Gainesville Super Regional schedule changes: Due to weather last night in Gainesville, Florida’s second game with Wake Forest was suspended and will resume today at 1:04 p.m. There was a two and a half hour delay before the game was called due to unrelenting rain. The Demon Deacons were up 5-4 on the Gators with two outs in the bottom of the fifth. Florida had just replaced starting pitcher Jackson Kowar with Austin Langworthy. Langworthy will face Wake’s lead-off hitter Jonathan Pryor with runners on first and second when the game resumes. If game three proves to be necessary, it would start today, 55 minutes after the conclusion of game two. (Gainesville Sun; Ryan Young, SEC Country)
