The No. 1 national seed Florida Gators had quite the start to the 2012 NCAA Baseball Tournament with sophomore Jonathon Crawford throwing a no-hitter in the 4-0 victory over the No. 4 Bethune-Cookman Wildcats. That puts the Gators one victory away from playing in the title portion for this section of the bracket.
The Gators will attempt to do that with staff ace Hudson Randall on Saturday night. Randall (7-2, 2.91 ERA) goes up against Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets ace Buck Farmer (8-3, 3.43 ERA) in what should be one of the top pitching duels on Saturday.
Other players of interest in this game are Florida catcher Mike Zunino and former Colorado Rockies draftees OF Preston Tucker (2011, Florida) and OF Brandon Thomas (2009, Tech). Thomas drove in three on a home run in the Yellow Jackets' 8-4 victory over College of Charleston.
Game Date & Time: Saturday, June 2, 5:00 p.m. MT
Location: McKethan Stadium at Perry Field, Gainesville, Fla.
