(FLORIDA GATORS) – The Florida Gators will get to defend their National Championship following a crazy Monday night under the lights at McKethan Stadium in Game 3 of the Gainesville Super Regional.
The game featured a little bit of everything a fan wants to see this time of the year when it comes to college baseball.
There were extra innings, diving catches, a steal of home, home runs, close plays at the plate and a walk-off off the glove home run to win the game.
This all lasted until the final pitch when Florida’s Austin Langworthy drilled a 1-2 fastball from Auburn reliever Cody Greenhill over the right-field fence with the help of Tigers outfielder Steven Williams.
As Williams raced to the wall to try and make a catch, Langworthy’s shot bounced off his glove and over the wall for a walk-off home run and berth in the College World Series.
