College World Series 2011: Florida Gators 8, Texas Longhorns 4

This is not the start that Taylor Jungmann and the Texas Longhorns were looking for in the 2011 College World Series. The Longhorns lost to the Florida Gators on Saturday 8-4, sending the Longhorns to the losers bracket (again). 

Jungmann was hung with the loss, lasting only three and a third innings. Jungmann surrendered five runs (four earned) on three hits while walking four. He also struck out three. Jungmann threw 75 pitches in the contest - only 39 of them were strikes.

Offensively, the Longhorns simply couldn't get much going. Texas' offense only mustered five hits in the game - and they didn't draw a walk. Shortstop Brandon Loy was the only Longhorn with multiple hits as Loy went 2-4. 

Hudson Randall picked up the win for the Gators, pitching six and two thirds innings, giving up four runs (one earned) on five hits. Randall struck out five. 

Centerfielder Bryson Smith paced Florida's offensive attack, going 2-2 with two walks, two RBIs and two runs scored.

The Longhorns will take on the North Carolina Tar Heels on Monday at 1 p.m. CDT in an elimination game.
