HOOVER, AL - Zach Cone drove in two runs and Michael Palazzone allowed only one unearned run in four innings of relief to help Georgia keep its season going with a 4-3 win over Florida Saturday in the Southeastern Conference tournament.
The Bulldogs (31-29) became eligible for an NCAA regional with the win, but have to beat the Gators (43-16) again to advance to the SEC championship game.
Cone had an RBI triple in the first inning and singled home a run in the third. Palazzone (10-4), who started and threw 98 pitches against Vanderbilt on Wednesday, allowed three hits.
Tyler Maloof polished off a scoreless ninth with a double play grounder for his second straight save.
Florida starter Brian Johnson was knocked out of the game with a concussion in the first inning. Johnson was struck in the back of the head while crouching on the mound by a low throw to second by catcher Mike Zunino.
