Auburn, Ala. -- Despite getting only one hit, the fourth-ranked Florida Gators earned a series win with a 2-0 victory over the Auburn softball team Sunday afternoon at Jane B. Moore Field.
Auburn's record dropped to 18-7 overall, 1-2 in the Southeastern Conference. Florida improved to 25-2 overall and 2-1 in the SEC. The Tigers return to action Tuesday with a 2 p.m. CT game at Tennessee State.
"I thought Lexi (Davis) did a really good job today," Auburn head coach Tina Deese said. "To only give up one hit to this lineup is a positive step forward for her. Even after she gave up the home run she bounced back and got the next three hitters. Offensively, we had some chances but just couldn't get that hit when we needed it. We're going to learn from this and get ready for the next one."
Lexi Davis took the loss to fall to 5-3 in a complete-game effort. Davis allowed two runs, both earned, on one hit with four walks, four strikeouts and two hit batters.
Hannah Rogers improved to 13-2 with a complete-game win. Rogers scattered three hits, walked three and struck out two.
