JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – The Ospreys scored nine runs in the first two innings as Florida A&M (14-21, 10-8 MEAC) fell 13-3 to North Florida (28-12, 6-3 A-Sun) in seven innings on Tuesday at Harmon Stadium. FAMU pitchers combined to walk six batters and had three wild pitches in the loss. The Rattlers first hit didn’t come until the sixth inning and Ryan Kennedy hit a three-run home run, his fifth of the season, to put FAMU on the scoreboard in the sixth. Timothy Reker had a nice outing as he pitched a season-long 3.2 innings of relief allowing just one run on four hits with one strikeout and one walk.

Rattler starting pitcher David Ogilvie (0-5) wasn’t able to make it out of the first inning as he allowed four runs on one hit, walked three Osprey batters and didn’t record an out.

This weekend’s series in New Orleans against Texas Southern has been cancelled due to heavy rain all week in the New Orleans area. Florida A&M will return to action on Tuesday, April 21 as they travel to Auburn, AL to face Auburn at Plainsman Park. First pitch is scheduled for 6:00 PM ET.
