In Gainesville, Fla., Kameron Brunty had a

sixth as the Golden Eagles won the opener of the Gainesville
Regional with a 9-7 victory over Florida in front of 3,570 fans
at McKethan Stadium.
Corey Stevens knocked in three for Southern Miss
(39-24). James Ewing went 3 for 3 with two runs and two RBI for
the Golden Eagles. Bo Davis and Taylor Walker both had two hits

one in the ninth and left the tying runs on base. Jonathan
Pigott (right) went 2 for 4 with three runs for Florida.
The Gators scored four in the third to take a 4-2
lead before the Golden Eagles got three in the top of the fifth
for a 5-4 advantage. Florida plated two in the bottom of the
frame for a 6-5 lead before the four-run eruption by Southern
Miss in the sixth gave the visitors a 9-7 edge.

innings with one hit and two strikeouts to notch his first win.
