So far, the Florida baseball team has followed the script perfectly.
Ace Alex Faedo and closer Michael Byrne combined to shut down TCU on Sunday night as the No. 3-seeded Gators opened College World Series play with a 3-0 win over the No. 6 Horned Frogs.
Now it’s Brady Singer’s turn.
The Gators (48-18) knew their pitching would have to carry them in Omaha, Neb., as it has most of the season, and now they’ll turn to Singer (7-5, 3.29 ERA) as they take on Louisville (53-10) at 7 p.m ET Tuesday at TD Ameritrade Park.Schedule/TV channel/How to watch online

Faedo was terrific for the Gators on Sunday night, allowing 2 hits and 2 walks over 7 scoreless innings. He totaled 11 strikeouts and now has 33 strikeouts with just 1 run allowed in 20 innings this postseason.
The Gators will hope Singer can stay as sharp as he looked in the NCAA Super Regionals, when he allowed just 3 hits over six scoreless innings with 11 strikeouts in two appearances.
Meanwhile, Florida outfielder Nelson Maldonado said he expects to be available after injuring his ankle Sunday night.
