chiang reported that Toledo was taken to the hospital and was bleeding.
It's hard to speculate on how long a player will be out, but the emotion of dealing with such a play lasts for a while. Toledo had pitched very well, going 2-0 with a 1.98 ERA and won the clincher of last week's series at Miami.
UF moves to 11-3 and plays Army tomorrow. Army was added to the schedule to make up for losing a three game series earlier when LaSalle was snowed in Philadelphia.
