Following a pair of home runs from right fielder Preston Tucker and catcher Mike Zunino, the Florida Gators upended Georgia Tech, 6-2 on Saturday, notching their second win of the weekend set. The Gators will face either the Yellow Jackets or Charleston tomorrow at 6 p.m. in the Gainesville Regional title game, a double-elimination format.
Florida did much of its work in the top of the fourth inning on Saturday night following a solo homer from Zunino, along with an RBI single from left fielder Justin Shafer and a sacrifice fly from first baseman Vickash Ramjit, giving it a 4-1 lead midway through the contest.
Gators starter Hudson Randall also kept them in the game. Though surrendering eight hits, he gave up just one walk and on earned run over nearly six innings before reliever Steven Rodriguez came in to finish the game.
