The game was a record-setting one for the Gators, who hit six home runs to tie the series and break the record for the most runs in a MCWS game. Ty Evans hit a grand slam in the third inning, while Joe Caglianone finished with three runs and five RBI, including two homers. Wyatt Langford notched his second homer of the game, putting three more on the board. Florida won the game 24-4, beating the Tigers by the largest margin in MCWS finals history.
