Florida softball blanked by Georgia; drop Game 1 of Super Regional: Bulldogs senior pitcher Chelsea Wilkinson became the second pitcher this season to shut out Florida. A No. 1 seed has never had to win the final two games of a Super Regional, but that is what the Gators will have to do in order to keep their chance at a three-peat alive. And while that situation is an unusual one for a one-seed to be in, 14 teams have advanced out of Super Regionals (which started in 2005) by winning their final two games. Game two is today at 5:00 p.m. If Florida wins, the decisive third game would be played at 8:00 p.m. (Graham Hays, ESPNWPat Dooley, Gainesville SunWill Pantages, Florida GatorsChris Harry, Florida Gators)
