One catch, the Gators are a top five team.

United Kingdom starter Sean Hjelle was erratic in the first two innings, but minimized the damage to give the league's top offense a chance to get the Cats back in the game.

"I was searching a little bit too much within myself and so, those first two innings I was just trying to do too much myself", Hjelle said.

United Kingdom in the driver's seat for an SEC regular season title.

Riley Mahan went 3-5 with a single, double, and a home run, while his teammate Marcus Carson also had a big day at the plate, going 3-4 with all singles.

UK's win, coupled with LSU's road victory over Mississippi State, created a three-way tie for first in the SEC standings with two games remaining on the schedule. All with.679 winning percentage, the results of this weekend will determine seeding for the SEC tournament next week in Hoover, Alabama.

The Cats pounded out 20 hits against the Gators, tying for the most they've had in a conference game this season. Zach Logue will take the mound on Friday in game 2 where he will face Brady Singer, Florida's right-handed pitcher.
