The Florida Gators swept through the Gainesville Regional with a perfect 3-0 record, beating Bethune Cookman Friday, Connecticut on Saturday and Georgia Tech on Sunday to advance to the Super Regionals.
The trio of wins pushed Florida’s all-time record in NCAA Regional play to 72-42 and advanced the Gators to its eighth Super Regional appearance (2004, 2005, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2015, 2016) — the sixth under Kevin O’Sullivan.
Sophomore Alex Faedo took the mound on Sunday, earning the win and improving his Regional record to 2-0 (Faedo earned a win over FAU in 2015). Faedo was on his game Sunday, throwing eight innings of scoreless baseball with 10 strikeouts. The sophomore started 22-of-25 batters with a strike, winning his 13th game of the season.
Gator Country’s photographer David Bowie was at McKethan Stadium to take in the action and we now bring to you a photo gallery from Florida’s 50th win of the season.
