Florida opened the series at Ole Miss Friday with a 4-1 victory as junior Stephanie Tofft (Lincoln, Calif.) and sophomore Jessica Damico (Gray Summit, Mo.) each drove in two runs, while freshman Taylore Fuller (Trenton, Fla.) was 2-for-3 at the plate for the Gators.
Florida (33-3, 8-2) made it eight straight wins over the Rebels (19-19, 1-9 SEC) with its 37th all-time victory over Ole Miss, 16th in Oxford, to open the three-game conference set.
Junior ace Hannah Rogers (Lake Wales, Fla.) led the way in the circle for the Orange and Blue with her 13th complete game of the season. Rogers fanned five, gave up one run and two hits to improve to 19-2 overall on the year. Carly Hummel (8-11) shouldered the loss for the Rebels after giving up UF’s seven hits and four earned runs while also going the distance. Hummel finished the evening with six Ks and dished out one free pass.
Following the series with Ole Miss, UF will return back to Gainesville for a five-game home stand April 3-10, as the Gators play host to UCF, Mississippi State & USF at home.
