Gators' Langworthy sends UF to CWS with walk-off HR

Florida takes down Auburn, 3-2

Sometimes, after more than 200 minutes of baseball, all it takes is one bounce.

In the bottom of the 11th inning of a win-or-go-home Super Regional Game 3 between Auburn and Florida, the No. 1 seed Gators and Tigers were tied up, 2-2. With one ball and two strikes in the count, Florida's leadoff hitter of the inning Austin Langworthy parked a ball deep in right field, where it bounced off the glove of Auburn's Steven Williams and flew over the wall.

Game over. Walk-off homer. Florida advances to the College World Series. Auburn loses in heart-breaking fashion.

Bedlam.

The hit was Langworthy's first of the day, but his second homer of the three-game series.

And now he'll get to try and make it home runs in three straight games, because the Gators are off to Omaha, where they'll face Texas Tech.
