Baseball Gallery: Gators vs. Brown

Nobody covers the Florida baseball team closer than Gator Country. This photo gallery of more than 200 images from the Gators’ weekend series against the Brown University Bears puts you on the field for the action as UF won the final two games to improve its record to 10-3.

Freshman Riley Cooper recorded his first collegiate hit during Sunday’s 13-2 win on a pinch-hit RBI double. The Gators jumped out to a 9-0 lead after two innings, providing freshman pitcher Tommy Toledo with plenty of run support to improve to 2-0.

Florida won Saturday’s nightcap 8-7 when Avery Barnes delivered a pinch-hit single to drive in Bryson Barber with the bases loaded in the bottom of the ninth inning. The Gators trailed 3-0 in the fourth and 7-2 in the sixth before tying the score with a three-run seventh. Sophomore Clint Franklin (2-0) threw a career-high four innings without allowing a run to earn the victory.

Brown, the defending Ivy League champions, won Saturday’s opener 11-2 on the strength of 12 hits and four costly UF errors.
