Avery Barnes hit his first home run of the season to cut the lead to 5-4 in the bottom of the ninth. John Townsend then tied the game as Austin Pride hit a double to deep right centerfield.
The Gators record is now 25-24 and are 12-12 in the SEC.Â Florida faces North Florida in the final mid-week game for the Gators on Tuesday night.
