Florida baseball’s game with Stetson cancelled: The Gators hosted the Hatters last night. The game was called midway through the fifth due to rain and lightning, with Stetson having built a 10-1 lead. The game will not be rescheduled. NCAA rules state that a game must complete five innings for it to be official, so the Hatters will not be able to record it as a win. Florida hosts Tennessee for three games this weekend.
