Shore goes the distance in Florida victory

  Shore had six strikeouts in his second complete game in his past four starts.

STARKVILLE, Miss. -- Sophomore righthander Logan Shore tossed his first career complete game on the road and Josh Tobias drove in a career-high four runs as No. 6 Florida (29-10, 10-6 SEC) earned a 6-3 victory against Mississippi State (22-17, 6-10 SEC) on Friday night at Dudy Noble Field.

Shore (6-2) gave up six hits and three runs with six strikeouts and zero walks in his second complete game in the past four starts. The righthander was supported by an offense led by Tobias (2-for-4), who roped a three-run triple in the first inning and added an RBI double in the fifth, as well as a 3-for-4 outing by Dalton Guthrie and a 2-for-3 effort by Richie Martin.

The Gators jumped out to 4-0 lead against Lucas Laster (4-3) in the first inning on a three-run triple by Tobias and an RBI grounder by JJ Schwarz. Guthrie opened the game with a base hit into left field and took third on Harrison Bader’s team-leading 12th double.

After a walk to Peter Alonso filled the bags, Tobias emptied them with his team-best fifth triple into right center. Schwarz followed with a grounder that brought home Tobias, giving him an SEC-best 47 RBI.

Mississippi State mounted a two-out rally in the fourth to narrow the gap to 4-3. Jake Vickerson led off with a single and was safe at second base on a fielder’s choice by Jacob Robson with one down.

After Shore caught Reid Humphreys looking on strikes for two down, Wes Rea put the hosts on the board with an RBI single into left field. A passed ball moved Robson and Rea into scoring position and John Holland (2-for-3) doubled into the right field gap to score both of his teammates but was gunned down on a relay throw from right fielder Ryan Larson to shortstop Richie Martin to Tobias.

Florida answered with a pair of runs in the fifth on an RBI grounder by Alonso and a two-out double by Tobias for a 6-3 advantage. Guthrie started the frame with his third single of the night, Martin was hit by a pitch and a fielder’s choice by Bader left the Gators with runners on the corners. Alonso collected his second RBI of the night with a grounder and Tobias followed with a two-bagger into left center to complete the scoring.
