Tennessee blanks Florida in SEC Tournament semifinal behind Camden Sewell
Camden Sewell turned in a career-best performance when it mattered most.
The Tennessee righthander tossed six shutout innings of two-hit ball with no walks and six strikeouts as Tennessee knocked off Florida 4-0 in the semifinals of the SEC Tournament. The fourth inning, when the Gators got a runner to third base, was the only time he was in any danger of allowing a run at all. Sewell matched a career high with six innings, and established a new career high in strikeouts.
The Vols offense, meanwhile, got a run in the third, two in the fourth, and another in the seventh. Tennessee had RBIs from Drew Gilbert, Evan Russell and Jordan Beck. Leadoff hitter Liam Spence had two hits, two walks and two runs scored in the victory.
Florida briefly threatened with two runners on in the ninth inning, but the Vols escaped thanks to a double play on a ground ball to third base.
Tennessee will meet the winner of Arkansas-Ole Miss on Sunday at 3 p.m. ET on ESPN2.
What an outing for junior right hander Camden Sewell. He’ll make way for Redmond Walsh with a runner on first and no outs here in the seventh.
