Triple play helps Gators end skid

Junior left-hander Stephen Locke, a former standout at King High in Tampa, got out of a bases loaded jam via a triple play and threw three hitless innings for his first save as Florida beat Tennessee 7-2 Sunday in Knoxville.

Trailing by four in the fifth, the Vols got two runners aboard, and Locke was summoned. He walked his first hitter to load the bases, then he got Jeff Lockwood to line to the second baseman, who throw to the shortstop, who threw to first for a triple play. It was the second of the season of UF (21-10, 8-4 SEC) as it ended a five-game slide.

USF: The visiting Bulls (15-15, 4-7 Big East) scored three in the 11th to beat West Virginia 5-2. Ryan Lockwood's two-run double in the 11th was the big blow.

FSU: The host Seminoles (28-3, 14-1 ACC) took both games of a doubleheader against Virginia, winning each 3-2 to sweep the three-game series.
