Takeaways: No. 4 Florida Gators baseball routs Florida A&M 19-0 in Gainesville Regional opener

No. 4 Florida Gators baseball wiped the floor with the Florida A&M Rattlers on Friday, using a 19-0 win to propel itself into the winner’s bracket of the Gainesville Regional portion of the 2015 NCAA Tournament.
