The Gators baseball team took the field at Florida State on Tuesday night with five losses in its last seven games.

After being No. 1 all season, the Gators found themselves facing the new No. 1 team, FSU.

You know that didn’t sit well with the Gators. But like their first two meetings with the Seminoles this season, the Gators got the job done on the field in a 6-3 win.

The victory gave UF a sweep of the season series over the Noles for the first time since 1958.

Here are some fresh links from the game and other Gators sports for your perusal this morning:
