    Looks like it could be a competitive game today. Minnesota comes in undefeated with a win at LSU. Walton again throwing Gourley in the biggest game of the weekend. Interesting.

    Gators left 2 in scoring position the top of the 1st. Scoreless through 1.

    Stewart scores (from 2nd!) on a sac bunt.

    1-0 Gators top 3rd

    2 RBI single for Tofft scores Haeger and Castro. 3-0 Gators.

    Munro single and Tofft scores on the throwing error. 4-0, still top 3.

    BL loaded double from Schwarz scores 3 in the top of the 4th. Minnesota scores 2 with some small ball in the bottom.

    7-2 Gators in the 5th.

    Rogers relieves Gourley to start the 5th and quickly mows down 3 Minnesota batters. Still 7-2 in the top of the 6th.

    2-run Haegerbomb and the Gators go up 9-2 with no outs in the top of the 6th.

    Gators putting it away in the top of the 6th. A 2 run Herndon HR makes it 8 in the inning with 2 out.

    15-2 Gators.

    Man, if the bats stay hot all season and into the postseason, this could be a special team.

    During the five games played by the Gators in Vegas they scored 59 runs and allowed 6 runs.

    This is a national championship caliber team. We have the best bullpen in the country, and it's not even close. And our bats are always sick under Walton.

    Dang was asleep during the game. Sigh. Great win though. That Desert Classic is going to be awesome. Can't wait.

    My guess is Walton is wanting to learn how tough she can be so that he will know what she is capable when the games are big. Also, is proving to be a good move as she will also know she can do it.

    I agree, games right now don't count for as much as conference games will, so even losing a game now isn't really a killer. Get some real experience under her belt while you can and see how she holds up. Lots of these non conference games are just going to be blowouts and simply don't test the pitcher, so roll her out there for the tough ones so when it is Bama, UT or UGA she is ready.

    Looks like Haeger lost a no hitter yesterday with 2 outs and an 0-2 count in the 7th. Gave up a single and then the next hitter got a homer...but UF cruising through the tourney easily
