Gator Baseball Sends Rebels Packing from SEC Tournament
Jonathan Pigott hit two home runs and had four RBI to help Florida eliminate Mississippi from the Southeastern Conference tournament with a 12-2 eight-inning victory on Thursday.
Preston Tucker also hit a home run for the Gators (39-19), who will play the Arkansas Razorbacks - who beat the Gators 8-5 on Wednesday - in another elimination game on Friday.
Tucker had three hits and three RBI. Pigott had only two homers this season coming into the game, which was called after eight innings due to the 10-run mercy rule.
The Rebels (40-17) went 0-2 in the SEC tournament after winning a share of their first regular-season league title since 1977.
Kyle Henson and David Phillips each drove in a run for Ole Miss. Anthony DeSclafani (6-3) and Patrick Keating combined to pitch a seven-hitter and hold the Rebels scoreless over the last seven innings.
