Texas Longhorn Baseball Loses to Florida in the First Day of the College World Series

Texas Longhorns ace Taylor Jungmann pitched his shortest outing of the season as the Florida Gators doubled their way to an 8 to 4 win.

The Gators were led by designated hitter Brian Johnson who went 1 for 4 with a two run double in the seventh and center fielder Bryson Smith went 2 for 2 with 2 walks and 2 RBI.

Johnson’s seventh inning double was disputed immediately by the Florida bench as he coasted into second base.  Replays showed the ball struck a metal fence and concrete footing for the stands beyond the right field fence, and bounced back into play.  The umpires conferred, as there is no replay in college baseball, and kept Johnson’s hit a double.  This is the first year the College World Series is being played at the newly opened TD Ameritrade Park and the design of the outfield seating appears to be ripe for disputed home run calls.

Jungmann’s outing lasted 4 1/3 innings as he gave up 5 runs, 4 earned on 3 hits and 4 walks.  The Longhorns ended up using six pitchers during their rough night.

Texas will play North Carolina Monday afternoon at 1 in an elimination game.
