Stock down: Florida

Kevin O’Sullivan’s squad entered the weekend as a projected 3-seed in the Tallahassee Regional (FSU hosting) and D1Baseball’s Last Four In. That was before the Gators dropped another SEC series.

While Jac Caglianone stayed hot at the plate, Vanderbilt managed to get the better of UF. The Commodores took Thursday’s series opener 10-5 and clinched with a 5-2 win Friday.

With Cags on the mound, the Gators got a 6-2 victory to avoid the sweep. UF hosts Stetson in midweek action before a trip to Arkansas, a team with its sights set on winning the College World Series.

Stock down: Ole Miss

Mike Bianco picked up career win No. 1,000, but that’s about all the Rebels are celebrating from the Georgia series.

Ole Miss entered the weekend as a “First Four Out” team according to both Baseball America and D1Baseball. Falling 17-6 in an 8-inning run rule game on Friday and then falling 7-2 in the first game of Saturday’s doubleheader hurt the overall and conference records.

The Rebels get a midweek tune of North Alabama before hosting the Alabama Crimson Tide for a weekend series in Oxford.

Stock up: LSU

The defending national champions went 3-12 in the first half of conference play. With that record, it was fair to wonder if LSU would make the cut for the SEC Tournament. Only the top 12 teams from the conference standings get to play in Hoover.

Entering the weekend series, LSU was a “First Four Out” team according to D1Baseball, while Baseball America did not mention the Tigers in its projected field of 64.

It took 6 tries, but LSU finally has an SEC series win. The Bayou Bengals took 2-of-3 from the Missouri Tigers, winning 12-1 for a 7-inning run-rule victory on Friday. LSU bounced back from an 8-7 Saturday loss with a 6-2 win in Sunday’s rubber game.

LSU will look to keep the momentum going against Nicholls in midweek action and a struggling Auburn squad next weekend.
