ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. – The Augusta University baseball team fell 13-8 to the No. 6 nationally-ranked Flagler Saints on Sunday afternoon at Drysdale Field.
After the Jaguars (8-18, 7-12 PBC) and Flagler (22-4, 14-1 PBC) each won a game to start the series, game thee was the deciding factor. Flagler fought off AU to take the series.
