Pitching staff can carry Florida through postseason
Throughout a 30-game Southeastern Conference schedule, all most fans heard about the Florida Gators was the hitting.

Overlooked in the rollercoaster ride at the plate has been the job Florida’s pitching staff has done to help propel the Gators to their fourth straight year with at least 40 wins.
“I haven’t had many staffs like this,” coach Kevin O’Sullivan said. “I think they’ve been really good all year. We’ve mixed the rotation around a little bit because we’ve had to.”
