BLOOMINGTON, Ind. (AP) — Valparaiso won its first NCAA tournament game since 1966, scoring four times in the seventh inning and holding on to eliminate Florida with a 5-4 victory Saturday in the Bloomington regional.
The Crusaders (32-27) had only two hits in the seventh, but took advantage of mistakes by Florida (29-30), which led 4-1. Gators third baseman Josh Tobias made an error with the bases loaded, allowing Valpo’s first run of the inning. The Crusaders got two more on bases-loaded walks to Tanner Vavra and John Loeffler. The go-ahead run came on Chris Manning’s run-scoring fielder’s choice.
Florida, which outhit Valparaiso 13-6, put runners on second and third with one out in the ninth, but Kyle Wormington (6-7) struck out Taylor Gushue and got Harrison Bader to ground out to end it.
Daniel Gibson (2-1) took the loss for the Gators, who dropped both of their NCAA tournament games.
