After outscoring an awful Hofstra team by 31 runs over 3 games the Seminoles will travel to Tampa and take on the Florida Gators. None of this past weekend’s games were televised so it’s tough to analyze given only box scores and recaps. The truth of the matter it’s really hard to put too much stock into what goes on in any of these games because the quality of opponent is not great. On a positive note the offense is playing well all things considered and the expected contributors are contributing.
Tonight’s game will be Florida State’s toughest opponent to date as they play one of the most talented and well coached teams in the country. I know the Seminoles went 4-1 against the Gators last year and knocked them out of the College World Series but this Florida team will be much better this year. The 2010 UF team featured 5 freshmen in the starting lineup; those players have a ton of talent and have improved.
Tonight’s matchup will feature RHP Tommy Toledo who has been about perfect in 3 relief appearances this year. RHP Scott Sitz, the normal Sunday starter, will go for the Noles. He threw 6 shutout innings in his only appearance this year.
The game is televised so come on back tonight for the live game thread.
