The Gators face Valparaiso today in Bloomington in an elimination game.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. -- The Gators baseball team will try to keep its season alive today against Valparaiso here in the second round of the Bloomington Regional.

Florida suffered a 4-3 defeat to Austin Peay when Governors designated hitter Michael Davis connected for a three-run homer off reliever Ryan Harris in the eighth inning.

The Crusaders lost in even more heartbreaking fashion.

Facing No. 1-seed Indiana, Valparaiso led throughout until Chad Clark hit his first home run of the season -- a two-run shot in the bottom of the ninth -- to cap the Hoosiers' four-run rally for a 5-4 win.
