Gator Baseball Falls In First Game of NCAA Regional; Moves On To Valparaiso
GAINESVILLE- The Florida Gator baseball team were the victims of a late rally by the Austin Peay Governors in the first game of the NCAA Bloomington Regional.
The Govs took an early 1-0 lead on a line to shortstop. The resulting out left first baseman Vickash Ramjit a little shaken up when his ankle was hurt, but he would stay in for the duration of the game.
Then in the top of the sixth with two on, a left field long ball by Justin Shafer (his 5th of the season) put the Gators ahead 3-1.
Jonathon Crawford took the mound for Florida for 6.1 innings, giving up 4 hits and striking out 5. Daniel Gibson came in for the back half of the 7th inning. Ryan Harris took the mound for Florida to finish out and was credited with the loss.
In the bottom of the 8th, Harris was hit off of by Michael Davis who sent one to just over the wall in left field, and just out of the reach of Harrison Bader. The 3 run homer put Austin Peay ahead 4-3 and they would hang on to win the game by that score.
Gators now drop down into the losers brack and will face Valparaiso on Saturday at 2pm.
