UF Clinches Miami Series



  GAINESVILLE - A season-high crowd of more than 4,000 watched Florida defeat Miami 7-5 to clinch the series for the third consecutive season.

  Sophomore reliever Patrick Keating earned his first career victory for UF and senior David Hurst picked up his first save - including 1.2 scoreless innings.

  The Gators (4-2) have now won four consecutive games.

  "I am extremely pleased with our bullpen's performance today,'' Florida coach Pat McMahon said. "Guys are beginning to understand their role on the mound, and that is important so that we can defend well behind them. Our bullpen is something that we take a lot of pride in with their work ethic to keep us at the level of play we need to be at throughout the season. . . Miami is a terrific team and they give us a lot of competition every time we play them. One of our goals is to not
to look at yesterday or tomorrow. We just take on today, so this was a great game for our team's psyche.''

  The Gators will close out the series Sunday at 1 p.m. Billy Bullock, a freshman right-hander from Valrico (1-0) is expected to start.
