How to Watch: Florida baseball vs Siena Saints on Sunday

Florida baseball gets set to host the Siena Saints on Sunday, March 12, in the third of a three-game weekend series at Condron Family Ballpark in Gainesville, Florida, and if you’re wondering how you can watch the action live, you’ve come to the right place.

The Gators started the season with a three-game sweep of the visiting Charleston Southern Buccaneers but split a home-and-home with the South Florida Bulls that saw both teams win the away game during the week. The Orange and Blue bounced back from the USF loss with a sweep of the visiting Cincinnati Bearcats two weekends ago but then split another home-and-home with the Jacksonville Dolphins last week.

Last weekend, Florida took two of three at home from the No. 22 Miami Hurricanes before sweeping a midweek series at home against the Florida Atlantic Owls. The Gators took the first two games of this weekend’s series coming into Sunday’s matchup.

Pitcher notes

Shohei Ohta- I mean, Jac Caglianone will pitch for Florida Sunday, and there’s really nothing this guy can’t do. He has the lowest ERA of any Florida pitcher right now and is leading the nation in home runs. He’ll shove again on Sunday, and the real test will start for him next week against Alabama.

Junior Sebastian Bentz has had a few rough outings for the Saints. One came against Jacksonville and saw three runs cross over 3 2/3 innings, and the other saw five runs through just 1 1/3 innings. Starting a guy that has a 14.40 ERA on Sunday against UF seems like waving the white flag, but what else is there for Siena to do? — David Rosenberg

Other Players to Watch

There isn’t a lot to say here this week. The facts are that Siena has just one batter hitting at exactly .300 and none over. To make things even worse, that batter, Nick Bergamotto, isn’t even an everyday player for the Saints. He has just 20 at-bats while the everyday starters are in the mid-30s.

Four players on the team have hit a single home run, so there isn’t much power to speak of, and the pitchers on the roster with an ERA of 3.00 and lower have only pitched about four innings apiece. — Rosenberg

Series History









NOTES: This is as one-sided as it gets. The most recent matchup came in 2018 and Florida outscored Siena 36-5. The mercy rule should help limit things, but this series should only end one way. — Rosenberg


GAME 3: Florida, 11-1

SERIES: Not only do I think Florida will dominate this series, but I also believe the Gators will take each game by at least 10 runs in seven innings. It’s too big of a mismatch on the field to ignore, and Florida is crushing good teams like Miami early on. Gators sweep in 21 innings, 3-0. Rosenberg
