College of Charleston stuns Florida 3-2

GAINESVILLE, Fla. -- The College of Charleston scored all of its runs in the first inning and held on to stun regional top seed Florida 3-2 in a game that ended early Saturday morning after being delayed for 3 hours and 15 minutes because of a thunderstorm.

Brandon Murray hit an RBI double and Nick Pappas had a two-run double two batters later against Florida starter Logan Shore (7-4). Shore and reliever Justin Shafer held the Cougars (42-17) scoreless the rest of the game, but the Gators (40-22) wasted two bases-loaded opportunities and went down in order in the last three innings after cutting the deficit to one.

Eric Bauer (6-2) got the victory in relief, and Michael Hanzlik retired the Gators in order on 10 pitches in the ninth for his 15th save.

Charleston will play Long Beach State on Saturday, while Florida will meet North Carolina in an elimination game.
