GAINESVILLE, Fla. – For the first time in school history the FAMU baseball team has registered a win over the Florida Gators.  The Rattlers improved to 1-18 all time against the Gators with a 4-3 win in Gainesville on Wednesday night.  

Florida A&M used two two-run home runs by Ryan Kennedy and Jeremy Barlow to power past Florida at McKethan Stadium. The win was the first for the Rattlers over a ranked opponent since defeating No. 4 Miami 2-1 in 1980 in Tallahassee.
