No. 17 Miami came out on the wrong end of a pitcher’s duel Friday night at Alfred McKethan Stadium, falling to No. 2 Florida 1-0 in the rivalry series opener.

The Hurricanes (2-2) had the tying run on second with two outs in the ninth, but Gators reliever Frank Rubio struck out Romy Gonzalez with two runners aboard to close out the game.

Facing a talented Gators lineup, junior Jesse Lepore delivered an impressive outing in the second weekend start of his career.

The righthander tossed six strong innings, allowing just one run on six hits and two walks. He struck out six before departing after 94 pitches.

Unfortunately for the Hurricanes offense, Gators righthander Alex Faedo was up to the task.

Faedo (1-0) allowed just two hits and one walk in a 119-pitch otuing. He struck out eight and departed with two outs in the ninth in front of 5,385 fans.

"It was a great pitching duel," head coach Jim Morris said. "Both guys threw well, but Faedo threw better. We had a chance in the ninth to tie it up or win it, but Faedo pitched outstanding."

Go Canes! Beat the Dukies!

1mg Of epi

Not a basketball guy, but coach L is very good at his job.

Go Canes!

Big, big, big game against the Dukies today.

Poll rankings, ACC and NCAA tourney seeds can really change based on the result of this game.

Fire on the Watsco run boys, run

The Devils went down to Florida,
Looking for a game to steal,
They were in a bind,
Because they were way behind,
And willing to make a deal,
They said U play pretty good ball boys,
But give the Devils their due.
We'll bet an ACC title against your soul,
That says we're better than U.

Old Skool

I bow to the master

Dude

The Canes said "we're from down in Miami'"
And it might be a sin,
But we'll take your bet,
You're gonna regret,
Cause we're the best there's ever been!

We're there lots of recruits at the game?

BigWindyCane1

I went to the games. Lots of sports celebs in the house. Jamal Mashburn, Grant Hill, Ray ALLEN, Chris Bosh, A-Rod, just to name a few. Canes were jacked for Senior Day. BRUCE Brown is the real deal. Newton returned. Coach L was fired up. Great atmosphere. Great signature win for Coach L. Recruits would have been impressed by what they saw

BigWindyCane1

We are really fortunate to have such a great basketball coach and program. CMR will also build something similar in football and you know how we Canes fans love our football!

Sitkowski got the Marino quick release....that is fast

Artur Sitkowski just committed to the "U"

Dude

^^^ Wow! 4 star QB, we're putting together an elite class. On par with anyone. Storm brewing.

University of Miami Athletics Program is awesome that is all. Each sport is under the Athletic Program Umbrella. Keep up the Great Work. It is a pleasure to cheer for these teams from August 1St-June 30th each year. 11 months to support everything from Football through Baseball with everything in between. Go Canes!

Jimbo Fischer has to feel like the king of Argus in Clash of the Titans, right before Zeus began crushing him to powder. The elite recruits are falling to us like leaves from an autumn tree.

Canes win, and my son's youth/HS athletic journey came to an end yesterday...bittersweet. I can imagine what graduation's gonna feel like.

Dude

Trying to think of a good comparison for Sitkowski... Very fast release, good zip on the ball. Good enough speed to pick up first down, even if it does look a little gangly sometimes. Great prospect.

Dude

Sam Bradford. He reminds me of Sam Bradford.

Congrats Coach L and the team. I don't think the U appreciates what they got in L down in the Gables. Dude has been a miracle worker with one hand tied behind his back. Next year, he's free and clear of any restrictions in schollies. The fact this year's squad is even sniffing tourney is amazing.

Ohio_Cane

My guesses, if we get 3:

2018 IMG QB Artur Sitkowski
2017 CB Dee Delaney (Citadel grad transfer)
2017 RB Tyshon Dye (Clemson grad transfer)

First one was right. Now to see if we get the other 2 today....

thirstybuzzardcane

No news on baseball last night? I guess we lost.

nemo2002

Yeah, we lost 2-0.

No. 17 Miami dropped another close matchup in its rivalry series with No. 2 Florida Saturday night, falling to the host Gators, 2-0, in Game 2.

A night after losing 1-0, the Hurricanes (2-3) could not capitalize on their scoring opportunities in their third straight defeat.

Junior Jeb Bargfeldt twirled the first quality start of his Miami career in a losing effort. The lefthander allowed just three hits across his 89-pitch outing.

Bargfeldt (1-1) struck out three and walked three before being relieved by sophomore Andrew Cabezas in the seventh with his team facing a 2-0 deficit.

Florida righthander Brady Singer (2-0) delivered a strong effort for the hosts in front of 6,160 fans.

Singer struck out 11 across 7.2 shutout innings. He scattered five hits and three walks in the 109-pitch performance.

For the second consecutive night, the Hurricanes strung together a late rally, this time in the eighth inning. Freshman Nico Baldor drew a pinch-hit walk and junior Carl Chester followed with a single to left to put two runners aboard.

But Singer struck out Michael Burns and Nick Horvath – who switched to the mound from his starting position in center in relief of Singer – struck out senior Johnny Ruiz to extinguish the threat.

Go Canes!

Canes athletics is on a great roll.

So great to see Coach L put up indisputable Coach of the year when me and have the Canes rolling into the tournament.

Really hope Brown isn't a one and done!

Ohio_Cane

We'd be the luckiest bball program in the country if Brown decided to stay another year. I'll be shocked if he comes back. I saw recently an NBA scout said they'd take him in the 20's. 1st round picks usually don't come back.
