HOOVER, AL (AP) -

JJ Schwarz was 4 for 5 with four RBIs runs to lead Florida to a 12-2, seven-inning victory over regular-season champion Mississippi State on Friday night in a Southeastern Conference Tournament elimination game.
    
The defending champion Gators (46-12) won by the 10-run mercy rule. They'll face LSU on Saturday, with the winner playing Texas A&M or Mississippi for the title.
    
Schwarz doubled and tripled for Florida, which also got two RBIs from Danny Reyes. Nelson Maldonado and Deacon Liput each scored three runs.
    
Alex Faedo (12-1) went the distance on the mound for the Gators, allowing seven hits.
    
Mississippi State (41-16) was led by Nick Lowe, who had two hits and drove in a run.
    
Florida had two four-run innings and ended it with a run in the seventh.
