Nightmare inning sinks Gators in loss to Tennessee

For five innings, it looked like the No. 12 Gators were poised to end their five-game road losing streak and even up the series with No. 6 Tennessee.

They grabbed a 3-0 lead and turned in quality at bat after quality at bat. Starting pitcher Franco Aleman twirled a gem in his second start at Florida, giving up just one hit and no runs through five innings with four strikeouts.

Then the sixth inning came, and just about everything that could go wrong for the Gators did go wrong. The Volunteers scored five runs in the inning despite hitting only one ball that left the infield.
