Florida tops South Carolina 7-2 in SEC tourney

Posted: Updated:

HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Casey Turgeon had three hits and drove in a pair of runs to lead top-seeded Florida to a 7-2 win over South Carolina Thursday in an elimination game of the Southeastern Conference tournament.

The Gators (38-20), whose offense was stymied by Kentucky in an opening-round loss, rallied from a 2-0 deficit. They scored three unearned runs in the third, including a two-run single by Taylor Gushue, and two in the fourth.

Reliever Bobby Poyner (5-3) pitched five scoreless innings and allowed just two hits. Josh Tobias led off the sixth with a homer for the Gators.

The Gamecocks (42-16) lost two straight in the tournament and were outscored 19-2.

Tanner English went 2 for 4 with a double and RBI for South Carolina. Starter Jack Wynkoop (7-5) left with two outs in the third after the three unearned runs.

Florida will play Mississippi or Kentucky in another elimination game Friday.
