    In battle of 1 vs. 2, Miami Hurricanes feel ready to turn around recent baseball history against Florida
    By David Furones South Florida Sun Sentinel
    The flurry of messages began on Monday morning for Miami Hurricanes baseball coach Gino DiMare when it was first released that, in one of college baseball’s polls, UM had risen to No. 1 and the Florida Gators were No. 2.

    It meant, at least according to the D1 Baseball rankings, Miami and Florida are meeting as the top two teams in the country when they get together for their annual early-season series. All three games have already been announced as sold out, according to UM, leaving fans to go to the secondary market to get into Alex Rodriguez Park at Mark Light Field Friday night through Sunday afternoon.

    “Everybody’s very excited,” DiMare said. “It’s just my second year as a head coach, but by far it’s the most that I’ve been hit with phone calls, ‘good lucks,’ tickets — that seems to be the popular thing. It’s amazing how many people are excited about the series.”

    UM (4-0) enters trying to turn around its recent history against the Gators.

    Since sweeping Florida in the 2009 regular season, Miami has lost 30 of its last 38 meetings with UF, including all eight postseason pairings. The last time the Hurricanes won a series against the Gators was 2014, taking two of three then.

    Well, Miami’s last series victory against UF was in Coral Gables. So they have that going for them, which is nice.

    They of course have lost the last 3 series in “their house” and 5 of the last 6 against the Gators.

    Well, technically they weren't wrong. They turned around the most recent history, which was last year, where they DIDN'T get swept. So good for them for fixing that for us!
