On the heels of its 7-3 victory over No. 2 UF, the No. 24 FGCU baseball team headed to Gainesville and completed a two game sweep of the Gators with a 3-2 victory on Wednesday, March 8. With a 3-2 lead and runners on base for UF, Gage Morey made a game saving diving catch with two outs in the bottom of the ninth to secure the Eagles’ 12th win of the season, eighth in a row. “It’s been a great two days for this program,” FGCU head coach Dave Tollett said to FGCU Athletics in a press release. “To take two games against a team like Florida, it’s huge.

The Gators got on the board in the first after Blake Reese led off with a walk and came around to score following a wild pitch a few batters later to take a 1-0. The Gators lead wouldn’t last long as Eli Lovell and Spencer Levine would both reach on walks. Richie Garcia advanced the two runners into scoring position on a sacrifice bunt to set up...
