2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament: Florida Levels Georgia Tech, 15-3, to Advance to Super Regionals

Wow might be the best summary of Florida's game against Georgia Tech on Sunday night, a 15-3 annihilation that featured a four-run first inning, a three-run second and a seven-run fifth inning. The Gators piled up 11 hits, the Jackets issued seven walks and the Tech defense committed an error to boot. Games like that add new meaning to "never really in doubt."

Then again, this was not really anything new to Florida. The Gators were never really challenged in the Gainesville Regional, breezing by Bethune-Cookman 4-0 on Friday night behind Jonathon Crawford's no-hitter and then beating Georgia Tech 6-2 in their first meeting Saturday. That a 25-5 aggregate score, for those of you keeping track at home. Florida hasn't lost an NCAA tournament series at home since the 2009 Gainesville Super Regional.

They will face N.C. State or Vanderbilt in the Gainesville Super Regional, the Wolfpack having won Sunday to force a winner-take-all final game in the Raleigh Regional on Monday. Maybe one of those teams can end Florida's run in Gainesville -- but they'll have to do something no one has accomplished in three years.
