HOOVER, Ala. (AP) - Buddy Reed had three hits, and Florida beat Vanderbilt 7-3 in the rain-delayed Southeastern Conference tournament championship on Sunday night.

The Gators (44-16) scored five runs in the first three innings, which were interrupted by delays totaling 2 hours, 48 minutes. Both teams were awarded NCAA regional sites during the game that ended 6 1/2 hours after first pitch.

Harrison Bader started the game with a home run for Florida, which finished with 14 hits.

The defending national champion Commodores (42-19) are regulars in SEC title games but have gone 0-5 since last winning in 2007.

It is Florida's first title since 2011 after losing the championship game to LSU last season.
