TOP HEADLINES

FLORIDA TOPPLES FSU AGAIN

Florida completed a sweep of Florida State with their 6-3 victory on Tuesday. JJ Schwarz hit a homer and drove in two in the victory, as he stood out with a 2-4 day at the plate. Austin Langworthy also drove in a pair of runs and scorched a double in the top of the sixth inning. Wil Dalton and Blake Reese were responsible for the other two runs driven in the contest. The Gators improved to 29-6 with the win.

GEORGIA COLLECTS BIG WIN OVER CLEMSON

UGA toppled Clemson on the road on Tuesday, giving them one of the biggest wins of the season. The Dawgs put up a five-spot in the third inning that helped them overcome a 3-0 deficit at the time. The biggest blow of the inning came off the bat of Michael Curry, who hit a three-run homer to give them the lead. UGA added a late run in the eighth inning on a SAC groundout by Mason Meadows.

TEXAS A&M GETS OFF TO FAST START

The Aggies were unfazed by their rivals from Austin, as they dumped the Texas Longhorns 6-5 on Tuesday. Cole Bedford, Will Frizzell and Hunter Coleman each picked up two RBI in the contest, as the Aggies won despite not registering a single XBH. They put up an early four-spot in the first inning, and despite allowing three runs in the fifth, they blooped two more runs in the sixth. They held off UT, who scored a run in the seventh and eighth innings of the game, and eventually shut the door on their chances.

The Aggies then added a 12-6 win over Alabama on Thursday to get their weekend conference series off to a rousing start. The Aggies faced a 6-4 deficit in this game but climbed back with one run in the sixth, two in the seventh and then five in the eighth. Logan Foster and the aforementioned Bedford each slugged a home run in the win.

SOUTH CAROLINA UPENDS ARKANSAS IN SERIES OPENER

The Gamecocks got their series against the touted Razorbacks off to a good start. They won 3-2 on Thursday night. The big blow came from Carlos Cortes’ bat, as Cortes belted a two-run homer in the fifth to give them the lead. They wouldn’t relinquish it going away, as SC tagged Arkansas with their 10th loss of the season. This would be a huge series win for the Gamecocks, who now stand at 20-14 on the season, if they were able to pull it off. We’ll see how this weekend plays out for them.
