OMAHA, NEBRASKA  (Florida Gators) –Once again, the story of the night was Florida’s starting pitcher.

Tuesday night was Brady Singer’s turn on the mound in Omaha and he did not disappoint, pitching seven solid innings with one run allowed on six hits as Florida beat Louisville 5-1.

With the win, Florida (49-18) advances in the winner’s bracket and will play again on Friday night (8 p.m. ET, ESPN) against the winner Thursday’s matchup between Louisville (53-11) and TCU.

Through its first two games, the Florida starting pitchers — Singer and Alex Faedo — have combined for 14 innings with just one run allowed while totaling 20 strikeouts.

Florida also got some offense on Tuesday courtesy of a pair of home runs.

Austin Langworthy hit a solo home run that hit off the left field foul pole in the third inning to give the Gators a 1-0 lead.

In the fourth, Deacon Liput hit a three-run homer into the right field bullpen to make it 4-0.

Singer was masterful through the first six innings, retiring 11 in a row at one point before a one-out single in the sixth inning by Jake Snider.

Two batters later, Colby Fitch singled to give the Cardinals its first runner in scoring position but Singer froze Devin Mann with a slider for a called strike three to end the threat.

Florida added to its lead in the seventh inning on Mike Rivera’s RBI double that scored Liput from first. With the double, Rivera has now reached base in 27 straight games.

Louisville finally got on the board in the seventh, putting together a two-out rally and plating a run on Colin Lyman’s RBI single.

The Cardinals’ run ended a streak of 24.2 scoreless innings by the Florida pitching staff.

Singer was replaced to start the eighth inning after nine strikeouts and just one walk through seven innings.

Nick Horvath took over and recorded two outs before handing the ball to Tyler Dyson, who recorded the final four outs to secure the victory.
