OMAHA, NEBRASKA – Florida turned Wednesday’s College World Series game against Miami into home run derby.
What? At TD Ameritrade Park, where homers the past two Junes have been as scarce as recent Miami wins against its intrastate rival.
The Gators definitely had a blast in becoming the first team to homer four times in a game at the stadium since it opened in 2011.
The show of power carried Florida to a 10-2 win before 24,033 in the Bracket One elimination game that ended Miami’s season at 50-17.
“They outhit us, outpitched us and outplayed us in every area,” said Miami coach Jim Morris, whose team was beaten 15-3 by the Gators in the first round. “I said before the tournament that this was one of the best Florida clubs we’ve played since I’ve been at Miami.”
“They can swing the bat, they hit the ball hard tonight and they earned every run that they got. They played very well.”
