GAINESVILLE (CBSMiami) — The No. 17 Miami Hurricanes are heading to the swamp in Gainesville for a weekend series against the 2nd-ranked Gators.
Junior righthander Jesse Lepore (1-0) will take the mound for the Canes versus Florida’s Alex Faedo (0-0) in the opening game. Lepore tossed six shutout innings in the first weekend start of his career, allowing just two hits and striking out seven.
The Gators won twice in the 3-game series last year.
First pitch at Alfred A. McKethan Stadium is slated for 6:30 p.m.
