  Watch: Auburn RF’s blunder helps send Florida to CWS A blunder by Auburn’s right fielder helped send Florida back to the College World Series on a walk-off home run.

The game was tied at two in the 11th when Austin Langworthy sent a 1-2 pitch deep to right.Auburn’s right fielder, Steven Williams, raced back for the ball and reached up for the catch. It looked like he had the ball on the warning track, but it bounced out of his glove and over the fence at Alfred A. McKethan Stadium in Gainesville.

It's been a rough few days for outfielders in the warning track.

Just two days after Auburn allowed a walk-off home run that bounced off the right fielder's glove, the phenomenon struck in the big leagues.

This time, Pirates left fielder Austin Meadows was the victim.

When Diamondbacks outfielder David Peralta hit a line drive to deep left field, Meadows had room to make a play on the ball. The ball hit off the side of Meadows' glove and softly deflected over the wall for a home run.

As replays would show, Meadows had it in his glove but simply couldn't make the catch.

The Pirates would get those runs back, though, and take a 4-2 lead in the third inning.

Jorge Soler likely headed for disabled list with fractured left foot .
Soler is expected to be out "a while" after fracturing the first metatarsal bone of his left foot during Friday's game.While Soler has steered clear of any major injury so far in 2018, this is the second time he’s injured his left foot in a week’s time.
