GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) — Nolan Fontana, Josh Adams and Matt den Dekker homered, lifting Florida to a 10-2 victory over Oregon State in the Gainesville Regional.
The Gators jumped in front Saturday night with Fontana's leadoff home run, pulled away with a seven-run third inning and cruised to their 30th win in 33 home games this season.
Florida (44-15), the No. 3 seed nationally, remained in the winners' bracket as well as the driver's seat for a spot in the NCAA super regionals.
Oregon State (32-23), which lost for just the sixth time in 17 games, will play Florida Atlantic in an elimination game Sunday. The winner of that one will have to beat the Gators twice to advance to the next round.
