Figueroa's gland slam lifts Gators over Canes

MIAMI -- This post is about a day late but Gator Clause would be remise if we didn't give mad props to Florida Gators shortstop Cole Figueroa, who hit a grand slam against the Miami Hurricanes on Sunday to break an eighth-inning tie.

FigsFigs (pictured), a lefty, belted the homer over the left-field wall and UF went on to beat the 'Canes 6-2. Miami has a very strong ball club this season, so a win against the 'Canes shows a lot a guts for this Florida Gators team. Florida struck out 35 times in the three-games series but still managed to come away with a win.

First-year Florida coach Kevin O'Sullivan has the Gators playing with confidence early. Expect this team to improve as the season moves forward.
