Gator baseball team loses in first round of SEC tournament

They went in with such high hopes, having won 12 of their last 16 games including four of the last five - and an SEC Eastern Division title.

But things went terribly wrong for the Florida baseball team on Wednesday.

The Gators committed four errors that led to seven unearned runs as No. 20 Arkansas (33-20) defeated the No. 9 Gators (38-19) 8-5 in the opening round of the 2009 SEC Tournament at Regions Park in Hoover, Ala.

The Razorbacks have won all four meetings between the two teams this season. Florida will face the loser of Wednesday's game between third-seeded Ole Miss (40-15) and sixth-seeded Georgia (35-20) in an elimination game at 11 a.m. on Thursday.
