Florida pitcher Hudson Randall leads Gators to 7-1 win over NC State in NCAA Super Regional


With two rain delays that totaled 2:51 in a game that eventually lasted nearly six hours, the Florida baseball players stayed loosed by hanging out in the clubhouse, listening to music and watching other NCAA Tournament games.

The Gators jumped out to an early 4-0 lead in the third inning, then shut NC State down for most of the game on its way to a 7-1 win Saturday afternoon in the NCAA Gainesville Super Regional at McKethan Stadium.

Florida junior pitcher Hudson Randall (9-2) pitched seven solid innings, allowing six hits, no walks, four strikeouts no runs.

“I thought the storyline today was Hudson Randall,’ NC State coach Elliott Avent said. “Hudson Randall was as advertised today.’’
Randall earned his fifth NCAA Tournament victory to become Florida’s all-time leader. He also holds the program bests in NCAA innings pitched (57.2), strikeouts (49) and games started (9).
