Dent, Gators one win away from Omaha

Navigators infielder Cody Dent and the Florida Gators are tied at a game apiece with Mississippi State in the NCAA Super Regionals heading into Sunday’s 1:00 PM Game 3 matchup in Gainesville. The winner will be one of eight teams to advance to the College World Series in Omaha.

Florida routed the Bulldogs 11-1 in Game 1 on Friday, as Dent – the son of three-time All-Star Bucky Dent – singled, plated a run with a sac fly, and also walked twice and scored twice. The sophomore then went 1-for-4 with a run scored in a 4-3 walkoff loss to Mississippi State on Saturday to even the series.

Dent is hitting .300 (5-for-15) with six walks for a .524 on-base percentage in five games since Regional play began last weekend. He has started the last 12 games as Florida’s starting third baseman.
