GAINESVILLE - Led by home runs from Brant Peacher and Wesley Chapel native Danny Wardell, Florida State defeated No. 4 Florida 9-4 in front of 5,483 - the fourth-largest crowd at McKethan Stadium.
It was the second consecutive loss for Gators (31-13), who have lost three of their last four, including two last weekend against Tennessee. The victory could have important NCAA seeding implications for the No. 15 Seminoles (38-14).
With a 3-0 count, Peacher hit a two-run homer to give FSU a 4-2, third-inning lead. FSU led 5-3, when Wardell hit a 360-yard home run, his seventh of the season and fourth in the past six games.
The Seminoles ended with a three-run ninth inning.
