Florida-Auburn Game 3
Auburn leads 2-1, as it comes to bat in the bottom of the fourth... Thanks to a Kirsti Merritt three-run homer (where have we heard that before) that makes it 4-2 Florida at the time, the Gators hold a 4-3 lead as Auburn bats in the bottom of the seventh... Tigers have the tying run at third with one out... Tying run scores on a grounder to first. Fielder immediately throws home, with runner getting under the tag... Hard line-drive single to left, putting runners on first and second with one out. Lead runner is the potential game-winner... Ground-out to second (fielder not able to tag runner going from first to second, but throws batter out at first), advancing runners to second and third with two down... Deep grounder to short. Very close at first base as to whether batter or throw got there first, but moot because first-baseperson drops ball. Winning run scores from third... AUBURN WINS 5-4, FIRST LOSS OF SEASON FOR FLORIDA (26-1).
