COLLEGE STATION, TX (WCJB) - In the midst of a rough Saturday evening for the Florida baseball team.

It was the first run in five innings after facing a 9-0 deficit as Florida falls 15-2 at Texas A&M.
Hurston Waldrep suffers his third loss of the season after he surrenders four runs off two hits, six walks, but rang up five batters.
As the game went into the fourth inning, the Gators (37-11) were down 1-0. After the fourth inning, the game was out of reach after the Aggies (28-20) put up eight straight runs. Hunter Haas starts the rout with a two-run double down the right field line to take a 3-0 lead. Jordan Thompson follows up Trevor Werner’s sacrifice grounder with a two-run single off Blake Purnell.

It also prevents the shutout. He finishes the evening 2 for 3 at the plate with a team leading 69 runs batted in this season.
