The win helped the Gators improved to a 3-0 record at the SEC Tournament for the first time in 21 years.
In the victory, starting pitcher Franco Aleman pitched a career-high seven shutout innings while six Gators collected multiple hits.
“I thought it was a really well-pitched game on both sides,” Florida coach KEVIN O’SULLIVAN said. “Their starter was really, really good. I think it was a scoreless game through five.
“Nathan [Hickey] came up with a big home run, but I think the story for us today was Franco Aleman and the start that he gave us. I felt like he pitched really good last weekend at Arkansas, and he certainly built off that today.”
