GAINESVILLE, FL - Freshman left-hander Kirby Snead pitched four innings of scoreless relief Sunday, and third baseman John Sternagel drove in three runs to lead Florida to an 11-7 victory over LSU and a sweep of the Southeastern Conference series at McKethan Stadium.

The Tigers are 20-8-1 overall and 3-5-1 in the SEC. Florida improved to 19-9 overall and 6-3 in conference play. LSU plays host to McNeese State at 6:30 p.m. Wednesday in Alex Box Stadium, Skip Bertman Field.

Snead (1-0) earned the win, limiting the Tigers to no runs on two hits in 4.2 innings with one walk and no strikeouts. LSU starter Zac Person (1-1) was charged with the loss as he allowed five runs on four hits in 2.2 innings with two walks and two strikeouts.

The Tigers took a 1-0 lead in the top of the first when shortstop Alex Bregman reached on a fielder's choice, stole second base and scored on catcher Kade Scivicque's single. Florida tied the game in the bottom of the first when centerfielder Harrison Bader launched a solo homer, his first dinger of the season.

LSU responded with two runs in the second as leftfielder Jake Fraley delivered a two-run double to give the Tigers a 3-1 lead. Florida narrowed the gap to 3-2 in the bottom of the second when Sternagel lifted a sacrifice fly, but the Tigers added a run in the third on designated hitter Sean McMullen's solo home run, his second dinger of the season.

The Gators scored four runs in the third to take a 6-4 lead, benefitting from four walks in the inning. The Gators took advantage of three more walks in the fifth to increase the lead to 10-4. Sternagel added an RBI single in the eighth to give the Gators an 11-4 advantage.
