Farmer, Weidenhammer and Long also scored in the Gator second. Baker scored four unearned runs in the fourth inning in rolling to the win over the Chiefs.

Choctaw scored twice in the top of the first inning to take a brief lead against the Gators.

Baker responded with four runs in the home half of the inning taking a lead the Gators wouldn't relinquish.

Baker scored four runs in the second and third innings and five runs in the fourth as the Gators coasted to the win and secured a spot in the championship game.

"The thing about the summer is we are not necessarily playing against the other team," Johnson said. "We are playing against ourselves and trying to make ourselves better.

"We are playing at bats, innings, pitch to pitch and just trying to make ourselves better. In the game of baseball, giveaways are strikeouts and pop-ups. When we don't strike out and we hit the ball on the ground, we have a great chance (of winning)."
