GAINESVILLE, Fla. -
END OF THE SEVENTH:
Last update of the afternoon before the complete recap after the game. UF scored two on a Texas-leaguer to center with two down to make it 6-0 Gators. All 6 UF runs have come with two outs today.
Check back later for a complete recap.
END OF THE SIXTH:
Still 4-0 Florida. Evan Crawford relieved Luckie two batters into the fifth. Also, Brian Fletcher just entered in left and Ben Jones moved from left to right.AU is sending Jones, Jenkins and Hall to the plate in the top of the seventh against new UF pitcher Clint Franklin.
MIDDLE OF THE FIFTH:
Florida plays the tune to 'If you're happy and you know it' every time its scores. Well, we heard it three times in the bottom of the fourth as UF took a 4-0 lead on two RBI hits and a fielding error by Auburn.
MIDDLE OF THE FOURTH:
Not much has changed in the last one-and-a-half innings as it is still 1-0 UF with the Gators coming to bat. Cory Luckie has retired six straight after allowing a leadoff single in the second.
END OF THE SECOND:
Florida leads 1-0 after a Josh Adams RBI single in the first. Hunter Morris doubled in the first, giving him an extra-base hit in 10 of 19 games this season.

We are minutes away from first pitch. Today's game is being aired by Sun Sports. Just played the National Anthem and there must have been 50 kids on the field with each of the nine Gator starters. Pretty funny to see the mad-dash both before and after the anthem was played to get on and off the field. We are ready to go.
It is a warm and sunny morning here at McKethan Stadium. Current temperature is 74 and it is supposed to get to 80 by 3pm ET.
Scoring change from yesterday's game. Cole Figueroa's first-inning base hit was changed to an error on Justin Hargett. The error changes the resulting numbers on Scott Shuman's line. Instead of 8 ER, he is charged with 4 ER, dropping his ERA from what would have been 6.00 to 4.29. Thanks to UF SID John Hines for his dilligence in looking at the scoring/ruling.
Here is today's lineup:
Morris...1B (is 5-for-8 [.625] against UF)
Patterson...DH (first time hitting cleanup)
Luckie...P (in his last 3 APP - 14.0 IP, 10 H, 1 R, 0 ER, 0 BB, 9 K)
