Gainesville Super Regionals

The eighth overall seed in the College World Series, the Florida Gators, managed to lose their best-of-three series to Southern Mississippi after blowing a 6-1 lead, ending their season without a trip to Omaha.

I don't have much to say, but I do want to tip my hat to UF freshman Preston Tucker, who set a school record for RBIs in a season with 86. Tucker was also named to the Freshman All-America team and earned All-SEC honors.

Favorite Tucker moment this season? Hands down, this one.

Until next season, Gator baseball fans. One last note, I do like what Kevin O'Sullivan is doing with the program, especially in building up a deep pitching staff, which only figures to get better with the addition of Patrick Schuster, who memorably threw four consecutive no-hitters earlier this year.
