Brown cools Gators

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- Zack Brown extended his streak of shutout innings pitched to 15.1 with seven strong frames and three relievers combined to pitch the final two innings, pacing Kentucky to a 3-0 win against No. 5 Florida in front of 3,516 on Friday night at McKethan Stadium.

Kentucky (24-16, 9-9 Southeastern Conference) rode the strong pitching effort from Brown, who worked 7.1 shutout frames last week in a win against Tennessee before blanking the red-hot Gators, who entered the series leading the SEC in runs scored. It marked the first time in a 44-game span that the Gators were shutout and marked the first UK win in a series opener in Gainesville since 2007.

Brown (4-4) worked seven innings, allowing only five hits -- four singles -- walking two and striking out six. Brown, who worked his sixth quality start of the year, now has a 2.81 ERA in 67.1 innings, allowing only 59 hits and striking out 53.

Zach Strecker took over to start the eighth, working around a two-out walk and getting two outs in the ninth. Spencer Jack attempted to get the final out but a full-count walk brought in Logan Salow. Salow got a strikeout of pinch-hitter Taylor Lane to pick up his second save of the year and the third of his career.
