Top-seed FSU falls to Fresno.
A No. 1 seed has never won the College World Series, and the Seminoles are one loss away from keeping that streak intact.

By David Lee Simmons

OMAHA, NE - The top-seed jinx is in full effect, and Florida State is faced with the possibility of a quick exit from the College World Series.

Facing one of college baseball's best pitchers in Bobby Jones, FSU couldn't come up with the clutch hits that earmarked so many comebacks, falling 6-3 to Fresno State in the opening game of the CWS on Friday afternoon at Rosenblatt Stadium.

Vernon Spearman's three-run triple off FSU starter Roger Bailey keyed a four-run fifth-inning rally that wiped away FSU's 1-0 lead. Chris Falco's two-run homer off reliever John Nedeau in the sixth answered a Seminole run in the fifth for a 6-2 Bulldog lead.

Ty Mueller's solo homer in the seventh cut the deficit to three runs, but he couldn't score in the ninth after doubling.

Top-seeded FSU fell to 57-13, and will face Florida in an elimination game on Sunday at 4:37 p.m., live on ESPN. The Gators lost to LSU on Friday night. No 8 Fresno State (42-21) will face LSU at 7:37 p.m. Sunday.

The top seed has never won the title in the 43 previous CWS. The second-ranked Seminoles also are working against becoming the team with the most CWS trips without a title (11).

A team has come back from losing its first game to win the Series seven times.

"You have to give credit to the 'other' FSU," Seminole coach Mike Martin said. "We played as hard as we could. We didn't make an error, and when you do that, you expect to win. This is the only club that I've had that I thought could come back and (win) it. Because this bunch will never quit."

Against Jones (16-1), the idea of this team pulling off another comeback appeared pretty slim, even though FSU got to him in several innings. The 6-foot-4 right-hander struck out seven and walked one while scattering eight hits.

Though he admittedly tired in the later innings, he still retired the side in the sixth and eighth and struck out Garrett Blanton looking with Mueller on second to end the game.

"That was a typical outing for me," said Jones, who picked up his 15th straight complete game. "I felt good mentally. My slider was kind of flat, but I felt good about my other pitches. The sun took a lot out of me later on."

Jones passed Wichita State's Kennie Steenstra for the most wins (16) this season.

Bennett pointed to another key: Jones holding FSU's running game in check. Jones threw a seemingly endless number of pitchouts, and picked Eduardo Perez off first base in the fourth after giving up a lead-off single. FSU had one stolen base.

"We knew he was going to be tough, and he was," said Mueller, whose 3-for-4 day included two doubles and a homer. "We always had a man on base, but today we just didn't come through on the opportunities."

Bailey and Nedeau struggled against the bottom four hitters in the Fresno State lineup that came in with a combined .262 batting average.

Bailey, making his earliest exit since the Tulane game on April 28, was relieved during a four-run fifth inning. Bryan Judice (.270 coming in) led off with a single and went to third on Brant Brown's (.215) double to left.

Bailey walked Chris Falco (.270) to load the bases, setting up Vernon Spearman's three-run triple down the right-field line. Spearman, the No. 9 hitter, came in batting .265, including a .176 average in his last 10 games.

Mike Noel walked, but Bailey picked him off.

A loss on Sunday would leave everyone out of work, but Martin insisted that FSU will keep fighting.

"FSU is not out of this thing," he said. "We're down, but we're not out of it."

Top seed hits the bottom.
Florida blanks Florida State 5-0 to send the Seminoles home without a victory in the College World Series.

By David Lee Simmons

OMAHA, NE – The wall came surprisingly early, and every bit as hard.

But Florida State slammed into it anyway, losing to Florida 5-0 for an elimination from the College World Series on Sunday afternoon before an estimated 13,500 at Rosenblatt Stadium.

Marc Valdes fired a three-hit shutout to make FSU the first team to leave Omaha, after coming in as the top-seeded team. Valdes struck out five with three walks for his ninth complete game of the season.

Mario Linares and Bo Camposano hit back-to-back doubles for a three-run Gator sixth inning.

No. 5 Florida next plays Tuesday against the loser of Sunday night’s game between Louisiana State and Fresno State on Tuesday at 4:07 p.m. EDT.

The Seminoles (57-14) became the first top-seeded team to leave in tow games. Those 57 wins tied the 1990 team’s record of 57-15 for third-most wins in school history.

FSU also earned the dubios distinction of having the most CWS appearances, 11, without a title. FSU has yet to win a national championship in any of the major sports: football, basketball or baseball.

“It was a very unfortunate trip for us,” said FSU coach Mike Martin, who has taken the Seminoles to the CWS in five of his 12 years. “We played hard, and we had probably one of the most impressive batting practices I’ve seen.”

Which makes the loss to the Gators, the ancient state rival, that much tougher to swallow for FSU. The Seminoles continued to struggle offensively much the same way thet had since the Metro Tournament.

The three-hit total was the lowest since Tulane’s Alan Zweig pitched a two-hitter in a 2-1 win on April 28 in New Orleans.

FSU scored 26 runs in the Atlantic Regional and CWS, or 4.3 per game, compared to the season average of 7.8.

For the second straight game, the Seminoles couldn’t come up with the key runs against an impressive starting pitcher. Against Fresno State’s Bobby Jones, FSU scored three tuns on eight hits, with only one run coming in the final four innings.

On Sunday, they blew the few scoring opportunities they had against Valdes, a sinker pitcher known for forcing lots of groundouts. Valdes also made good on his reputation for establishing control of the plate, hitting Ty Mueller in the second and Kenny Felder in the fifth.

Both drew glares from the Seminoles. Felder broke the single-season record for hit-pitches with his 14th in the fifth.

Valdes’ shutout was his second straight, giving him 18 straight scoreless innings.

Interestingly, that sinker wasn’t sinking, Valdes said.

“I don’t think I had a sinkerball at all today, which is why there were more flyouts and less groundouts. I do know my pitches were running in a lot and that gave them some problems.”

FSU catcher Pedro Grifol, the Seminole with more than one hit with two agreed.

“His slider was breaking away, and he kept spotting his fastball. He wasn’t at all like Bobby Jones. We just didn’t adjust at the plate.”

As frustrated as FSU was at the plate, problems in the starting pitching continued. Reliever Tim Davis of nearby Bristol, drawing his second start of the year, gave up a run in the first then coasted over the next four innings.

Then, in the sixth, Linares slapped a two-run double, followed by Campasano’s double for a 4-0 lead. Davis’ 5 2/3 innings was the longest start by a Seminole in four games, but wasn’t exactly a quality one. Davis did strike out six and walk one before Ricky Kimball entered in the sixth.

Bryan Harris pitched the eighth, giving up an RBI single to Ted Rich.

FSU had chances in the second, fifth and sixth innings, but came up short each time. With runners on first and second and two out, Garrett Blanton flew out to center.

Valdes hit Felder to open the fifth, and Mueller followed with a grounder that third baseman Herbert Perry couldn’t handle.

Blanton’s bunt went straight to first baseman Brent Killen, who charged the ball and threw Felder out at third. Link Jarrett and Allen Bevis followed with groundouts, stranding Mueller at third.

In the sixth, FSU attempted what looked like another two-out rally, with Grifol doubling down the left-field line. Arnold called for Valdes to walk Chris Roberts intentionally to get to Felder, who grounded out to third.
