Florida defeats Marshall 9-2 on opening night at McKethan Stadium.

The Gators were led by a solid six innings on the mound by junior RHP Tommy Mace, who struck out six but also allowed eight hits.

Though, a three-run homer in the bottom of the seventh from 1B Kris Armstrong sealed a strong night at the plate for Florida, which included a solo shot from SS Josh Rivera in the previous inning and a two-run performance from freshman DH Nathan Hickey.

Florida will face Marshall for the second of a three-game series today at 4 P.M. More info can be found here:
