    No. 3 Gators Head Out West
    Herb BrooksUF
    This week's competition intensifies as three of the Gators opponents, UCLA, Washington and Oregon, are ranked inside the top 25 of both national polls and were all 2018 Women's College World Series participants.

    GAINESVILLE, Fla. – No. xx Florida heads back to the west coast for the Judi Garman Classic hosted by Cal State Fullerton at Anderson Family Field presented by USA Softball Feb. 28-March 1. UF is set to face one of the toughest stretches of its schedule with games against No. xx UCLA, No. xx Washington and No. xx Oregon along with New Mexico and Cal State – Northridge.

    The Gators (18-0) enter the week after a successful weekend in the Bubly Invitational held at Katie Seashole Pressly Stadium. UF defeated Illinois State, Syracuse and Florida A&M twice each over the weekend at home.
    Lorenz's Leadoff Long Ball
    Amanda Lorenz has belted six home runs through the first 18 games of the season and currently leads the Gators in the category. Four of the Moorpark, Calif. native's six home runs have come at the very beginning of the game as the leadoff batter.

    Freshman pitcher and 2018 Gatorade California Player of the Year Megan Faraimo fanned nine batters in her second collegiate no-hitter against Colorado State. Faraimo fell just short of a perfect game on account of two team errors and a hit player.

    Faraimo said that the Bruins’ routine of keeping things simple is essential to having fun and continuing their winning streak in Fullerton.

    “I think for any opponent, we just have to focus on our side of the ballgame and focus on what we’re doing,” Faraimo said. “It would be huge to come out on top against Florida, but I think if we stay focused on what we’re doing, we’ll be okay.”

    Wonderful as another great pitcher to go with Garcia. Would think that we'll be seeing Garcia in tonight's game. She recently stuck out 15 Sooners in shutting out OU. This will be a major test compared to the teams we've been playing.

    Go Gators!!

    I hate that FloSoftball’s monthly subscription is 30 dollars. And I’m debating on if I should get it for these games.

    I did it last year. It's a lot of money for a month, but it works out to $5 per game. There's a lot of other content you can access. Most important thing is to remember to cancel before the month is over.

    Now I see monthly plans from $12.49/mo. I originally passed over that important word "from". I was thinking not a bad deal for a month. I wish I knew the outcome of these big games as it would be an easier decision of video over audio only. I remember when we didn't have radio for the western tournaments so it is nice having live coverage.

    They have a game plan against Barnhill and so far it’s working.

    Kelly is just not having her best game. Should Tim pull her and give her another chance Friday against UCLA?

    KB is being hit hard, a couple to deep CF that Voss could have made plays on. Maybe if she was a few inches taller. The lighting in the stadium isn't the best based on the FloSports stream. UCLA now leads 2-0, Matthews misplays a ball at first

    Was that an actual triple or error?

    The defense is not helping at all tonight.
