Armstrong, Scott the heroes as Gators top Tennessee

Sunday’s series finale between No. 12 Florida and No. 6 Tennessee had a “here we go again” type of vibe to it for the first six innings.

The Gators built an early lead, only to watch it eviscerate due to poor pitching and horrendous defense in the middle innings. Just like they did in their first five SEC road games, all losses.

This time, though, the Gators fought back and came out on top. Kris Armstrong provided the punch at the plate with a pinch-hit three-run home run, and Christian Scott turned in a phenomenal performance on the mound, as the Gators escaped Knoxville with a 7-6 win.
