01/27/2002, Game suspended on 1/26 due to rain (Hilo) with one out in the top of second inning, resumed on 1/27 (Kona).
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

KAILUA-KONA, HI - It took more than a rain-halted game and a two-hour drive to slow down the visiting Florida State University baseball team as the University of Hawaii at Hilo dropped two games to the second-ranked Seminoles, 16-2 and 5-1.

The series ends with a 2 p.m. game a Francis Wong Stadium on Monday, January 28. It will also be Senior Citizen Day as anyone over 55 will be admitted at no charge.

Saturday's game was halted with the Seminoles leading 6-0 with two men on in the second at Wong Stadium. They picked up the game at Simmons Field where they left off and used three singles, a fielder's choice and a walk to post three more runs. They posted three runs in the third and sixth, and one in the fourth.

The Vulcans (0-9-1) posted a run in the third. Darren Chu doubled to right center with two outs then scored on Kaliko Oligo's single. The second run was scored on Jeremy Loque's seventh-inning single.

Ryan Barthelemy led the Seminoles 13-hit attack with four hits and five RBI which included a two-run homerun. Steven Drew added a pair of hits.

Jeremiah Wolske gave the Vulcans five solid innings in the second game. He gave up four hits and only one earned run while striking out three. Jason Castro allowed just four hits and two runs over the next three innings as Joel Zimmerman struck out two in the final inning.

Following Tony Richie's RBI triple in the first, Wolske held the Seminoles in check until the fourth. Two Vulcan errors allowed FSU to post two more runs. A double by Aaron Cheesman and single by Kevin Richmond added the final two runs.

With a runner on first, Oligo tripled down the right field line in the eighth for the Vulcans' run.

Oligo was 2-for-4 with an RBI for the Vulcans.

Barthelemy, Tony Richie and Tony McQuade had two hits apiece for the Seminoles.

HAWAII 3, FLORIDA STATE 2

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

HONOLULU, HI - The University of Hawaii Rainbow baseball team (1-0) defeated the No. 2 Florida State Seminoles (3-1) 3-2 off a game-winning sacrifice fly by Derek Honma in the bottom of the ninth. The game was witnessed by 3,933 fans at the newly renamed Les Murakami Stadium. The win was the first for new UH baseball coach Mike Trapasso.

With the Seminole pitchers shutting down the Rainbows for the first seven innings, Hawaii came into the bottom of the eighth down 2-0. Brian Bock singled, then advanced to third on a double by Tim Montgomery. He later scored when Honma hit into a ground out.

The Rainbow bats then came alive in the bottom of the ninth. After getting the first hitter out, Seminole pitcher Eric Roman walked two straight batters before giving up the game-tying RBI on a single by Brian Bock. Honma then hit a sacrifice fly to right field, scoring Cortland Wilson, to win the game.

Leading the way for the Rainbows was Brian Bock, who hit 2-for-4 with one run scored and the game-tying RBI. Honma led Hawaii with two RBI on the night. The winning pitcher was Aaron Pribble who came in relief to pitch the ninth inning. Bryan Lee, Hawaii's starter, had a good performance holding the Seminoles to just two runs in eight innings of work.

The game was preceded by a big ceremony that commemorated the renaming of the baseball stadium to the Les Murakami Stadium. Included in the distinguished speakers were governor Ben Cayetano, UH President Evan Dobelle and Les Murakami himself.

The two teams will square off again tomorrow in the second game of their four game series at 6:35 p.m. The starters for that game were penciled in as Marc LaMacchia for Florida State and freshman Ricky Bauer for Hawaii.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

HONOLULU, HI - The University of Hawaii Rainbow baseball team (1-1) fell to the No. 2 Florida State Seminoles (4-1) 8-5 in front of 2,525 fans in the second game of a four-game series at the Les Murakami Stadium.

Senior Sean Yamashita put in four good innings in relief, giving up two runs while recording five strikeouts while freshman Ricky Bauer got the loss for Hawaii. Marc LaMacchia received his first win in a five inning, one run, six strikeout performance for the Seminoles.

Junior Brent Cook supplied a lot of the offense for the 'Bows, going 2-for-5 with two RBI, Brian Bock had another solid night with a 2-for-5 performance with one RBI. Also swinging the bat well for Hawaii was Lane Nogawa, going 3-for-4 with three runs scored.

The Rainbows were down 8-3 going into the bottom of the ninth, but mounted a small comeback. It started with a double by Nogawa and a single by Arthur Guillen. Cook then reached on an error to score a run. Then Martines singled to score Guillen to cut the Seminole lead to three. But with two runners on and only one out, Hawaii could do no more, as Cortland Wilson and Bock grounded out to end the game.

Coming up big for the Seminoles were second baseman Jeff Probst and left fielder Tony McQuade. Probst hit 4-for-5 with three RBI and a run scored, while McQuade knocked in one and scored one, going 3-for-5.

The two teams will play again Friday night at 6:35 p.m. at the Les Murakami Stadium before wrapping up the series Saturday at 12:05 p.m. The starters for tomorrow's game are slated as Ryan Yamamoto for Hawaii and Matt Lynch for Florida State.

HONOLULU, HI - The University of Hawaii Rainbows (1-2) fell to the No. 2 Florida State Seminoles (5-1) 7-4 in front of 3,330 fans in the third game of four game series at the Les Murakami Stadium.

After falling behind 7-0 in the first seven innings, the Rainbows fought back with four runs in the eighth, many by non-starters. Freshmen Danny Mocny and Jason Carlson singled to left to set up a Grady Symonds double down the left field line, scoring one. Kevin Gilbride then doubled to right to score another fun before Chad Boudon scored Symonds on a ground out to first. Nogawa then provided the only run by the starters when a ground out to the short stop drove in Gilbride. But the Rainbow bats couldn't keep coming in the ninth as Hawaii went down 1-2-3 to preserve the Seminole win.

Hawaii did get good innings out of relief pitcher William Quaglieri, who gave up two runs while striking out six in five innings of work. Ryan Yamamoto suffered the loss for the 'Bows while Matt Lynch earned his second win for Florida State. Eric Roman picked up the save for the Seminoles.

Michael Futrell provided a lot of the offense for FSU tonight, going 2-for-2 with three RBI and two runs scored. Stephen Drew went 1-for-4 with a triple before going down with an injury. He was taken to the hospital and x-rays found that he fractured his fifth metatarsal in his left foot. He'll be wearing a hard walking shoe and will likely be out for 4-6 weeks.

The two teams will finish out the four game series tomorrow at 12:05 p.m. at the Les Murakami Stadium. Hawaii will go with freshman Jason Piepmeier, while FSU will pitch junior Robby Read.

HONOLULU, HI - The University of Hawaii Rainbows (1-3) fell to the No. 2 Florida State Seminoles (6-1) 12-1 in front of 2,679 in the final game of the teams' four game series at the Les Murakami Stadium.

After mounting comebacks in each of the first three games, the Rainbow bats just couldn't get it going, as they got their only run in the fifth inning. The Seminoles pounded out five runs in the first including a three-run home run by Nick Rogers.

The Rainbows did receive a good performance out of pitcher Aaron Pribble in the loss. Pribble pitched seven and a third innings, giving up four runs while striking out eight. Saturday's starter Jason Piepmeier was credited with the loss. Kevin Gilbride and Cortland Wilson provided most of the offense for Hawaii, with both going 2-for-3.

Rogers had the big bat for Florida State, going 2-for-5 with six RBI and a home run. Kevin Richmond (3-for-5 with two RBI) and Tony Richie (2-for-4 with two RBI) also had good performances at the plate for the Seminoles.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 1 Stanford (3-1) topped No. 2 Florida State (6-2) by a score of 9-3 behind a strong pitching performance by ace Jeremy Guthrie in front of 4,524 fans at Dick Howser Stadium Friday afternoon. Guthrie (2-0) went six innings and allowed two runs (one earned) on seven hits while striking out eight and walking two. The Cardinal gave Guthrie all the run support he would need with seven runs in the top of the first inning. The home opening loss was Florida State's first since losing to Georgia Southern in 1981.

Stanford's seven-run first inning was keyed by a pair of two-run singles by Carlos Quentin and Donny Lucy. Andy Topham knocked in two more runs with a double down the right field line. FSU starter Blair Varnes (0-1), who had not given up a run in his first two starts, was chased after recording just one out. Varnes gave up six runs (five earned) on five hits.

The Seminoles got two back in the bottom of the second. Tony Richie and Mike Futrell reached on singles before scoring on base hits by Tony McQuade and Bryan Zech.

The Cardinal got those two runs back in the top of the fourth inning on run-scoring singles by Lucy and Topham.

FSU threatened in the top of the seventh when McQuade and Jerrod Brown walked and Scott Toole singled to load the bases. The Seminoles managed just one run in the inning when Kevin Richmond hit into a 6-4-3 double play and Richie Smith grounded out to second.

McQuade and Toole led Florida State offensively with two hits apiece. Ryan Barthelemy singled to extend his career-best hitting streak to 26 games.

The two teams meet again Saturday at 2:00 p.m. with FSU lefty Matt Lynch (2-0) scheduled to face Stanford lefty Tim Cunningham (1-0). Saturday's game is sold out and only 200 tickets remain for Sunday's 1:00 p.m. contest.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - After No. 2 Florida State Seminoles (6-3) took an early 7-1 lead, No. 1 Stanford (4-1) came back to win a seesaw battle by a score of 15-11 in front of a Dick Howser Stadium crowd of 4,875. The Seminoles took an 11-10 lead in the bottom of the seventh, but the Cardinal put up five runs in the top of the eighth to seal the victory. Stanford reliever John Hudgins was the winner, working the final four innings and allowing three runs on three hits.

FSU got on the scoreboard first with three runs in the bottom of the first inning. Tony McQuade knocked in two runs with a bases loaded single to right. Blair McCaleb followed with another two-out hit to score the third run.

The Cardinal put one run up in the top of the second on Scott Dragicevich's RBI-double to right field.

Bryan Zech and Kevin Richmond started things off in the second with back-to-back doubles. Nick Rogers plated Richmond with a single up the middle to make it 5-1. The sixth run came across on a Stanford wild pitch and Jerrod Brown increased FSU's lead to 7-1 with a sacrifice fly.

The Cardinal got another run back in the fourth when Dragicevich singled and scored on a double by Andy Topham.

In the top of the fifth inning, the Cardinal tied the game at seven. Ryan Garko's three-run homer did most of the damage and knocked FSU starter Matt Lynch out of the game.

The Cardinal took a 10-7 lead with three runs in the sixth. Brian Hall and Andy Topham picked up RBI's with a pair of groundouts and Donny Lucy had a run-scoring single.

FSU's Tony Richie tied the game in the bottom half of the sixth with a three-run homer to left, his first of the season.

The Seminoles regained the lead in the seventh on Chris Hart's RBI-single to left. The base hit scored Richie Smith, who had walked and stolen second.

The lead was short-lived as Stanford took advantage of three FSU errors to score five runs in the eighth inning. Hart's error at third on a Lucy grounder allowed the tying and go-ahead runs to score.

Stanford's Carlos Quentin set a new NCAA record for hit by pitch as he was beaned five times Saturday.

FSU's Ryan Barthelemy extended his hitting streak to 27 games.

The two teams complete the series Sunday at 1:00 p.m. with FSU's Robby Read (2-0) scheduled to face SU's Mark Jecmen (0-1). Less than 200 tickets are available for Sunday's contest.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Senior right fielder Mike Futrell had a career-best three home run day as he led No. 2 Florida State (7-3) past No. 1 Stanford (4-2) by a score of 7-6 in front of 4,618 fans at Dick Howser Stadium. Futrell's third home run of the day, a solo shot to left in the bottom of the eighth inning, put FSU up 7-4 and ended up being the game-winning RBI after the Cardinal scored two in the top of the ninth. A strong relief appearance by Blair Varnes, who earned the victory, helped the Seminoles avoid a series sweep.

Stanford jumped out to the early lead with two runs in the top of the first inning. Chris O'Riordan led off with a single and Sam Fuld doubled to put runners on the corners. Jason Cooper plated them with a base hit to right center.

FSU got one back in the bottom half of the inning when Tony Richie singled home Nick Rogers.

The Cardinal stretched the lead to 4-1 with single runs in the fourth and fifth innings. Carlos Quentin scored on Donny Lucy's grounder in the fourth and Ryan Garko scored on Cooper's single in the fifth.

The Seminoles took the lead for good in the bottom of the fifth inning. Futrell got things going with his first home run of the game, Scott Toole scored on a passed ball and Ryan Barthelemy made it 5-4 with a two-run single left. The base hit extended Barthelemy's career-long hitting streak to 28 games.

Two more solo home runs by Futrell in the sixth and eighth inning pushed the FSU lead to three. O'Riordan hit a two-run homer over the right field screen to make things interesting in the ninth. Fuld followed with a single to left, but Richie brought the game to a close when he threw out Fuld attempting to steal second for the final out.

Varnes (1-1), who made his first career relief appearance after 60 starts, was the winner after giving up just one run in 3.2 innings of work. Eric Roman picked up his second save of the season, allowing two runs (one earned) in 1.1 innings. Mark Jecmen (0-2) gave up five runs (three earned) on five hits in 4.1 innings in a losing effort.

Futrell finished the day 3-for-4 while Jerrod Brown (2-for-4) and Richie (2-for-4) also had multi-hit games for the Tribe.

The Seminoles return to action next weekend with a three-game home series against nationally-ranked Arizona State, who beat Tennessee on Friday and Saturday. Game times at Dick Howser Stadium are set for 3:30 p.m. on Friday, 2:00 p.m. on Saturday and 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 2 Florida State (8-3) handed No. 5 Arizona State (7-1) its first loss of the season by a score of 9-4 in front of 3,065 at Dick Howser Stadium. Junior Jerrod Brown led the way for the Tribe as he belted a career-high three hits while Nick Rogers, Ryan Barthelemy and Tony McQuade had two hits apiece. All nine FSU starters had at least one hit. The 15-hit attack and nine run total were more than enough for starter Matt Lynch, who improved to 3-0 with the win.

The visiting Sun Devils took an early 2-0 lead in the top of the first inning. Steve Garrabrants led off with a double and advanced to third when Dustin Pedroia doubled off the screen in right. Rod Allen plated Garrabrants with a groundout and Jeremy West knocked in Pedroia with the third double of the inning.

Florida State tied it up with two runs in the bottom of the second. Mike Futrell scored when Jeff Probst grounded into a double play with the bases loaded. Richie Smith scored the second run on an RBI-single by Brown.

ASU regained the lead when Allen singled, moved to third on a base hit by West, and scored on a groundout by Dennis Wyrick.

In the bottom of the fourth, FSU took the lead for good at 5-3 with three runs. Barthelemy had the first RBI with a bases loaded single to right and Tony Richie followed with a two-RBI base hit up the middle.

The Seminoles upped the lead to 8-3 in the fifth inning on RBI-singles by Bryan Zech, Rogers and Barthelemy.

FSU would add one more in the eighth on Probst's RBI-double and ASU put one on the board in the top of the ninth for the final margin of 9-4.

Lynch (3-0) allowed three runs on nine hits over six innings, striking out four without a walk. Daniel Hodges worked the final three innings and gave up one run on four hits for his first save of the year.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 2 Florida State (9-3) won the second game of a three-game series with No. 5 Arizona State (7-2) by a score of 5-3 as 4,467 fans looked on at Dick Howser Stadium. Blair Varnes (2-1) earned the victory after allowing just one run in 5.2 innings. Varnes struck out six and didn't walk a single ASU batter. Bryan Zech recorded the game-winning RBI with a sacrifice fly in the bottom of the fourth inning. Ryan Barthelemy extended his career-long hitting streak to 30 games with a single in the seventh. He is now four games away from J.D. Drew's school record (34).

FSU took the early lead with two runs in the bottom of the second inning. Tony Richie drew a walk and Mike Futrell singled before Richie Smith advanced them to second and third with a sacrifice bunt. Tony McQuade followed with a two-run double to right-center. The Seminoles tacked on another run in the third when Richie grounded into a 6-4-3 double play with the bases loaded to score Jerrod Brown.

In the fourth inning, Smith led off with a single and advanced to third on another double by McQuade. Smith then made it 4-0 when he scored on Zech's sacrifice fly. The Sun Devils finally got on the board in the sixth when Steve Garrabrants led off the inning with a home run to right.

ASU cut the Seminole lead to 4-3 in the seventh on a two-run, pinch-hit double by Nick Walsh. In the bottom half of the seventh, Barthelemy's RBI-single to left extended his hitting streak and also gave his team some breathing room at 5-3.

Closer Eric Roman came on in the ninth and worked a scoreless inning to earn his third save of the season. Kevin Lynch added 1.2 scoreless innings out of the FSU bullpen. ASU starter Mike Esposito (2-1) took the loss after giving up four runs on five hits in three innings of work.

McQuade went 3-for-3 with three doubles and two RBI to lead Florida State offensively. Brown was 2-for-4 with a run scored.

The Seminoles will go for the sweep on Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium. FSU Right-hander Robby Read (2-0) is scheduled to face ASU left-hander Bryce Kartler (1-0).

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 2 Florida State (10-3) completed a sweep of No. 5 Arizona State (7-3) with a 6-4 Sunday victory in front of 3,864 fans at Dick Howser Stadium. Trailing 4-0, the Seminoles put up three runs in both the seventh and eighth innings to win their fourth straight game. Nick Rogers had a two-run homer in the seventh and Tony Richie came through with the game-winning RBI in the eighth.

The visiting Sun Devils got two runs in the second when Andre Eithier knocked in Jeremy West with a triple, and then scored on Cesar Castillo's single. Eithier's triple fell just out of the reach of a diving Mike Futrell in left field.

Arizona State added single runs in the fifth and seventh innings to increase the lead to 4-0. Rod Allen hit a solo homer in the fifth and also picked up the RBI in the seventh with a single that scored Nick Walsh.

Florida State finally got it going in the bottom half of the seventh when Tony Richie and Chris Hart drew one out walks. Richie scored from second when ASU pitcher Bryce Kartler threw the ball away on a failed pick-off attempt at first base. Rogers followed with his third home run of the season, a two-run shot to right, to make it 4-3.

With Sun Devil closer Robbie McClellan taking the hill for Kartler, FSU put together another rally in the eighth. Blair McCaleb led off with a single and Dominic Robinson took his place at first base as a pinch-runner. Robinson advanced to third on Mike Futrell's single. Kevin Richmond tied the game at four when he brought Robinson home with a sacrifice fly to center. Scott Toole then singled to right to put runners on the corners once again. Richie's single to left scored Futrell and put FSU up for the first time at 5-4. The Tribe added an insurance run when Toole stole home as Richie drew a throw from the catcher and started a run-down between first and second.

Junior Daniel Davidson earned his first career victory after working 1.2 scoreless innings of relief. Eric Roman earned his second save in as many days and fourth of the season after working a scoreless ninth. Starter Robby Read went six innings and gave up three runs on six hits, walking two and striking out five.

Ryan Barthelemy extended his hitting streak to 31 games and is three shy of J.D. Drew's school record (34). Futrell was the only Seminole with more than one hit, going 2-for-3 with a run scored.

Up next for Florida State are home games against Siena (3:30 p.m.) on Friday and Jacksonville (2:00 p.m.) on Saturday. The Seminoles hit the interstate Sunday for a road game at Jacksonville (2:00 p.m.).

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 1 Florida State (11-3) defeated the Siena Saints (0-4) by a score of 10-2 on Friday in front of 1,614 fans at Dick Howser Stadium. The Seminoles moved their winning streak to five games behind a strong pitching performance by sophomore Marc LaMacchia (2-0). LaMacchia struck out seven and didn't give up a run on four hits in five innings of work. Five Seminoles recorded extra base hits in the win.

The Seminoles took a 4-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning on four consecutive hits, including doubles from Jerrod Brown and Mike Futrell. Ryan Barthelemy had one of the first inning hits to extend his hitting streak to 32-games, only two off of J.D. Drew's school record of 34.

The Tribe extended their lead to 6-0 in the third inning when Nick Rogers led off with a double to left field and moved to third on Barthelemy's sacrifice fly. Kevin Richmond followed with a RBI-single to center that scored Rogers. Richmond moved to third when Siena pitcher Josh Copskey threw the ball away on a failed pick-off attempt. Richmond scored the sixth run when Tony Richie singled to left field.

In the fourth inning, the Seminoles tacked on another run when Blair McCaleb opened up with a single and advanced on a base hit by Bryan Zech. Zech and McCaleb both advanced when Brown was hit by a pitch. McCaleb then scored when Rogers walked with the bases loaded to score McCaleb.

Siena finally got on the board with their only two runs in the eighth inning with run-scoring hits by Tony Cipolla and Luis Khoury.

Rogers paced FSU offensively with a 3-for-3 outing. Barthelemy led the team with three RBI.

Siena starter Josh Copskey (1-0) took the loss for the Saints after giving up all nine runs on 11 hits.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 1 Florida State extended its' winning streak to six games with a 1-0 win over Jacksonville on Saturday in front of 2,406 fans at Dick Howser Stadium. The shutout was the first for FSU since a 3-0 win over The Citadel on March 27, 2001. Tony Richie's RBI-single in the sixth to score Ryan Barthelemy proved to be the game-winner. Matt Lynch (4-0) earned the victory after giving up one hit and striking out five in 7.1 innings. Eric Roman came in to earn his fifth save of the season.

Barthelemy went 2-for-4 to extend his national-best (current) hitting streak to 33-games. He is now tied with Marshall McDougall for second on the FSU all-time list and is now one game from tying J.D. Dew's school record of 34.

The Seminoles allowed just two-hits on the day, both singles. The JU hit total was the fewest since Jon McDonald and Robby Read put up back-to-back two-hit performances in complete game wins over Central Florida on May 28, 2000 in the NCAA Regional.

Florida State got the only run they needed in the sixth inning. Barthelemy hit a double down the right field line with one out and came around to score on a two-out single to center by Richie.

Jacksonville's best chance to score came in the bottom of the eighth but FSU's Jerrod Brown threw out Chad Oliva at home. Oliva was attempting to score from second after a throwing error by Barthelemy.

Florida State will travel to Jacksonville on Sunday for a 2:00 p.m. meeting at Alexander Brest Stadium against the Dolphins. Senior right-hander Blair Varnes (2-1) is scheduled to start for the Seminoles. The Tribe will return home on Tuesday (3:30) to play Western Carolina in a two-game series.

JACKSONVILLE 13, FLORIDA STATE 4
02/24/2002, JACKSONVILLE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

JACKSONVILLE, FL - The pitching and hitting came together at the same time for the Jacksonville baseball team as it pounded top-ranked Florida State, 13-4, Sunday afternoon before a standing room only crowd at Alexander Brest Field.

Junior pitcher Ryan Courson (North Ft. Myers, Fla.) was spotted a 13-0 lead and then mowed down the Seminoles (12-4), holding them scoreless through seven innings before running into trouble in the eighth. Courson threw 113 pitches in 7 1/3 innings, allowing only four hits, two unearned runs, walking one and striking out six. A couple of streaks came to an end as the Dolphins snapped a 20-game losing streak to the Seminoles, and the JU pitchers combined to end FSU third baseman Ryan Barthelemy's nation-best 33-game hitting streak with an 0-for-4 performance.

Senior second baseman B.J. Weed (Maybrook, N.Y) led the Dolphins' 16-hit attack as he went 3-for-5, including his first home run of the season and had three RBI. Senior designated hitter Josh Johnson (Jacksonville, Fla.) went 4-for-5 with an RBI and a run scored. Senior leftfielder Chad Oliva (Palm Beach Gardens, Fla.) slammed a double in the gap in rightcenter and a triple of the top of the wall in right to extend his streak to 17 games in which he has reached base safely. Every JU starter had at least one hit in the game.

The Dolphins (5-5) broke through a scoreless tie with two runs in the bottom of the third. After shortstop Robby Cichra (Denton, Texas) reached on a dropped fly ball by FSU leftfielder Michael Futrell and advanced to third on a balk by Seminole starter Blair Varnes, Weed slapped a single to center field and later scored on Phil Nover's single to right field. JU then broke the game wide open by putting up five runs in the fifth when the first three hitters reached safely and FSU helped the cause by making two errors. The Dolphins capped their scoring in the seventh, scoring six runs, highlighted by Weed's two-run homer off the light pole in leftfield to take a 13-0 lead.

FSU scored its only runs of the game in the eighth when centerfielder Nick Rogers, who had three of the Seminoles' five hits, blasted a grand slam off Jason Ryals (Gainesville, Fla.), who relieved Courson and finished the eighth. Bryan Williams (Winter Park, Fla.), who started the game at third base, came on to pitch a perfect ninth, striking out one.

Varnes threw four innings for FSU and allowed seven hits, five runs, three unearned and struck out three. JU did the most damage off of Justin Miller, who allowed six runs, three earned on four hits in only one inning of work.

The last time JU beat FSU was a 3-0 victory at Alexander Brest Field on April 20, 1994. The Dolphins return to action when they visit cross-town rival North Florida Wednesday at 7 p.m. at Harmon Stadium.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 1 Florida State (13-4) defeated Western Carolina (4-3) by a score of 13-3 at Dick Howser Stadium on Tuesday behind a strong pitching performance from junior right-hander Robby Read (3-0). The junior right-hander struck out four and walked two, while allowing just one hit in six scoreless innings of work. Junior Jerrod Brown led FSU's 13-hit attack with two hits, including a three-run double that started the scoring in the second inning. Tony Richie, Blair McCaleb and Bryan Zech all recorded home runs in the victory.

The Seminoles took a 3-0 lead in the second inning on just one hit. McCaleb, Scott Toole and Mike Futrell walked to load the bases for Brown's three-run double.

Richie put FSU up 4-0 with a solo home run, his second of the season, in the bottom of the third inning.

FSU scored two more in the fourth on a sacrifice fly from Brown and a Futrell run on a throwing error.

In the bottom of the fifth, Scott Toole knocked in a pair of runs with a triple down the right field line to push the lead to 8-0.

Florida State put the game out of reach with five runs in the sixth inning. Richie recorded an RBI-single, McCaleb launched a three-run homer to right center and Zech made it 13-0 with his second homer (solo) of the season.

The Catamounts scored their only runs of the game when Billy Franchi knocked in a run with a double and Todd Buchanan recorded a two-RBI single to center off reliever Jason Newlin.

Brown had a career-high four RBI and was one of five Seminoles two pick up two hits on the afternoon (Richie, McCaleb, Zech, & Toole).

Justin Miller and Chris Whidden each worked a scoreless inning of relief. Newlin gave up three runs on four hits in one inning of work.

Brad Josey (0-1) took the loss for WCU, surrendering six runs (five earned) on five hits in 3.1 innings. Josey walked five and struck out four.

The series concludes Wednesday at 3:30 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium. FSU left-hander Trent Peterson (0-1) is scheduled to face Western Carolina right-hander Jared Burton (1-1). Florida State will host Siena on Thursday (3:30) before traveling to Florida on Friday.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - On a cold Wednesday afternoon at Dick Howser Stadium, No. 1 Florida State (14-4) defeated Western Carolina (4-4) by a score of 3-0. Sophomore left-hander Trent Peterson (1-1) had an impressive outing, allowing three hits in seven scoreless innings. Peterson struck out eight and walked just one, facing 25 batters on the day. Kevin Lynch worked a scoreless eighth inning and Eric Roman finished off the Catamounts in the ninth to earn his sixth save of the season.

Florida State took the lead with a run in the bottom of the first inning. With the bases loaded, Bryan Zech picked up an easy RBI when he was hit by a pitch.

The Seminoles added an unearned run to make it 2-0 after three innings. Nick Rogers drew a walk, stole second and advanced to third on a failed pick-off attempt before scoring on Blair McCaleb's groundout.

In the fourth inning, the Seminoles scored the final run of the game to make it 3-0. Once again, FSU's run came across without a hit as Jerrod Brown walked with the bases loaded.

Western Carolina right-hander Jared Burton (1-2) took the loss after giving up three runs (two earned) on seven hits in six innings. Burton walked five and struck out seven.

Mike Futrell (2-for-4, double) and Richie Smith (2-for-3, run) paced the Seminoles offensively.

All-American Ryan Barthelemy came down with the flu and did not play in the game.

Florida State will host Siena Thursday at 3:30 p.m. with right-hander Marc LaMacchia (2-0, 2.53 ERA) scheduled to start for the Tribe. FSU travels to Gainesville for two games against Florida on Friday (6:30 p.m.) and Saturday (3:00 p.m.). The Gators come to Tallahassee on Sunday for a 2:00 p.m. meeting to complete the three-game set.

FLORIDA STATE 5, FLORIDA 4
03/01/2002, GAINESVILLE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

GAINESVILLE, FL - Nick Rogers' ninth inning RBI single broke a 4-4 tie and lifted No. 1 Florida State to a 5-4 victory against No. 6 Florida Friday before 4,246 at McKethan Stadium. The loss drops Florida to 11-1 on the season while Florida State improves to 16-4 overall.

Game two of the three-game weekend series begins Saturday at 3 p.m. at McKethan Stadium. Game three is scheduled for 2 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium in Tallahassee.

The loss ends Florida's win streak at 11 games and the Gators' home win streak at nine games. The 11-0 start ties a school record for best start to a season. UF was also 11-0 in 1989.

With the score tied at 4-4 and one out in the top of the ninth, Rogers's single to centerfield scored Bryan Zech from second base. Zech advanced to second on a Mike Futrell groundout. Florida threatened to tie the game in the bottom of the ninth when Brian Rose reached base on a one-out single. Pinch runner Jonathan Tucker was caught stealing second but Jake Riordan reached base on a walk and stole second. FSU reliever Eric Roman earned his seventh save of the year when Mark Kiger flew out to end the game.

FSU reliever Kevin Lynch (1-0) earned the win after throwing 2/3 innings. He ended a Gator scoring threat in the bottom of the eighth when he got Aaron Davidson to ground out with the bases loaded.

Florida stranded 15 runners on base including three each in the fourth, fifth and eighth innings. The Gators outhit the Seminoles 11-9. The two teams also combined for seven errors on the evening.

Goldfarb (0-1) suffered his first loss. He pitched 2.2 innings and allowed five hits and one run. Ramshaw allowed just one earned run in 6.1 innings pitched. He struck out five batters and gave up four hits and four walks.

The Gators grabbed a 2-0 lead, scoring runs in the first and second innings taking advantage of a throwing error and Ben Harrison sacrifice bunt RBI respectively. Florida State battled back to tie the game at 2-2 with two runs in the fourth on Tony Richie's two-RBI double down the left field line. The Seminoles made it 3-2 in the fifth on a Ryan Barthelemy RBI groundout but the Gators battled back to tie the game again at 3-3 on an Aaron Davidson single. After FSU grabbed a 4-3 seventh inning lead when Zech scored on a Gator throwing error, Florida tied the game at 4-4 in the eighth on Mario Garza's single to right field.

Mike Futrell (2-for-5), Nick Rogers (2-for-4) and Blair McCaleb (2-for-4) led the Seminoles at the plate.

FLORIDA STATE 9, FLORIDA 4

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The top-ranked Florida State baseball team defeated No. 6 Florida by a score of 9-4 in front of 4,150 fans on a cold afternoon at Dick Howser Stadium. The Seminoles have now won five straight and swept Florida for the second time in three years. Florida State improved to 17-4 on the season while Florida fell to 11-2. Freshman Kevin Lynch (2-0), who has defeated UF for his first two career victories, earned the win in relief after allowing just one hit in three scoreless innings. FSU's six-run seventh inning, capped by Jerrod Brown's triple with the bases loaded, proved to be the difference.

Florida State has won nine of the last 11 against Florida and leads the all-time series by a mark of 105-83. Mike Martin is now 51-38 all-time against the Gators.

Both teams scored one run in the second inning. UF's Jeff Corsaletti doubled and scored on a groundout by Brian Rose. For FSU, Richie Smith walked and came around to score on Blair McCaleb's double.

The Gators would stretch their lead to 4-1 with three runs over the next three innings. A solo home run by Mark Kiger in the third inning and a two-run shot by Matt Goss gave UF a three-run lead after five innings of play.

Tony Richie helped Florida State get back some of the momentum with a two-run homer to right field, his third of the year, in the bottom of the sixth.

Trailing 4-3, FSU took control with six runs in the seventh inning. Ryan Barthelemy tied the score with a bases loaded sacrifice fly to center. After Richie was hit by a pitch to load the bases again, Mike Futrell scored from third on a wild pitch to give the Seminoles their first lead of the game at 5-4. Brown's triple to center plated three more runs and Scott Toole made it 9-4 when he knocked in Brown with a double down the third base line.

FSU starter Robby Read allowed four runs on six hits over six innings. He struck out five and walked one. UF reliever Kevin Coleman (0-1) took the loss after giving up three runs in 2/3 of an inning. Gator starter Keith Ramsey allowed four runs on four hits in six innings.

Richie was 1-for-1 on the day for the Tribe with three runs scored (two walks and one hit by pitch). Futrell was the only Seminole with more than one hit (2-for-5).

Florida State returns to action on Friday with a weekend series against Pittsburgh. Game times at Dick Howser Stadium are set for 6:00 p.m. on Friday, 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 1 Florida State (18-4) handed the Pittsburgh Panthers (10-1-1) their first loss of the season by a score of 7-2 in front of 2,230 fans at Dick Howser Stadium. Senior All-American Ryan Barthelemy led the way for the Tribe, knocking in four runs with a double and a home run. Junior left-hander Matt Lynch (5-0) had another impressive outing, allowing just one run on four hits in seven innings of work. Lynch struck out a season-high nine and walked just one.

The Panthers got on the scoreboard first in the top of the first inning on a solo home run by Brad Rea.

FSU wasted no time in answering Pittsburgh's score, putting up three runs in the bottom of the first. After Jerrod Brown singled and Nick Rogers drew a walk, Barthelemy blasted his second home run of the season over the right field fence to make it 3-1.

The Seminoles added another run in the third inning when Brown walked, advanced to third on a single by Rogers, and scored on a sacrifice fly by Barthelemy.

In the bottom of the sixth, Florida State scored three more to increase the lead to 7-1. Rogers led off with a single and Barthelemy doubled to put runners on second and third for Tony Richie, who knocked both of them in with a double down the left line. Kevin Richmond plated Richie with a double off the screen in right center.

Pittsburgh got one run off FSU reliever Daniel Hodges in the top of the ninth when P.J. Hiser grounded out to score Rea.

Rogers (3-for-3), Barthelemy (2-for-4) and Richie (2-for-4) led the Seminoles at the plate with multi-hit games.

Pittsburgh starter Joe Engel (3-1) took the loss, giving up seven runs on nine hits in five innings.

Justin Miller worked a scoreless eighth for the Tribe.

FSU sophomore Tony McQuade saw action as a pinch-hitter, his first appearance since an injury sidelined him on February 16th.

The two teams meet again Saturday with FSU RHP Robby Read (3-0, 3.44 ERA) scheduled to face Pittsburgh RHP Scott Schultz (2-0, 0.00 ERA). Game time is 6:00 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The top-ranked Florida State Seminoles (19-4) extended their winning streak to seven games with an 11-2 victory over Pittsburgh (10-2-1) in front of 2,912 fans at Dick Howser Stadium Saturday evening. Ryan Barthelemy, who had a home run and four RBI Friday night, continued his tear at the plate with his second home run in as many days and three more RBI. FSU right-hander Robby Read (4-0) tied his career-high with eight strikeouts, earning the win after allowing just two runs in six innings of work.

As they did Friday night, the Panthers scored first with a run in the top of the first inning. Michael Bell singled moved to second on a sacrifice bunt before scoring on a base hit by Rolando Bello.

The Seminoles broke it wide open with eight runs in the bottom of the second inning. FSU sent 12 batters to the plate, recording 12 hits and taking advantage of three Panther errors. Nick Rogers and Barthelemy knocked in two runs apiece in the inning.

Florida State added two more in the third inning to stretch the lead to 10-1. Kevin Richmond doubled, took third on a single by Bryan Zech, and scored on a sacrifice fly by Scott Toole. Zech scored the second run on a balk by Pitt reliever Eric Ackerman.

The Panthers scored one more in the fifth when Scott Folmar singled, stole second, and scored on a base hit by Bryan Spamer.

Barthelemy made it 11-2 in the eighth with a solo home run over the right field fence, his third of the season.

Chris Whidden, Kevin Lynch and Eric Roman each worked a scoreless inning of relief for the Tribe and did not allow a single Pittsburgh hit.

Eight of the nine FSU starters had a hit with Zech and Richie Smith joining Barthelemy with two hits each.

Pittsburgh starter Scott Schultz (2-1) took the loss after giving up 10 runs (eight earned) in just two innings of action. Schultz had not given up a run in 15 innings prior to Saturday's start. Ackerman took over in the third and gave up just one run in six innings.

The two teams complete the three-game series on Sunday with FSU RHP Blair Varnes (2-2, 4.35 ERA) scheduled to face Pittsburgh RHP Don Rhoten (2-0, 0.64 ERA). Game time is 1:00 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium.

FLORIDA STATE 15, PITTSBURGH 3

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Senior outfielder Richie Smith had a career day Sunday afternoon as he led No. 1 Florida State (20-4) to a 15-3 victory over Pittsburgh (10-3-1) in front of 2,266 fans at Dick Howser Stadium. Smith recorded a career-high seven RBI with a grand slam in the third inning and a three-run homer in the seventh inning. The Seminoles extended their winning streak to eight games and have now won 14 of their last 15 contests.

FSU took a 1-0 lead after one inning of play when Smith scored on a sacrifice fly by Tony Richie.

Just as they did Saturday, the Seminoles used an eight-run inning to take control of the game. With two outs, Nick Rogers and Ryan Barthelemy started the rally with back-to-back doubles. Richie then plated Barthelemy with an RBI-single. After a walk to Blair McCaleb, Kevin Richmond picked up an RBI with a base hit to left. Bryan Zech's single scored McCaleb and Scott Toole followed with a walk to load the bases. Smith capped the scoring in the eight-run third with a grand slam over the right field fence.

Down 9-0, Pittsburgh got two back in the fourth when Rolando Bello hit a two-run homer to right.

Barthelemy knocked in his second run of the game in the fifth inning and McCaleb added a sacrifice fly to extend the lead back to nine runs at 11-2.

Rogers pushed the lead to 10 with an RBI-single to center in the bottom of the sixth.

The Panthers scored one more in the top of the seventh and FSU scored three in the bottom half of the seventh for the final margin of 15-3.

Blair Varnes (3-2) earned the win for Florida State, giving up two runs on four hits in six innings of work. Varnes struck out a season-high seven and walked just one.

Pitt starter Don Rhoten (2-1) took the loss after surrendering eight runs on six hits in 2.2 innings. Rhoten walked four and struck out one.

Rogers (3-for-4), Barthelemy (2-for-6) and Richie (2-for-3) joined Smith in the multi-hit category for the Tribe.

Florida State will return to action on Tuesday for a two-game series with Appalachian State. The game time is set for 6:00 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium. The two teams will face each other again Wednesday at 3:30 p.m.

VIRGINIA 11, FLORIDA STATE 10
03/15/2002, CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - Top-ranked Florida State (22-5, 0-1 ACC) dropped its first conference game of the season 11-10 to Virginia (12-7, 1-0 ACC) on Friday afternoon at UVA Baseball Field. After FSU scored six runs in the top of the eighth inning to take a 10-8 lead, the Cavaliers rallied for three in the bottom of the ninth to take the victory. The loss snapped Florida State's 10-game winning streak.

"Virginia showed a lot of poise in coming back to score three runs in the ninth," said FSU head coach Mike Martin. "It was a very disappointing loss. I was impressed with the way our club fought back to take the lead. It's one of those losses you just want to get over with and move on."

With the score tied at 3-3 after three innings of play, Virginia opened up an 8-4 lead with two runs in the fourth, one run in the fifth and two more runs in the sixth.

Ryan Barthelemy and Tony Richie got the six-run eighth going for the Tribe with back-to-back singles to start the inning. Jerrod Brown then knocked in Barthelemy with a base hit to center. Richie and Brown moved to second and third on a wild pitch before Mike Futrell plated them both with a double down the left field line to cut the Virginia lead to 8-7. After a Tony McQuade single, Blair McCaleb made it 10-8 with his second home run of the season - a three-run shot to left center.

Matt Street drew a walk from FSU closer Eric Roman to lead off the bottom of the ninth inning. Mark Reynolds dropped a bloop single into center field to bring the winning run to the plate. After both runners moved up a base on a wild pitch, Dan Street made it 10-9 with a sacrifice fly to right. With Reynolds now on third base, Joe Koshansky followed with an RBI-single to tie the game. After singles by Chris Sweet and Shawn McCleary loaded the bases, FSU got the second out of the inning when shortstop Jeff Probst threw out Koshansky at home. Kyle Werman, the ninth hitter in the order, came through with the two-out, game-winning hit. Werman's single to right center scored Sweet to give UVA the 11-10 victory.

Roman (0-2) took the loss after giving up three runs on five hits in the ninth. Virginia's Alan Zimmerer (1-0) was the winner after working a scoreless top of the ninth. FSU starter Matt Lynch allowed six runs on nine hits in 4.1 innings.

Barthelemy (3-for-5, HR) and Tony McQuade (4-for-5, triple) led the Seminoles offensively.

The two teams will complete the series Saturday with a 12:00 noon doubleheader. Both games will be carried live by Sunshine Network. The Mike Martin show will precede the doubleheader at 11:30 a.m. on Sunshine.

CHARLOTTESVILLE, VA - The University of Virginia baseball team dropped a pair of games in an Atlantic Coast Conference doubleheader to the #1 ranked Florida State Seminoles in front of 734 spectators this afternoon at the UVa Baseball Stadium. Florida State won the first game 8-3 before claiming a 14-4 victory in the second contest to win the three-game weekend series, two games to one. UVa defeated FSU by the score of 11-10 in the first game of the series on Friday, March 15th.

In the first game of the doubleheader, Virginia jumped out to an early 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning when Dan Street singled to left field and scored a run in the Cavaliers' next at-bat when Robert Word blasted a two-run home run to deep right-center field. UVa held on to its two-run lead through four complete innings of play until the Seminoles responded in the top of the fifth inning with five runs of their own.

After Michael Futrell and Bryan Zech each singled and scored a run to tie the game at 2-2, Ryan Barthelemy belted a three-run home run to deep right-center field to give Florida State its first lead of the game at 5-2. FSU added two more runs in the top of the sixth inning when Jerrod Brown (walk) and Zech (single) each scored a run to push the Seminoles lead to 7-2.

The Cavaliers cut FSU's lead to 7-3 in the bottom of the sixth inning when D. Street walked and scored a run two batters later when Word drove him in with a RBI-double to right-center field. But Florida State added a run in the top of the ninth inning when Nick Rogers singled and stole second base before he scored a run when Barthelemy hit a RBI-single to shallow center field to make it an 8-3 Seminole lead. FSU would hold on for the five-run win.

Virginia's Jeff Kamrath (3-1) suffered his first loss of the season after going 4.1 innings and surrendering four runs on five hits to go along with three strikeouts. Florida State's Robby Read (5-0) earned the victory after going seven innings and allowing three runs on five hits to add with his game-high seven strikeouts. FSU's Daniel Hodges picked up his second save of the season after going two innings and allowed just one hit with three strikeouts.

In game two, Florida State took an early 1-0 in the top of the first inning when Tony McQuade walked before scoring later in the inning on a wild pitch. But UVa answered right back with a run of its own when Matt Street singled and scored in the Cavaliers' next at-bat when his brother, Dan, drove him in with a RBI-double down the right field line to knot the score at 1-1.

The Seminoles regained the lead in the top of the third inning for good when Zech singled and scored from first base on a RBI-double down the right field line by McQuade to make it a 2-1 contest. FSU held its one-run lead until the top of the fifth inning when it exploded for 10 runs in the inning, highlighted by Rogers' two-run RBI-double. Florida State's 10 runs were recorded with seven hits and two Cavalier errors in the inning. The Seminoles added two more runs in the top of the ninth inning when Rogers reached first base on a fielders choice before Barthelemy drove him in with a triple, before Barthelemy scored a run himself one batter later when Chris Hart turned in a RBI-ground out.

UVa added three runs to its total in the bottom of the ninth inning when D. Street scored a run on a RBI-single through the left side by Chris Sweet before Sweet and Word each scored a run on an error by FSU's Futrell when he dropped a fly ball hit to left field. Virginia's three runs made the final score 14-4.

UVa starting pitcher Ty Collins (0-1) took the loss after going just three innings and allowing two runs on three hits with a team-high three strikeouts. FSU's Blair Varnes (4-2) earned the win after pitching seven strong innings and gave up just one run on five hits to add to his game-high five strikeouts.

With the two losses, Virginia's record falls to 12-9 overall, 1-2 in the ACC. The two victories improve Florida State's record to 24-5 overall, 2-1 in the conference.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Top-ranked Florida State (25-5) used a solid pitching performance by starter Marc LaMacchia to defeat The Citadel (11-8) by a score of 4-0 in front of 1,866 fans at Dick Howser Stadium Tuesday evening. LaMacchia, who didn't get any support from a Seminole infield that committed four errors behind him, worked seven scoreless innings. He gave up just three hits and tied a season-high with seven strikeouts. Trent Peterson pitched two no-hit innings of relief to give the FSU pitching staff its third shutout of the season.

Florida State got the only run they would need in the bottom of the second thanks to an error and a balk by the visitors. Tony McQuade doubled to left center with two outs, advanced to third on the balk, and came home on throwing error by Bulldog second baseman Jon Aughey.

The Seminoles gave LaMacchia a pair of insurance runs in the fifth inning. Richie Smith led off with a solo homer to right, his third of the season. Bryan Zech scored on a wild pitch later in the inning to make it 3-0.

FSU would add one more run in the seventh when Nick Rogers singled to left, moved to third on Ryan Barthelemy's base hit to center, and scored on Tony Richie's RBI-single to left.

Barthelemy went 2-for-4 with a double to extend his hitting streak to 12 games. Rogers (2-for-4, double) joined Barthelemy as the only other Seminole with more than one hit.

Paul Williams took the loss for The Citadel after surrendering three runs (two earned) on five hits in four innings. Relievers Matt Hamer and Randy Corn gave up just one run in a combined four innings.

The teams will complete the two-game series on Wednesday at Dick Howser Stadium. First pitch is scheduled for 3:30 p.m. with FSU's Daniel Davidson (1-0) set to face The Citadel's Shannon Sprouse (0-1).

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Top-ranked Florida State (26-5) used twelve hits to defeat The Citadel (11-9) by a score of 11-3 in front of 1,280 fans at Dick Howser Stadium on Wednesday. Jerrod Brown went 3-for-3 with one run scored and tied a career-high with four RBI. Left-hander Daniel Davidson (2-0) picked up his second win of the season, going five innings and giving up only two runs on six hits. The Seminole bullpen continued to pitch well, only giving up one run in the remaining three innings. Ryan Barthelemy extended his team-best hitting streak to 13 games.

The Citadel got on the board first with two runs in the top of the first inning when Brook Dantzler led off with a double down the right field line and later scored on an RBI-single to center by Chip Cannon. Cannon went on to score the second run of the inning when Michael Mainor was hit by a pitch followed with an RBI-single by Jon Aughey.

The Seminoles evened it up in the bottom of the first with two runs of their own. Bryan Zech scored the first run after he led off with a double down the left field line and scored on a Brown RBI-single to center. Brown scored the second run on a sacrifice fly by Barthelemy.

Florida State pushed the lead to 5-2 with three runs in the second. Tony McQuade led off with a double to right center and later scored on a bases loaded walk to Scott Toole. Brown's two-RBI single to left scored Mike Futrell and Richie Smith for the final two runs of the inning.

The Bulldogs added an additional run in the top of the sixth to cut the lead to three, but that would be as close as they could get. Blair McCaleb had the big hit in the five-run sixth, a bases loaded single that scored two.

The Seminoles added one run in the fourth and five runs in the bottom of the sixth to make the final score of 11-3.

Shannon Sprouse (0-2) took the loss for The Citadel, giving up five runs on five hits, while only striking out two Seminole batters.

Mike Futrell (2-for-3) and Brown (3-for-3) were the only Seminoles with multi-hits on the day.

The Seminoles travel to North Carolina this weekend for a three-game series with the Tar Heels. Game times are set for Friday at 3:30, Saturday at 1:00 and Sunday at 12:00 noon. Matt Lynch (5-0, 3.40 ERA), Robby Read (5-0, 3.45 ERA) and Blair Varnes (4-2, 3.48 ERA) are expected to start on the mound for FSU in the weekend series.

NORTH CAROLINA 11, FLORIDA STATE 7
03/22/2002, CHAPEL HILL, NC
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - No. 1 Florida State (26-6, 2-2 ACC) dropped their second conference game of the season 11-7 to North Carolina (13-8, 4-0 ACC) on Friday afternoon at Cary C. Boshamer Stadium in Chapel Hill, NC. Senior All-American Ryan Barthelemy extended his team best 14-game hitting streak, with a home run, in the loss. Junior left-hander Matt Lynch (5-0) allowed four runs (three earned), on five hits and only struck out one in six innings of work. The Florida State bullpen allowing seven more runs along with four Seminole errors proved to be too much to overcome to defeat the Tar Heels.

"It is very disappointing when you give up nine runs in the seventh inning," said FSU head coach Mike Martin. "You have to give credit to UNC though for taking advantage of good at bats and capitalizing on out mistakes."

The Tar Heels got one run in each of the first two innings to take an early 2-0 lead courtesy of three Seminole errors in the first inning. Chris Ionnetta's home run to left field in the bottom of the second added the second run for North Carolina.

Florida State finally got on the board in the top of the fourth when Barthelemy hit a solo shot to deep right field. This was Bartelemy's eighth home run of the season.

The Seminoles added four runs in the fifth inning to take their first lead of the game. Jerrod Brown continued his hot streak with a two-RBI single to right field scoring Richie Smith and Scott Toole. After Barthelemy was walked to load the bases, Tony Richie hit a sacrifice fly to right, scoring Probst. Tony McQuade followed with his eighth double of the season to plate Brown and the Seminoles were up 5-2.

FSU added two more runs in the sixth to take a five run lead at 7-2. Richie Smith scored his second run of the game when Probst hit an RBI-single into right. Nick Rogers doubled down the left line to score Probst from second.

North Carolina put together a nine run seventh inning behind three home runs including a grand slam to make the final score of 11-7.

McQuade (2-for-5) and Brown (2-for-4) led the Seminoles with two hits apiece.

The two teams meet again Saturday in Chapel Hill with FSU RHP Robby Read (5-0, 3.45 ERA) scheduled to face North Carolina RHP Garry Bakker (1-1, 3.47 ERA). Game time is 1:00 p.m. at Cary C. Boshamer Stadium. Sunday's game is scheduled for a 12:00 p.m. noon start.

NORTH CAROLINA 7, FLORIDA STATE 1
03/23/2002, CHAPEL HILL, NC
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - No. 1 Florida State (26-7. 2-3 ACC) lost their second straight game to North Carolina (14-8, 5-0 ACC) by a score of 7-1 as 1,485 fans looked on at Cary C. Boshamer Stadium in Chapel Hill, NC. Right-hander Robby Read (5-1) took his first loss of the season allowing six runs (five earned) on eight hits and striking out three in five innings of work. Ryan Barthelemy kept his team best 15-game hitting streak alive with an RBI-double in the first inning.

The Seminoles scored their only run of the game when Mike Futrell drew a leadoff walk in the first and scored on a double by Barthelemy for a quick 1-0 lead. FSU really never seemed to get it going after that due to strong pitching from the Carolina staff.

The Tar Heels Chris Iannetta had an RBI single to tie the game 1-1 in the second inning and Carolina got three in the third for a 4-1 lead. Russ Adams doubled to the gap in right and scored on a Sean Farrell single, while Chris Maples added a two-run double for the three-run advantage.

Maples hit a two-run home run in the fifth, which pushed the score to 6-1. Maples, who had two homers in Carolina's nine-run seventh inning on Friday, has hit five of his team-high nine home runs in the last five games and seven in the last eight games. Sean Farrell led off the seventh with a home run to left field to give UNC its final run of the game.

Maples moved to the mound from third base and pitched a scoreless ninth to close the game for Carolina. Maples walked two batters and allowed a single to load the bases, but he struck out Futrell to end the game.

The two teams will close out the series on Sunday. Sunday's first pitch has been moved to 11:30 a.m. to accommodate Florida State's travel plans. FSU Right-hander Blair Varnes (4-2, 3.48 ERA) is scheduled to start the final game of the series on Sunday.

NORTH CAROLINA 9, FLORIDA STATE 1
03/24/2002, CHAPEL HILL, NC
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

CHAPEL HILL, NC - North Carolina completed its first ever three-game baseball sweep of Florida State, winning Sunday's series-finale 9-1 at Boshamer Stadium. The top-ranked Seminoles had been swept just three times - all at Clemson - since joining the ACC in 1992 before this weekend. Carolina (15-8) has won nine straight and is 6-0 in the ACC for the first time since 1990, its last year winning the conference title.

Carolina's strong starting pitching continued Sunday with sophomore lefty Daniel Moore (3-0) scattering five hits and allowing just one unearned run in seven innings. Behind Moore, the Tar Heels turned pivotal double plays in the first, sixth and eighth innings.

Adam Greenberg and Russ Adams led off the bottom of the first with a pair of singles. Adams stole second and Greenberg raced home on the play and beat a throw from FSU second baseman Bryan Zech to score UNC's first run. Chris Maples drew a bases-loaded walk for a 2-0 UNC lead and Sean Farrell scored on a ground out by Ron Braun to cap the first inning scoring. Mell Adams extended UNC's lead to 4-0 with a solo homer to right-center field in the second.

FSU starter Blair Varnes (4-3) settled down and allowed just a pair of doubles over the next four innings while retiring 12 of 14 batters to keep FSU within striking distance.

The Seminoles ended a 14-inning drought against the Tar Heels, dating back to the second inning of Saturday's 7-1 loss, with an unearned run in the seventh. With two out in the inning, Scott Toole hit a dribbler down the third base line that Moore fielded but threw away, allowing Toole to get to second. Moore balked Toole to third and a passed ball by catcher Chris Iannetta allowed him to score. With two runners on and FSU threatening for more, Carolina got out of the inning when Mell Adams raced down a fly to right by Tony McQuade.

The Tar Heels blew the three-run game open with five runs in the eighth on six hits. Ryan Blake and Iannetta had RBI singles, Maples an RBI double and Chad Prosser hit a two-run triple to highlight the inning for UNC.

Ryan Blake and Mell Adams were both 3-for-4 in the 9-1 win, while Maples was 1-for-3 with two RBIs and finished the series 6-for-11 with 11 RBIs and three home runs.

FLORIDA STATE 11, MERCER 2
03/26/2002, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Sophomore right-hander Marc LaMacchia threw six strong innings and freshman Stephen Drew returned to the lineup for the first time since February 1st as No. 5 Florida State (27-8) defeated Mercer (13-13) by a score of 11-2 at Dick Howser Stadium. LaMacchia ran his record to 5-0 with the victory, giving up two runs (one earned) on three hits in six innings. Drew, who fractured the fifth metatarsal in his left foot at Hawaii 28 games ago, led off the game as the Seminole designated hitter and went 1-for-4 with a three-run double.

Mercer took an early 1-0 lead in the top of the second inning on a solo home run to right by Drew Starke.

The Seminoles took control in the bottom half of the inning with a six-run rally. Tony McQuade scored the first run when Scott Toole was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. Drew cleared the bases with a double to the gap in right center. Mike Futrell followed with a doubled down the third base line to score Drew. After Futrell advanced to third on a wild pitch, Ryan Barthlemey came through with a RBI-groundout.

After Bryan Zech's sacrifice fly scored Tony Richie in the bottom of the third inning, Mercer took advantage of an FSU error to score a run in the fourth to make the score 6-2.

Florida State added single runs in the fifth and sixth to increase the lead to 8-2. Toole knocked in the run in the fifth on a bunt base hit and McQuade had an RBI-double in the sixth.

Barthelemy's two-run single in the eighth inning concluded the scoring and gave the Tribe an 11-2 victory.

Mercer starter Byron Kiefer (1-1) took the loss after giving up four runs on no hits in 1.1 innings. Kiefer walked four and hit two batters.

The Seminoles travel to Wake Forest this weekend for a three-game series with the Demon Deacons. Game times are set for Friday at 1:30, Saturday at 1:00 and Sunday at 12:00 noon. Matt Lynch (5-0, 3.53 ERA), Robby Read (5-1, 3.98 ERA) and Blair Varnes (4-3, 3.86 ERA) will start on the mound for FSU in the weekend series.

WAKE FOREST 5, FLORIDA STATE 3
03/29/2002, WINSTON-SALEM, NC
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - No. 5 Florida State (27-9, 2-5 ACC) dropped a 5-3 contest to No. 9 Wake Forest (21-4, 5-1 ACC) in front of a capacity crowd of 2,750 at Hooks Stadium Friday afternoon. The loss was the fourth straight in conference play, which ties the longest conference losing streak since the Seminoles joined the ACC in 1992. Wake Forest starter Kyle Sleeth (5-0) got the win after giving up three runs on five hits in seven innings. Closer Dave Bush struck out two in a scoreless ninth to pick up his sixth save.

"Wake Forest was the better ball club today," said head coach Mike Martin. "Sleeth pitched a great game and put them in position to win. We will have to come out tomorrow and keep battling."

Wake got on the scoreboard first with an unearned run in the bottom of the second inning. With two outs and Stephen Ghutzman on second, Ben Ingold hit a groundball up the middle. FSU second baseman Bryan Zech made a diving stop, but threw the ball away to allow Ghutzman to score.

The visiting Seminoles took the lead with a pair of runs in the top of the fourth. Tony McQuade walked and Mike Futrell was hit by a pitch to put runners on first and second. After Tony Richie's grounded into a fielder's choice, Zech and Blair McCaleb followed with back-to-back RBI-singles.

The Demon Deacons answered with three runs in the bottom half of the inning. Jeff Ruziecki doubled home Ghutzman and Ryder Mathis hit a two-run home run, the first of his career, to put Wake Forest up 4-2.

Wake added one more in the fifth on a run-scoring single by Jamie D'Antona and FSU got a solo home run from Jerrod Brown to complete the scoring.

Seminole freshman Stephen Drew made his first start in the field since fracturing his left foot at Hawaii on February 1st and went 0-for-3 on the day with four assists and one putout.

Matt Lynch (5-1) took the loss for the Tribe after allowing five runs (four earned) on six hits in 5.1 innings. Daniel Hodges pitched the final 2.2 innings and did not give up a run on two hits.

Saturday's game is scheduled to start at 1:00 p.m. and will be televised on Fox Sports South as the ACC Game of the Week. FSU right-hander Robby Read (5-1, 3.98 ERA) is scheduled to start against WFU left-hander Tim Morley (2-1, 3.07 ERA).

FLORIDA STATE 18, WAKE FOREST 10
03/30/2002, WINSTON-SALEM, NC
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - No. 5 Florida State (28-9, 3-5 ACC) snapped a four-game ACC losing streak with an 18-10 victory over No. 9 Wake Forest (21-5, 5-2 ACC) in front of 2,121 at Hooks Stadium Saturday afternoon. FSU's 18 runs and 21 hits were both season-highs. Ryan Barthelemy established a new career-high with five hits and tied a career-high with six RBI. He scored five runs and hit his ninth home run of the season in the game.

"I'm very proud of the way this team came out and played today," said head coach Mike Martin. "This is a veteran ball club and we (coaching staff) wanted them to know we still had confidence in them. Baseball is a journey with lots of ups and downs. Ryan Barthelemy did a great job, he is our leader and knows how to play the game."

Florida State took the early lead with a pair of runs in the top of the first inning. With two outs, Nick Rogers tripled off the wall in center and scored on Barthelemy's base hit. A Blair McCaleb single put runners on the corners and Barthelemy scored when McCaleb intentionally got caught in a rundown.

Wake cut the lead in half with an unearned run in the bottom of the first. Nick Blue reached on a two-base error by FSU second baseman Bryan Zech and scored on a RBI-single by Steve LeFaivre.

Tony Richie put the Seminoles up 3-1 with his fourth homer of the season, a solo shot to left in the second inning.

The Seminole scoring continued in the third with a five-spot to take an 8-1 lead. Zech led of with a walk and scored on a double down the left field line by Rogers. Barthelemy knocked in Rogers with a single to right. McCaleb walked and Mike Futrell then plated Barthelemy with a double to the wall in right. With runners on second and third, Tony Richie doubled to score McCaleb, but Futrell was thrown out at the plate. Chris Hart's sinlge up the middle scored Richie and gave FSU a seven run lead.

FSU added two runs in both the fourth and fifth to make it 12-1 Stephen Drew led off the fourth with a solo home run and Tony McQuade plated Barthelemy with a single up the middle. Barthelemy knocked in his third and fourth runs of the game with a single in the fifth inning.

The Demon Deacons trimmed FSU's lead to 12-7 on Ryan Johnson's grand slam and Ryan Braun's two-run homer in the bottom of the fifth.

McQuade's two-run triple highlighted a three-run seventh inning for the Tribe that extended the lead to 15-7 and Barthelemy's two-run homer in the eighth made it 17-7.

WFU put three runs on the board over the final two innings and FSU got one in the ninth for the final of 18-10.

Daniel Davidson (3-0) got the win in relief of starter Robby Read. Davidson allowed two runs on six hits in 3.2 innings of work. Read gave up six runs (five earned) on four hits in 4.1 innings. Wake starter Tim Morley (2-2) took the loss after giving up five runs on seven hits in two innings of work.

WAKE FOREST 7, FLORIDA STATE 5
03/31/2002, WINSTON-SALEM, NC
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

WINSTON-SALEM, NC - Stephen Ghutzman's two-run, pinch hit home run in the bottom of the ninth inning gave 8th-ranked Wake Forest a thrilling 7-5 victory over visiting Florida State on a rainy, windy Sunday afternoon at Hooks Stadium.

With the win, Wake Forest captured the weekend series and improved to 22-5 overall, 6-2 in the ACC. Florida State slid to 28-10, 3-6 in the league.

Trailing virtually the entire game, the Deacons found themselves down 5-3 after seven innings with a light, but steady rain falling. Wake Forest rallied to tie the game in the eighth inning. Adam Bourassa, who celebrated his 21st birthday on Sunday, lined a two-run, two-out double scoring Ingold from third and Ryan Hubbard, who came all the way around from first.

Dave Bush, who came on with two outs in the eighth inning, pitched a 1-2-3 ninth inning with a strikeout. He earned credit for his third win of the season, improving his season record to 3-1 while making his 20th appearance of the season. He needs 20 more to become the NCAA's all-time leader in that category.

With one out in the ninth, Jamie D'Antona reached on a flare into right center field. The teams' head coaches played a chess match as Ryan Braun was sent up to pinch hit for Steve LeFaivre. After Daniel Hodges pitched a ball to Braun, the Seminoles brought Eric Roman out of the bullpen.

The Deacons countered with Stephen Ghutzman off the bench, pinch-hitting for Braun. Ghutzman clocked the first pitch he saw from Roman over the wall in right-center field, giving the Deacons the win. It was Ghutzman's first home run of the season and the only time all day that Wake Forest held a lead.

Brian Bach started and went 5.1 innings, allowing three earned runs. Seth Hill pitched 2.1 innings of scoreless relief before handing it over to Bush in the eighth.

Daniel Hodges (2-1) suffered the loss as the Seminoles dropped back-to-back ACC series for the first time since 1995.

The Demon Deacons are now 12-1 in games decided by two runs or less. Wake Forest will head to the Gate City on Tuesday to play UNC Greensboro at 6:00 p.m.

FLORIDA STATE 13, MIAMI 3
04/05/2002, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No. 10 Florida State Seminoles (29-10) belted five home runs as they defeated Miami (17-14) in the first game of the six-game series by a score of 13-3 in front of 4,785 fans at Dick Howser Stadium. Senior Richie Smith led the home run barrage with two on the night and Ryan Barthelemy, Jerrod Brown and Stephen Drew added one apiece. The five round-trippers were the most in a game since FSU hit nine at Maryland on May 9, 1999. Seminoles starter Matt Lynch (6-1) was the winner after allowing three runs on seven hits in seven innings of work.

The Hurricanes scored the first run of the game in the top of the first when Kevin Howard reached on a fielder's choice and then later scored from second on a throwing error by Bryan Zech.

Florida State answered with a run in the bottom half of the first when Ryan Barthelemy's double to left center scored Stephen Drew.

The Seminoles added three more runs in the second when Drew hit a three-run homer, his third of the year, over the light post in right center field to make the score 4-1.

In the bottom of the third, FSU increased its lead to 7-1 after a pair of home runs. Brown launched a two-run shot to right and Smith hammered a solo homer to right center.

Miami closed the gap with two runs in the fourth. Matt Barket led off the inning with a walk, moved to third on a double by Matt Dryer and scored on a fielder's choice bunt by Danny Figueroa. Dryer scored the second run of the inning on a groundout by Brad Safchik.

Barthelemy's 10th home run of the season, a solo blast to right center, made it 8-3 after four innings of play.

The Seminoles kept the scoring going with three more in the fifth inning. With the bases loaded, Bryan Zech had an RBI-single, Nick Rogers was hit by a pitch and Tony McQuade was also hit by a pitch to push the lead to 11-3.

FSU, which scored at least one run in each of the first six innings, got two more in the sixth for the final margin of 13-3. Smith's second home run of the game, which came with Tony Richie on after a single, completed the scoring.

Drew (2-for-4), Barthelemy (2-for-5), Richie (2-for-4) and Smith (3-for-3) all had multi-hit games for the Tribe.

Lynch struck out five and walked two to earn his first win since March 8. Justin Miller worked two scoreless innings of relief and game up just one hit.

UM starter T.J. Prunty (4-2) took the loss after giving up seven runs on five hits in 2.2 innings.

The two teams meet again Saturday at 7:00 p.m. FSU RHP Robby Read (5-1) is scheduled to face UM RHP Dan Touchet (2-1) at Dick Howser Stadium. The remaining two games of the series in Tallahassee will be televised live by Sunshine.

MIAMI 5, FLORIDA STATE 2
04/06/2002, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Behind a strong start from right-hander Dan Touchet, the Miami Hurricanes (18-14) defeated No. 10 Florida State (29-11) by a score of 5-2 in front of 4,812 fans at Dick Howser Stadium. Touchet (3-1) worked 7.2 innings and gave up just two earned runs on six hits. He struck out six and walked just two. Closer George Huguet worked a scoreless ninth to earn his sixth save. The loss snapped FSU's 19-game home winning streak.

The Hurricanes scored first with one run when Brad Safchik walked, stole second, moved to third on a sacrifice bunt and came around to score on a passed ball by Tony Richie.

Florida State answered with two runs in the bottom half of the first. After back-to-back singles by Stephen Drew and Bryan Zech, Ryan Barthelemy followed with an RBI-single to right. Tony McQuade plated Zech with a base hit to center to give FSU a 2-1 lead.

The Hurricanes tied the game at two in the fourth when Matt Dryer was hit by a Robby Read pitch, advanced to second on a wild pitch and scored on an RBI-single to left field by Danny Figueroa.

Miami took the lead for good with an unearned run in the sixth inning. After singles by Danny Figueroa and Paco Figueroa, Safchik grounded into what looked to be a 4-6-3 double play. FSU first baseman Jerrod Brown couldn't handle the throw and Danny Figueroa scored from third when the ball got away.

UM put up single runs in the eighth and ninth to take the 5-2 victory. Danny Figueroa doubled home Matt Dryer in the eighth and Kevin Howard scored on an error in the ninth after doubling down the first base line.

Marc LaMacchia (5-1) took the loss in relief after giving up three runs (one earned) on six hits in five innings. LaMacchia struck out six and walked two. FSU starter Robby Read allowed just two runs (one earned) on two hits in 3.1 innings, but walked five and hit a batter.

The two teams will close out the Tallahassee portion of the series in on Sunday at 1:30 p.m. FSU right-hander Blair Varnes (4-3, 4.03 ERA) is scheduled to face UM right-hander Kiki Bengochea (2-4, 6.21 ERA). The game will be televised live by Sunshine.

FLORIDA STATE 9, MIAMI 7

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Seminole shortstop Stephen Drew drove a 1-0 pitch over the right field fence to give No. 10 Florida State (30-11) a 9-7 victory over Miami (18-15) in 13 innings as 4,096 fans looked on at Dick Howser Stadium Sunday afternoon. After the Hurricanes took a 7-6 lead on Drew's fielding error in the top of the 13th, Jeff Probst and Kevin Richmond both drew walks with one out in the bottom of the inning. Drew then launched his fourth home run of the season over the right field fence to give FSU the win.

For the first time in the series, the Seminoles got on the board first and took a 2-0 lead in the first inning. Ryan Barthelemy knocked in Drew on a single to left center and Nick Rogers came around to score when Miami centerfielder Danny Figueroa made an errant throw to the plate.

Miami quickly took the lead in the top of the second. With the bases loaded and no outs, Brad Safchik hit his first career home run, a grand slam to left, to make it 4-2.

FSU cut the Hurricane lead to one in the bottom of the fourth when Richie Smith belted a 3-1 pitch over the left field wall, his sixth home run of the season.

Florida State regained the lead with two runs in the sixth. Barthelemy led off the inning with a double off the right field wall and Tony McQuade followed with a walk to put runners on first and second. After two quick outs, Chris Hart's double down the right field line scored Barthelemy and McQuade to give the Tribe the lead at 5-4.

UM came back to take the lead with a pair of runs in the top of the eighth. Kevin Mannix had an RBI-double and and Paco Figueroa made it 6-5 with an RBI-single to right.

The Seminoles forced extra innings with a run in the bottom of the ninth. Jerrod Brown and Kevin Richmond had pinch-hit singles and moved to second and third on a passed ball. After Drew was intentionally walked to load the bases, Blair McCaleb picked up the RBI with a walk. FSU couldn't get across another run with the bases still loaded and no outs after a strikeout and a double play.

In the top of the 13th, Haas Pratt doubled and moved to third on a sacrifice bunt. With the infield in, Drew couldn't handle Paco Figueroa's grounder and Pratt scored to make it 7-6.

Drew's three-run, walk-off homer in the 13th with one out gave the Seminoles the 9-7 win.

Daniel Davidson (4-0) got the win in relief after retiring the two UM batters in the top of the 13th. Hurricane reliever Vince Bongiovanni (0-3) took the loss after allowing three runs in 2.1 innings. Bongiovanni only allowed one hit, the three-run homer to Drew.

Left-hander Trent Peterson (1-2) will start Wednesday as Florida State hosts Jacksonville at 6:00 p.m. before traveling to Coral Gables to finish the six-game series with Miami. Game times are scheduled for 7:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1:00 p.m. on Sunday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Sophomore left-hander Trent Peterson (2-2) shut down Jacksonville (17-17) in leading No. 8 Florida State (31-11) to a 7-1victory in front of 1,221 fans at Dick Howser Stadium Wednesday evening. Peterson picked up his second win of the season after holding JU to one run on four hits in seven innings of work. Peterson, who struck out five and walked one, allowed a solo homer to Josh Johnson in the fourth that just stayed inside the foul pole in right field for the Dolphins only run.

FSU took the early lead with two runs in the second inning. Ryan Barthelemy led off with a double, moved to third on wild pitch, and scored on a single up the middle by Blair McCaleb. Tony McQuade followed with a single and Mike Futrell's sacrifice bunt made it second and third. Tony Richie's sacrifice fly to right scored McQuade to put the Tribe up 2-0.

The Dolphins got one run back in the fourth on Johnson's solo home run.

The Seminoles added single runs in the fifth and sixth to extend the lead to 4-1. Nick Rogers scored Stephen Drew with a sacrifice fly in the fifth and Richie knocked in McQuade with a two-out single in the sixth.

FSU put the game away with three more in the seventh. Drew hit his fifth homer of the season, a solo shot to right center, to make it 5-1. Kevin Richmond grounded out to score Rogers and Barthelemy came around to score on a wild pitch for the 7-1 final.

Justin Miller and Eric Roman each worked a scoreless inning of relief for the Seminoles. Miller struck out two in the eighth inning.

McQuade recorded three hits on the day for the Tribe while Drew, Barthelemy and Richie added two hits apiece. Richie, a Jacksonville native, had a game-best two RBI.

JU starter Kris Regas took the loss after giving up two runs on six hits in four innings. Regas struck out one and didn't walk a batter.

The Seminoles depart for Coral Gables on Thursday to finish the six-game series with Miami. Game times are scheduled for 7:00 p.m. Friday and Saturday and 1:00 p.m. on Sunday at Mark Light Stadium.

CORAL GABLES, FL - No. 8 Florida State (32-11) won the fourth game of a six-game series with Miami (18-16) by a score of 6-4 as 3,257 fans looked on at Mark Light Stadium Friday night. Junior Matt Lynch worked 6.1 innings and gave up four runs on six hits for the win while reliever Daniel Hodges held the Hurricanes scoreless over the final 2.2 innings to earn his third save. Stephen Drew's sacrifice fly in the top of the fourth proved to be the game-winning RBI.

Florida State got on the board first with three runs in the first. Bryan Zech got on after being hit by a pitch, moved to third on a throwing error by Miami centerfielder Danny Figueroa on Nick Rogers' single, and scored on a wild pitch. Tony McQuade got his second home run of the season, a two-run shot over the left field wall for the final two runs of the inning.

The Hurricanes answered with two runs of their own in the bottom of the first. Kevin Howard and Danny Matienzo each had RBI-singles to cut the lead to one.

FSU extended the lead to 4-2 when Stephen Drew doubled down the first base line to score Richie Smith from first.

The Seminoles added single runs in the fourth and fifth to take a four run lead. Drew scored Jerrod Brown on a sacrifice fly to center to make it 5-2 in the fourth. After getting his fourth stolen base of the season, Ryan Barthelemy scored the sixth run of the game when Blair McCaleb hit an RBI-double down the third base line to extend the FSU lead in the fifth.

Miami closed the gap with two runs in the seventh, but Hodges relieved Lynch and got the final two outs of the inning to end the Hurricane rally. Lynch struck out six and walked just one on the night. Hodges allowed three hits over 2.2 innings while striking out two and walking one.

UM starter Dan Touchet (3-2) took the loss after surrendering six runs (five earned) on seven hits in five innings of work.

The two teams will continue the six game series Saturday night at 7:00 at Mark Light Stadium. FSU senior right-hander Blair Varnes (4-3, 4.21 ERA) is scheduled to face Miami right-hander T.J. Prunty (4-2, 5.76). The game will be shown tape delay on Fox Sports at 10:00 p.m.

CORAL GABLES, FL - The No. 8 Florida State Seminoles (33-11) hit three home runs and got a strong pitching performance by Blair Varnes as they defeated Miami (18-17) by a score of 9-3 at Mark Light Stadium in Coral Gables Saturday night. Senior right-hander Blair Varnes allowed three runs on five hits in seven innings of work. Varnes struck out six and walked one as he improved to 5-3 on the year. Senior center fielder Nick Rogers went 2-for-4 with a home run and three RBI.

The Seminoles got the scoring started early with one run in the top of the first. Rogers was hit by a pitch and stole second before Ryan Barthelemy hit an RBI-double off the wall in right to bring in the run.

Miami tied the game up at one in the bottom of the fourth on a Danny Matienzo RBI-single to left that scored Danny Figueroa from second.

Back-to-back home runs in the fifth inning by Rogers and Barthelemy gave FSU a 4-1 advantage. Rogers launched a two-run shot over the left field wall with Bryan Zech on board after a single up the middle. Barthelemy followed with a first-pitch homer to right, his 11th of the year. The last time FSU hit back-to-back homers was on February 26th earlier this season against Western Carolina when Blair McCaleb and Bryan Zech accomplished the feat in Tallahassee.

FSU tacked on five more runs on the seventh to take control of the game at 9-1. McCaleb capped the scoring in the inning when he knocked in three with an inside-the-park home run.

Miami's Haas Pratt completed the scoring with a two-run homer in the bottom of the seventh.

Seminole reliever Daniel Davidson worked the final two innings without giving up a run or a hit. Davidson walked one and struck out one.

T.J. Prunty (4-3) took the loss for the Hurricanes after allowing four runs on seven hits in five innings.

The two teams will close out the six-game series Sunday at 1:00 at Mark Light Stadium. The Seminoles will attempt to sweep the three games at Miami for the first team since the two teams began the six-game series. FSU right-hander Marc LaMacchia (5-1, 1.80 ERA) will get his first weekend start of the year against Miami's Kiki Bengochea (2-4, 6.18 ERA). The game will be shown tape delay on Fox Sports at 10:00 p.m.

CORAL GABLES, FL - No. 8 Florida State (34-12) defeated Miami (18-18), 17-11, sweeping the three-game series in front of 2,396 fans Sunday afternoon at Mark Light Stadium.

Hurricane starter Kiki Bengochea (2-5) earned the loss going 4 1/3 innings, giving up seven hits, 10 runs (eight earned), three walks, two strikeouts and three hit batters. Seminole starter Marc LaMacchia (6-1) recorded the win, going 6 innings, giving up 12 hits, six earned runs, no walks, five strikeouts, one balk and a hit batter.

Florida State erased an early 1-0 Miami lead in the second scoring two runs on an error by the pitcher. Hurricane pitcher Kiki Bengochea gave up two consecutive singles, before botching a throw, allowing Tony McQuade and Blair McCaleb to score, giving the Seminoles a 2-1 lead.

The Hurricanes tied the game, 2-2, in the bottom half of the second on Paco Figueroa's solo homerun to left field. It was Figueroa's first career homerun as a Hurricane.

The Seminoles took a four-run lead, 6-2, in the third inning on a Jerrod Brown grand slam to left field and never looked back. Ryan Barthelemy reached first on a walk and advanced to second on an error by the second baseman. The Seminoles loaded the bases on a walk by McCaleb.

Miami cut the lead, 6-4, in the fourth inning on a two-RBI double by Brad Safchik, before Florida State opened the game in the fifth, 13-4. FSU scored seven runs, including its second grand slam of the day by Stephen Drew of off relief pitcher Luke DeBold.

Miami staged a late comeback scoring two runs in the fifth, four in the seventh and one in the ninth, highlighted by Javy Rodriguez' second homerun of the game. However, the Seminoles added four runs in the eighth sealing the win.

SOUTH ALABAMA 6, FLORIDA STATE 5

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Erik Smallwood's RBI-single to left in the top of the 10th inning gave visiting South Alabama (24-11) a 6-5 victory over No. 8 Florida State (34-12) Tuesday evening in front of 1,675 at Dick Howser Stadium. The Jaguars scored runs in the eighth and the ninth to erase a 5-3 FSU lead and force extra innings. Seminole starter Robby Read struck out a career-high 11 batters in 7.2 innings, the longest outing for an FSU pitcher this season, before leaving with the lead in the top of the eighth. The loss snapped a five-game FSU winning streak.

South Alabama got things going early when Josh Touchstone ripped a two-run double deep into left center to give the Jaguars an early 2-0 lead.

The Seminoles closed the gap to one as Ryan Barthelemy hit his 12th home run of the season, a solo shot over the fence in right to make it 2-1.

USA added an unearned run in the top of the third to make it 3-1 as Cole Craig scored from third on a throwing error by second baseman Bryan Zech.

Stephen Drew's RBI-single to center that scored Tony Richie from third in the fifth inning cut the South Alabama lead to 3-2.

Richie staked FSU to a 5-3 lead in the sixth inning when he belted a triple to right center with the bases load.

The Jaguars got one back in the eighth on a solo home run to left field by Ryan Mulhern and then tied the game in the top of the ninth on a sacrifice fly by pinch-hitter Buck Pettus.

In the top of the 10th, Ben Nelson singled and Josh Touchstone walked to put runners on first and second with one out. Daniel Davidson then relieved Kevin Lynch from the FSU bullpen and got an out on a fly ball to center before giving up the game-winning RBI to Smallwood.

USA starter Caleb Crosby allowed four runs (three earned) in 5.2 innings. Bert Heath earned the victory (5-2) after throwing two scoreless innings.

Richie led FSU at the plate with three hits and three RBI.

The Seminoles travel to Jacksonville on Wednesday for a 7:00 p.m. game against the Dolphins. Sophomore left-hander Trent Peterson (2-2, 2.76 ERA) is scheduled to get the start for the Tribe. FSU returns to ACC action this weekend with a three-game series against Georgia Tech. Game times are set for 7:00 p.m. Friday, and 1:00 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday at Dick Howser Stadium.

FLORIDA STATE 13, JACKSONVILLE 4
04/17/2002, JACKSONVILLE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

JACKSONVILLE, FL - Jacksonville hung around early but was done in by the big inning, dropping a 13-4 decision to eighth-ranked Florida State before a season-high crowd of 1,546 Wednesday night at Alexander Brest Field.

Senior centerfielder Chris Reier (Jacksonville, Fla.) led the way for the Dolphins, going 2-for-4 with a pair of RBI, while senior Chad Oliva (Palm Beach, Fla.), who made his first start of the season at third base, extended his hitting streak to five games by going 2-for-4. Junior shortstop Robby Cichra (Denton, Texas) went 2-for-3 with a double and a run scored.

Florida State sophomore left-hander Trent Peterson was not as dominant as he was a week ago when he held the Dolphins to just one run on four hits, but was effective enough to earn the win, allowing four runs on seven hits in six innings. Daniel Davidson held JU to one hit over three innings of relief.

JU starter Jason Ryals (Gainesville, Fla.) four runs, only two earned, on five hits in three innings of work. Ryals then gave way to Josh Deel (Jacksonville, Fla.), who allowed four earned runs, David Simpkins (Jacksonville, Fla.), who allowed two earned runs and D.J. Kaercher (Clearwater, Fla.), who allowed three runs, but only one earned. Patrick Sitkins (North Ft. Myers, Fla.) and Luke Wiegand (Glen St. Mary, Fla.) shut the Seminoles out in the ninth.

JU scored first on a balk by Peterson in the first, but FSU responded with four in the second, highlighted by a two-run homer by Tony Richie, who went 2-for-4 on the night with three RBI. After the Dolphins cut the lead to 4-3 in the fifth, the Seminoles exploded for six runs in the sixth, highlighted by a three-run double by Jerrod Brown.

The Dolphins (19-19) were victimized by five errors for the second-straight game, which led to four unearned runs. FSU (35-12) claimed the season series, 3-1, beating JU by the same score it lost by at Alexander Brest Field on Feb. 24.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - All nine Seminole starters had at least one hit as No. 8 Florida State (37-12, 5-6 ACC) won its second straight game over No. 5 Georgia Tech (32-7, 8-5 ACC) by a score of 14-9 at Dick Howser Stadium Saturday afternoon. The Seminoles scored 11 runs in their last three innings and improved their record to 9-4 against Top 10 teams. Nick Rogers went 2-for-5 with four RBI to lead FSU offensively.

Just as they did Friday night, the Yellow Jackets took an early 2-0 lead with single runs in the first and second innings. The first run came on an RBI-single by Jason Perry and Victor Menocal's sacrifice fly to center scored Clifton Remole in the second to make it 2-0.

After FSU took the lead with three runs in the fourth, Tech tied the game at four on a solo home run by Jeremy Slayden.

The Seminoles broke the tie with three runs in the bottom of the sixth. With Jerrod Brown on first after a single, Nick Rogers ripped a triple down the third base line. Mike Futrell followed with his fifth home run of the year to make it 6-3.

The Yellow Jackets answered with three runs in the seventh to tie the game once more. Wes Rynders knocked in two with a two-out double and Mike Nickeas added an RBI-single to left.

FSU broke the 6-6 tie with four runs in the bottom half of the seventh. Tony McQuade and Ryan Barthelemy singled to put runners on the corners and McQuade then scored on a double steal. Blair McCaleb knocked in Barthelemy with a single to right. After Jerrod Brown singled and Mike Futrell was beaned to load the bases, Tony Richie came through with a two-run double to left to put the Tribe up 10-6.

Tech battled back again with three more runs in the eighth to trim the lead to 10-9. Tyler Parker hit a two-run homer to right and Matthew Boggs had an RBI-single.

The Seminoles sealed the victory with four more in the bottom of the eighth. Brown was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded, Rogers had a two-run single to left, and Richie made it 14-9 with a sacrifice fly.

Robby Read (6-1) got the win in relief despite giving up three runs on four hits in one inning of work. Kevin Lynch got the final out in the eighth and pitched a scoreless ninth with two strikeouts to earn his first career save.

McQuade (2-for-4), Barthelemy (2-for-4), McCaleb (2-for-4), Brown (2-for-4), Rogers (2-for-5) and Futrell (2-for-3) had multi-hit games for Florida State.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Sophomore Tony McQuade knocked in a career-high five runs as he led No. 8 Florida State (38-12, 6-6 ACC) to a 13-1 victory over No. 5 Georgia Tech (32-8, 8-6 ACC) in front of 3,166 fans at Dick Howser Stadium Sunday afternoon. McQuade went 2-for-3 on the day with a three-run homer in the sixth inning and a two-run double in the seventh inning. The sweep of the Yellow Jackets improved FSU's record against Top 10 opponents to 10-4.

FSU starter Marc LaMacchia (7-1) earned the victory after allowing just one run in six innings of work. LaMacchia scattered seven hits, walked two and struck out two. Daniel Hodges didn't give up a run in the final three innings to earn his sixth save of the season.

For the first time in the series, the Seminoles got on the board first. With the bases loaded and two outs in the bottom of the first Nick Rogers was hit by a pitch to bring in Tony McQuade for the early 1-0 lead.

Georgia Tech knotted the game up at one when Matt Murton's sacrifice fly to center scored Vector Menocal.

The Seminoles broke the tie with three runs in the bottom of the fifth. With the bases loaded, Ryan Barthelemy knocked in a run with a fielder's choice groundout. Blair McCaleb followed with a two-run double down the left field line to make it 4-1.

FSU took control with four runs in the sixth inning. Tony Richie was hit by a pitch and Bryan Zech reached on an error before Stephen Drew's RBI-single to center. Tony McQuade's third homer of the season, a three-run shot just inside the foul pole in right field, put the Tribe up 8-1 after six innings of play.

McQuade added to the lead and his RBI total with a two-run double down the left field line in the seventh inning.

Drew (3-for-4), McCaleb (2-for-3) and Zech (2-for-3) joined McQuade in the multi-hit category for the Seminoles.

Up next for the Seminoles is a three-game home series with NC State. Game times at Dick Howser Stadium are set for 7:00 p.m. Friday, 7:00 p.m. Saturday and 1:00 p.m. Sunday.

The Seminoles wasted no time in opening up a lead, scoring four runs in the bottom of the first. Tony McQuade doubled and Ryan Barthelemy singled to right to put runners on second and third. McQuade scored on an error and Brown then knocked in Barthelemy with an RBI-single. After a Nick Rogers walk, Mike Futrell plated McCaleb with a groundout. Brown then made it 4-0 when he scored on a wild pitch.

FSU added three more in the fourth to make it 7-0. Drew doubled, McQuade and Barthelemy walked to load the bases. McCaleb then picked up three of his four RBI when his double down the left field line cleared the bases.

NC State got two back in the top of the seventh on Joe Gaetti's two-run single to center with two outs.

In the eighth, the Seminoles upped the lead to 9-2 on a bases loaded walk by Richie Smith and a sacrifice fly by Tony Richie.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Tony McQuade went 2-for-3 with a home run and three RBI to lead No. 5 Florida State (40-12, 8-6 ACC) to a 10-4 victory over NC State (26-19, 4-13 ACC) Saturday night in front of 3,295 at Dick Howser Stadium. McQuade also had a double and raised his team-best batting average to .404. The Seminoles extended their winning streak to six games and became the first team in the country to reach the 40-win mark.

FSU sophomore right-hander Marc LaMacchia (8-1) earned the victory after giving up three runs on seven hits in 5.1 innings. LaMacchia struck out three and walked one. Junior Daniel Hodges allowed one run on four hits over the final 3.2 innings to record his seventh save.

The Wolfpack scored the game's first run in the top of the second inning when Mike Prochaska's double down the left field line scored Justin Riley, who was hit by a pitch.

Florida State answered with four runs in the bottom half of the second. With two outs and runners on first and third, Stephen Drew's RBI-single to center scored FSU's first run. McQuade followed with a three-run homer to left, his fourth of the season.

The Seminoles padded their lead with two more in the fourth. With the bases loaded, Ryan Barthelemy knocked in a run with a sacrifice fly to center. Drew, who had reached on a bunt single, then made it 6-1 when he scored from third on a wild pitch.

NC State cut the lead in half with two runs in the top of the sixth. With runners on second and third, Brian Wright doubled down the third base line to make it 6-3. Hodges came in to relieve LaMacchia and record the final two outs of the inning on a 3-6-3 double play with a runner on third.

FLORIDA STATE 12, NORTH CAROLINA STATE 11
04/28/2002, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - A grand slam by Blair McCaleb and a three-run homer from Tony Richie highlighted a seven-run seventh inning as No. 5 Florida State (41-12, 9-6 ACC) rallied to defeat NC State (26-20, 4-14 ACC) Sunday afternoon by a score of 12-11 in front of 2,260 at Dick Howser Stadium. With the three-game sweep of the Wolfpack, FSU has now won seven games in a row. Kevin Lynch (4-1) got the win after allowing three runs on four hits in 3.1 innings of relief.

Trailing 9-4 in the bottom of the seventh, FSU loaded the bases when Stephen Drew singled and Tony McQuade and Ryan Barthelemy walked. McCaleb then hit a 3-2 pitch over the left field wall, his fifth homer of the year, to cut the NC State lead to one at 9-8. Nick Rogers and Richie Smith kept the inning going as they drew walks. Richie entered the game as a pinch-hitter and came through with his sixth home run of the season, a three-run blast over the scoreboard in left.

The Seminoles added an insurance run in the eighth when Barthelemy scored from third with one out on a Bryan Zech ground ball that was mishandled by NC State second baseman Adam Hargrave.

Brian Wright's two-run homer, his second of the game, off Lynch in the top of the ninth made Zech's grounder the game-winning RBI.

The Wolfpack jumped out to the early lead with three runs in the top of the first inning. Joe Gaetti was hit by a pitch, moved to second on a sacrifice bunt, and scored on Wright's double to right center. NC State then took advantage of FSU second baseman Bryan Zech's error to score two more. Mike Prochaska had an RBI-groundout and David Hicks knocked in the third run with a single up the middle.

Florida State wasted no time in taking the lead from NC State with four runs in the bottom half of the first. Singles from Drew, Barthelemy and McCaleb loaded the bases with one out. Jerrod Brown knocked in the first run with a single to right, Nick Rogers plated two with a double off the screen in right center, and Zech made it 4-3 with a sacrifice fly.

NC State regained the lead with two runs in the second inning. Jeremy Dutton recorded an RBI-single and Gaetti came home on a passed ball.

The Wolfpack added two more in the fifth and another run in the sixth to make it 8-4. Both of the run-scoring hits came with two outs as Dutton picked up two more RBI with a single in the fifth and Chad Orvella knocked in the eighth run with a base hit to right in the sixth.

Wright's first homer of the game, a solo shot, extended NC State's lead to 9-4.

Florida State's next game is scheduled for Friday (7:00 p.m.) at home against Florida A&M. The Seminoles then return to ACC action as they host Duke on Sunday (7:00 p.m.), Monday (7:00 p.m.) and Tuesday (7:00 p.m.) at Dick Howser Stadium.

FLORIDA STATE 17, FLORIDA A&M 7
05/03/2002, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 3 Florida State (42-12, 9-6 ACC) extended their winning streak to eight games with a 17-7 victory over Florida A&M (24-25, 10-8 MEAC) Friday night in front of 3,295 at Dick Howser Stadium. Ryan Barthelemy and Stephen Drew each hit two home runs in the Seminole win. Barthelemy's 14 home runs on the season tie a career-high, a total he has reached in each of the last three seasons. Drew extended his career-long hitting streak to 10 games. Robby Read improved to 7-1 after going five innings and allowing four runs on seven hits. Read struck out six and did not walk a batter.

The Rattlers got on the board quickly with two runs in the top of the first. Chris Branning's two-run homer to straight-away center put FAMU up 2-0.

FSU took a 3-2 lead with three runs in the bottom of the second. Jerrod Brown led off with a double down the left field line and scored on a double by Nick Rogers. Rogers then advanced to third on a wild pitch before scoring on Tony Richie's double off the fence in right. Drew then plated Richie with the fourth double of the inning.

Florida State blew the game wide open with eight runs in the bottom of the third to make the score 11-2. The Seminoles hit three home runs in the inning, including two from Ryan Barthelemy. This marked the first time FSU has hit three home runs in an inning since Marshall McDougall, John Halliday and Kevin Cash combined for three home runs against Maryland on May 8, 1999.

FAMU closed the gap to 11-5 with two runs in the top of the fifth and one in the sixth. Ben Morgan's double down the third base line in the fifth scored Morris Scott and Morgan came home on a double to right center by Manuel Quinones. Dustin Matthews' double down the left field line brought Alcides Segui home for FAMU's fifth run of the game.

The Seminoles added a single run in the bottom of the sixth to make it 12-5 when Bryan Zech's RBI-single to center scored Blair McCaleb from second.

The Rattlers put up two more runs in the seventh for their final run total of seven.

Drew led off the seventh with a solo home run over the right field screen, his second of the night and ninth of the year, to start a four-run rally that put the game out of reach. FSU would add another run in the eighth for the final margin of 17-7.

Florida State will return to ACC action on Sunday night when they begin a three-game series against the Duke Blue Devils. Left-hander Matt Lynch (9-1, 3.72 ERA) is scheduled to take the mound on Sunday night at Dick Howser Stadium. Game times are set for 7:00 p.m. on Sunday, Monday and Tuesday. The Sunday and Monday games will be televised live by Sunshine.

FLORIDA STATE 18, DUKE 4
05/05/2002, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No. 3 Florida State Seminoles (43-12, 10-6 ACC) picked up their ninth straight victory with an 18-4 pasting of Duke (21-24, 3-12 ACC) as 2,017 fans looked on at Dick Howser Stadium. Matt Lynch (10-1) became the first 10-win pitcher since Blair Varnes recorded double-digit wins in 2000. The Seminoles tied a season-high with 18 runs on the night. Lynch allowed two earned runs on six hits and struck out eight in seven innings of work. Freshman Stephen Drew extended his career-long hitting streak to 11 games.

FSU scored three early runs to take an early 3-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. Drew got on after a fielding eerror by Duke second baseman Bryan Smith and moved to third on Tony McQuade's single to left. Drew scored the first run of the game on a sacrifice fly by Ryan Barthelemy. Richie Smith closed out the scoring in the inning with a two-run single to left.

Duke answered in the top of the second when Bryan Smith's two-run homer to left made the score 3-2.

In the bottom of the third, with Blair McCaleb and Barthelemy on first and third and no outs, Jerrod Brown launched a three-run homer over the fence in right to break the game open and give the Seminoles a 6-2 lead.

Florida State padded its lead and made it 11-2 with a five-run fourth inning. McQuade's two-run blast to right highlighted the inning. The Seminoles have now had 20 innings in which they have scored five or more runs.

The Seminoles would add seven more runs in the sixth, seventh and eighth innings to tie their season-high run total of 18. Nick Rogers hit his sixth home of the year, a two-run shot over the scoreboard in left, in the bottom of the seventh.

McQuade (3-for-5), who had three RBI and two runs scored, and McCaleb (3-for-4) led the way for the Seminoles at the plate. A total of six Seminole batters had multiple hits on the night.

Jeff Alleva (5-6) took the loss for the Blue Devils, going three innings while giving up eight hits and eight runs (five earned).

The two teams will continue the series on Monday at 7:00 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium. FSU Right-hander Marc LaMacchia (8-1, 2.83 ERA) is scheduled to face Duke right-hander Justin Dilucchio (5-3, 4.23 ERA). The game will be televised live by Sunshine Network.

From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 3 Florida State (44-12, 11-6 ACC) cruised to another big victory over Duke (21-26, 3-14 ACC) for their 10th straight win by a score of 18-5 in front of 2,046 fans at Dick Howser Stadium. Daniel Davidson (5-0) earned the victory in relief after allowing two runs (one earned) in five innings of work. Davidson struck out a career-high seven and had an RBI-single, his first career hit, in the eighth. Stephen Drew went 3-for-5 and extended his career-long hitting streak to 12 games. Drew tied a career-high with five RBI on the night, which included a grand slam in the fourth inning. The Seminoles tied their season-high run total of 18 for the second game in a row.

Duke led off the top of the first with back-to-back doubles by Brian Patrick and Kevin Kelly to take an early 1-0 lead.

The Seminoles tied the game at one after Jerrod Brown and Nick Rogers were hit by pitch and Richie Smith was walked to load the bases. Tony Richie then hit his seventh sacrifice fly of the season to score Brown from third.

The Blue Devils regained the lead with two runs in the top of the third. Larry Broadway's RBI-single scored Kelly and Troy Caradonna scored Broadway with a sacrifice fly to left for a 3-1 lead.

With the bases loaded and one out in the bottom of the fourth, Drew took a 1-1 pitch deep over the fence in right field for his second grand slam of the season to give the Tribe a 6-3 lead.

FSU made it 10-3 with four runs in the bottom of the fifth. Nick Rogers and Brown led off the inning with walks and Smith reached on an error. Bryan Zech started the scoring with a single to left that brought home Nick Rogers and Brown. Drew's double to right scored Smith for his fifth RBI of the game. Zech closed out the scoring on Tony McQuade's groundout.

Rogers' solo home run to right, his seventh of the year, increased FSU's lead to 11-3.

Duke cut the lead down to five with a pair of runs in the top of the seventh, but the Seminoles answered with three in the bottom half of the inning. Ryan Barthelemy's 15th homer of the year accounted for the second and third runs. Zech came home on an error for the first run of the inning.

The Seminoles tacked on four more in the bottom of the eighth for the 18-5 final. Jeff Probst had an RBI-double, Davidson helped his cause with his first career hit to knock in a run, and Dominic Robinson also recorded his first career hit with a two-run double down the right field line.

The Seminoles will go for their fourth straight series sweep on Tuesday at 7:00 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium. FSU Right-hander Blair Varnes (5-3, 4.31 ERA) is scheduled to face Blue Devil left-hander Tim Layden (4-7, 5.35 ERA).

FLORIDA STATE 13, DUKE 3
05/07/2002, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 3 Florida State (45-12, 12-6 ACC) defeated Duke (21-27, 3-15 ACC) by a score of 13-3 and extended its season-best winning streak to 11 games in front of 1,807 fans Tuesday evening at Dick Howser Stadium. Blair Varnes (6-3) earned the win and made Florida State history by moving into 10th all-time with 301 career strikeouts. Varnes worked six innings and gave up three earned runs on eight hits, striking out four and walking one.

FSU took a 2-0 lead in the bottom of the first inning. Jerrod Brown's RBI-single to left plated Stephen Drew from third and Nick Rogers followed with a base hit to left as well to bring home Blair McCaleb for the second run of the inning. Drew led off the inning with a double to extend his hitting streak to 13 games.

Duke wasted no time evening up the score with two runs in the top of the second. Mike Miello hit a liner just outside the reach of Drew up the middle for a two-run single to tie the game.

Larry Broadway's double to left center scored Kevin Kelly from first to give Duke their first lead of the game at 3-2 in the top of the third.

Ryan Barthelemy hit his 16th home run of the season in the bottom half of the inning, to bring the game to a 3-3 tie.

The Seminoles took the lead for good with a run in the fourth. Drew was hit by pitch, moved to third on a failed pick-off attempt and scored on a wild pitch for the lead.

Florida State extended their lead to 7-3 with three runs in the bottom of the fifth on a pair of home runs. Rogers hit his eighth of the season, a solo shot over the wall in right center, and Tony Richie's two-run homer concluded the scoring in the fifth.

The Tribe added three runs in the sixth and seventh innings for the final of 13-3. The 49 runs in the series are the second-most runs scored in an ACC series for the Seminoles. Florida State scored 56 runs in a series at Maryland in 1997. FSU has now swept each of the last four weekend series.

Rogers (4-for-4) and Brown (3-for-5) paced the Seminoles offensively. Rogers had five RBI, including a solo homer in the fifth.

FSU will host Maryland this weekend in the final home series of the regular season. Game times are set for 7:00 p.m. on Friday and Saturday, and 1:00 p.m on Sunday.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Matt Lynch (11-1) hurled a complete game shutout to lead No. 3 Florida State (46-12, 13-6 ACC) to a 4-0 victory over Maryland (33-20, 6-16 ACC) Friday evening as the Seminoles extended their season-best winning streak to 12 games in front of 2,259 fans Friday evening at Dick Howser Stadium. Lynch allowed just five hits, walked one batter and struck out eight. The outing marked Lynch's second complete game of the season as he went the full nine against NC State on April 26th. The feat was the first for a Seminole pitcher since Mike Ziegler's complete game shutout of Georgia Tech (6-0) on April 21, 2000.

The Seminoles scored what would prove to be the only run they would need in the bottom of the fourth. Nick Rogers reached on a fielding error by Maryland third baseman Anthony Buffone, stole second for his 16th stolen base of the season, and later scored on Bryan Zech's single to center.

FSU extended the lead to 2-0 with a run in the bottom of the fifth. Tony McQuade led off the inning with a single to right, advanced to second on a groundout, took third on a wild pitch, and scored on Rogers' RBI-single to center.

Florida State increased its lead to 4-0 with two runs in the sixth. Tony Richie walked and moved to third on Richie Smith's double to right center. Ryan Barthelemy's sacrifice fly to center scored Richie and moved Smith to third. After McQuade drew a walk to put runners on first and third, the Seminoles used some trickery to make it 4-0. Smith scored from third before the third out of the inning was recorded as McQuade drew a throw to second to start a run-down.

Rogers led the way offensively for the Seminoles, going 2-for-4 with an RBI and a run scored. Barthelemy extended his hitting streak to eight games while Stephen Drew had his streak snapped at 13 games.

Jared Stuart (5-3) took the loss for Maryland, giving up four runs (three earned) on five hits, walking six and striking out four Seminole batters.

Dating back to the final game of the 1998 series, Maryland hasn't scored a single run in the last five meetings with the Seminoles at Dick Howser Stadium.

The two teams will continue the three game series Saturday at 7:00 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium. Right-hander Marc LaMacchia (8-1, 3.08 ERA) is scheduled to face Maryland right-hander Chris Clem (3-4, 6.65 ERA). The game will be televised live on the Sunshine Network.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Stephen Drew's two-run, walk-off home run propelled No. 3 Florida State (47-12, 14-6 ACC) past Maryland (33-21, 6-17 ACC) by a score of 10-8 in front of 3,046 fans at Dick Howser Stadium Saturday night. After going 0-for-5 in Friday's game, Drew came back in dramatic fashion with his second game-winning home run of the season. Tony Richie reached on an error in the bottom of the ninth before Drew blasted his 11th of the season over the fence in right center on a 3-1 pitch. In each of Drew's hitless games this year, he has responded in the next game with two or more hits and a home run all five times.

Daniel Davidson (6-0) earned the victory in relief, recording the final out in the top of the ninth. The win extends Florida State's winning streak to 13 games and also extended FSU's ACC home winning streak to 25 games.

Maryland got their first run in the top of the second inning to a break a five-game scoreless stretch in Tallahassee. Jason Maxey hit a solo shot to right to give the Terps an early 1-0 lead.

FSU took a 2-1 lead in the bottom of the third. Richie Smith led off the inning with a walk and moved to second on Stephen Drew's looping single to left center. Ryan Barthelemy's two-run double down the right field line brought home Smith and Drew to give the Seminoles the lead.

The Seminoles extended their lead to 4-1 in the fourth. Rogers and Bryan Zech hit back-to-back singles and moved up a base on Tony Richie's sacrifice bunt. Smith followed with a two-run double down the first base line to give FSU a three run lead.

Maxey's two-run double off the fence in right center scored Justin Maxwell and Daryl Whitmer to cut the FSU's lead to 4-3 in the top of the fifth.

Florida State used a three-run sixth to increase its lead to 7-3. Barthelemy's sacrifice fly to left scored Smith from third for the first run of the inning. Rogers then came through with a two-run single center to complete the scoring in the sixth.

The Terrapins kept it close with two runs in the top of the seventh. Kevin McDonald singled and scored on a double by Matt Swope. Swope went on to score from second when John McCurdy beat out a throw to first for an RBI-single to bring the score to 7-5.

Maryland took their first lead since the second inning with two home runs in the eighth. Kyle George hit a two-run homer to left center and McDonald's solo shot made it 8-7.

Mike Futrell's pinch-hit home run in the bottom of the eighth tied up for FSU at 8-8.

The Seminoles will close out the home portion of the 2002 regular season and go for their fifth straight series sweep on "Senior Day" Sunday at 1:00 p.m. at Dick Howser Stadium. FSU right-hander Blair Varnes (6-3, 4.33 ERA) is scheduled to face Maryland right-hander the game Sean Kane (1-0, 3.12 ERA).

FLORIDA STATE 6, MARYLAND 5
05/12/2002, TALLAHASSEE, FL
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No. 3 Florida State Seminoles (48-12, 15-6 ACC) defeated Maryland (33-22, 6-18 ACC) for their 14th straight win by a score of 6-5 in front of 2,047 fans at Dick Howser Stadium Sunday. In addition to the winning streak, the Seminoles have now swept each of their last five three-game series. After Maryland rallied with three runs in the top of the ninth to tie the score at five, Nick Rogers drew a bases loaded walk in the bottom of the ninth to give FSU a 6-5 victory.

Maryland got on the board first in the top of the third on Matt Swope's two-run double to left.

Florida State got its first runs of the game in the bottom of the seventh as they tied the score at two. Tony McQuade led off the frame with a walk and Ryan Barthelemy followed with a single to right, which extended his hitting streak to 10 games. Tony Richie's two-run double down the third base line scored McQuade and Barthelemy.

The Seminoles took the lead with three runs in the eighth. Stephen Drew led off with a bunt base hit and McQuade was hit by a pitch to put runners on first and second. Barthelemy followed with a triple off the wall in left center to make it 4-2. Rogers singled to left to score Barthelemy and increase the lead to three.

The Terps tied the game at five with three runs in the top of the ninth. Jason Maxey knocked in two with a double to left center and Kyle George forced FSU to bat in the bottom half of the inning with an RBI-single to left.

In the bottom of the ninth, Richie Smith reached on a fielding error by Terp shortstop John McCurdy and moved to third on a single by Drew. Maryland intentionally walked Barthelemy to load the bases with two outs and Rogers picked up the game-winning RBI when a drew a four pitch walk.

Daniel Hodges (3-1) earned the victory, retiring the final two Maryland batters in the ninth. Brad Lyons (3-3) took the loss for Maryland after giving up the unearned run in the bottom of the ninth.

Barthelemy moved into a tie for second all-time at FSU with his 14th career triple.

The Seminoles will close out the 2002 regular season next weekend at Clemson. The game times are set for 7:15 p.m. on Friday, 7:00 p.m. Saturday and 2:00 p.m. on Sunday.

FLORIDA STATE 9, CLEMSON 3
05/17/2002, CLEMSON, SC
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

CLEMSON, SC - Florida State used six runs in the fifth inning, including five with two outs, on its way to a 9-3 victory over Clemson. The second-ranked Seminoles won their 15th straight game and improved to 49-12 (16-6 ACC) while dropping the top-ranked Tigers to 44-10 (16-6 ACC).

Starter Matt Lynch (12-1) scattered 10 hits over 7.1 innings, allowing three runs and no walks while striking out three, to get the win for the Seminoles. Steve Reba (11-2) picked up his first loss in 19 starts for Clemson after yielding nine runs in 5.1 innings.

Khalil Greene started the Clemson first with some fireworks. The senior extended his hitting streak to 20 games after taking a 3-2 pitch deep over the fence in left for a two-run home run. The blast was Greene's 20th of the year, tying him with teammate Jeff Baker for the team lead. Greene and Baker are the first Clemson pair to hit 20 home runs each in the same season.

Florida State got one run back in the third inning. After a pair of singles put runners at first and third, Ryan Barthelemy's two-out single to right made the score 2-1. The Seminoles then took the lead with a six-run fifth inning. Stephen Drew knocked in Michael Futrell with an RBI single and the Seminoles put runners on first and second with two outs. With the count at 2-2, Reba threw a wild pitch that catcher Steve Pyzik quickly scooped up. Pyzik throw to second beat Florida State's Barthelemy, but the Seminole dislodged the ball from David Slevin's glove with his slide into the bag.

Florida State took advantage of the break with five more runs. Jerrod Brown's check swing found its way through the left side to bring two runners home and Tony Richie followed with a three-run homer to left that put the Seminoles up 7-2. Tony McQuade's two-run double off reliever Patrick Hogan extended the lead to 9-2 one inning later.

Clemson scored one run in the eighth after a double by Greene and singles by Jeff Baker and Jarrod Schmidt. The Tigers had runners at first and second with one out, but could not plate any more runs in the inning.

Greene went 3-5 with two RBIs and notched his fifth straight multi-hit game to lead the Tigers.

The two teams will square off tomorrow at 7:00 PM. Matt Henrie (10-2, 2.73 ERA) will take the hill for Clemson while Blair Varnes (6-3, 4.34 ERA) is expected to start for Florida State.

FLORIDA STATE 12, CLEMSON 3
05/18/2002, CLEMSON, SC
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

CLEMSON, SC - Florida State used another big fifth inning to take a commanding lead and cruise to a 12-3 victory Saturday night at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. The second-ranked Seminoles improved to 50-12 overall and 17-6 in the ACC while dropping the top-ranked Tigers to 44-11 overall and 16-7 in the ACC.

After scoring six runs in the fifth inning on Friday, Florida State broke open Saturday's game with seven runs in the fifth. The Seminoles earned their 16th straight win and is the first team to take a series at Clemson in 2002.

Blair Varnes (7-3) earned his 38th career win for Florida State, allowing only two earned runs and six hits over 7.2 innings while striking out seven and walking three. Matt Henrie (10-3) allowed seven runs, including three earned, over 4.2 innings in getting the loss for Clemson.

Jeff Baker started the scoring in the second inning with a towering shot to right field. The solo home run was his team-leading 21st of the season and 55th of his career, extending his own school record and good enough for a seventh place tie in ACC history. The Seminoles tied the score at one in the top of the third when Mike Futrell's groundout scored Richie Smith.

Clemson retook the lead in the third. David Slevin led off the inning with a double and scored on an error by Florida State first baseman Jerrod Brown for a 2-1 lead. Florida State answered again in the fourth and took its first lead of the game. After consecutive singles by Tony McQuade and Ryan Barthelemy, the runners scored on a Brown groundout and Tony Richie's single through the left side to put the Seminoles on top 3-2.

Florida State chased Henrie with seven unearned runs in the fifth inning. Stephen Drew's hit an RBI-single to center and scored on a groundout by Barthelemy. With two outs, Blair McCaleb singled in a run before reliever Jeff Hourigan entered the game. The freshman gave up four straight hits, including an RBI-single to Brown, an RBI-double down the left field line to Richie, a two-run single to Smith and an RBI-double to Bryan Zech. Thomas Boozer recorded the last out of the inning, but not after Florida State took a 10-2 advantage.

The Seminoles added a run in the sixth before Clemson scored a run in the eighth on Jarrod Schmidt's groundout. Florida State's Richie hit a solo home run in the ninth to make the final margin 12-3. Khalil Greene extended his hitting streak to 21 games with a single in the third inning, but no Tiger had more than one hit on the evening.

Florida State can clinch the regular season ACC Championship with a win in Sunday's game three. Freshman Tyler Lumsden (2-0, 4.50 ERA) will take the hill for Clemson while Marc LaMacchia (8-1, 3.44 ERA) is expected to start for Florida State.

FLORIDA STATE 9, CLEMSON 3
05/19/2002, CLEMSON, SC, Regular Season ACC Champs
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

CLEMSON, SC - Florida State scored in all but two innings and defeated Clemson 9-3 Sunday afternoon at Doug Kingsmore Stadium. The second-ranked Seminoles (51-12 overall, 18-6 ACC) swept the top-ranked Tigers (44-12 overall, 16-8 ACC), the first team to do so this season, to win the ACC regular season championship. Florida State outscored Clemson 30-9 in the series' three games.

Marc LaMacchia (9-1) got the win for the Seminoles, pitching six innings and allowing three runs and six hits while striking out three and walking two. Daniel Hodges pitched three scoreless innings to earn his eighth save. Tyler Lumsden (2-1) suffered his first career loss after yielding seven runs in five innings.

Tony McQuade started the scoring in the opening frame by taking the first pitch he saw from Lumsden over the fence in left for a 1-0 lead. It was the first long ball given up by Lumsden this season and the first run given up to an ACC opponent. Greene answered in the bottom of the first with a home run down the line in left, his 21st of the season. The solo shot knotted the game at one and extended Greene's hitting streak to 22 games, which is tied for the fourth longest in school history.

Tony Richie doubled in the Florida State second and scored later in the inning on a double steal attempt. In the third inning, Stephen Drew sent a ball deep to right that Jarrod Schmidt reached out and grabbed just as it was clearing the fence. The Seminoles did get three runs with two outs in the inning off of Ryan Barthelemy's RBI-single and Blair McCaleb's two-run homer that pushed the lead to 5-1.

Florida State tacked on another run in the fourth inning before Clemson answered with a run in the fifth. Steve Pyzik doubled to start off the inning and scored on Kyle Frank's groundout to cut the deficit to 6-2. Florida State came back in the sixth inning with a leadoff home run by Richie that knocked Lumsden out of the game and gave FSU a 7-2 advantage.

Richie added another home run in the seventh inning, his fourth of the series, for an 8-2 lead. Clemson scored on Roberto Valiente's single in the seventh, but would get no closer. Florida State added a run in the eighth to make the final margin 9-3.

Schmidt led the offense as the only Tiger with two hits. Sunday's game marked final regular season game for Jon Smith, Seth Miller, Thomas Boozer, Steve Reba and Greene, who were all honored before the game as a part of Senior Day.

Clemson will next travel to St. Petersburg, FL, for the first round of the double-elimination ACC Tournament. The Tigers will be the fourth seed and play Wednesday at 10:00 AM against Georgia Tech.

FLORIDA STATE 10, DUKE 7
05/22/2002, ACC, St. Petersburg, Fl
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

SAINT PETERSBURG, FL - Florida State's Trent Peterson came on in relief and pitched 7 1/3 shut out innings to stop an upset bid by No. 9 seed Duke (24-33) as the No. 1 seeded Seminoles (52-12) won 10-7 in first round action at the ACC Baseball Championship in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Florida State, which resurfaced this week as the number-one ranked team in two polls, was forced to go to its bullpen early after starter Robby Read gave up five runs in the game's opening frame before relinquishing the mound to Peterson.

Peterson (4-2) earned the win by scattering three hits and striking out four before being replaced in the ninth inning by Justin Miller. Miller was chased out of the game after giving up two runs and Daniel Hodges came on to shut the door and pick up his ninth save of the season.

Duke's five-run first was highlighted by a pair of doubles by Grant Stanley and Doug Bechtol. Stanley's shot to left drove in two runs while Bechtol's plated one.

Florida State inched its way back into the game by scoring one run in the third and fifth innings before tying the game with a three-run seventh.

In the eighth, Florida State took control of the game after exploding for five runs. A single by Jerrod Brown and a double by Tony Richie each scored a pair of runs in the inning for the Seminoles. All five runs by the Seminoles in the eighth were scored with two outs.

Reliever Brian Patrick (2-4) took the loss for the Blue Devils after relieving starter Colin Begley in the seventh. During the game's first six innings, Begley kept the Seminoles in check and exited the game to an appreciative standing ovation from the Florida State fans in attendance.

Florida State advances to meet No. 4 seed Clemson at 5 p.m. on Thursday. Duke will now face No. 5 Georgia Tech in an elimination game at 10 a.m. Thursday.

FLORIDA STATE 9, CLEMSON 4
05/23/2002, ACC, St. Petersburg, Fl
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

SAINT PETERSBURG, FL - Top-seeded Florida State overcame an early 4-0 deficit to defeat fourth-seeded Clemson 9-4 Thursday at the ACC Tournament in St. Petersburg, FL. The Seminoles (53-12) defeated the Tigers (45-13) for the fourth time in seven days behind the pitching effort of Matt Lynch. Lynch (13-1) earned the win for Florida State by going the distance, allowing only one earned run on seven hits while striking out nine and walking none.

Clemson jumped on top with three singles up the middle in the second inning. After Michael Johnson and Russell Triplett singled, David Slevin celebrated his 21st birthday with a two-out shot that scored Johnson. Florida State center fielder Richie Smith tried to prevent Triplett from advancing to third, but his throw went into the stands along the third base line, allowing Triplett to score. The Tigers continued the scoring when Steve Pyzik grounded to first base but Jerrod Brown's toss pulled covering pitcher Matt Lynch off the bag, allowing Slevin to come home. Roberto Valiente then plated Pyzik with a triple to the gap in right center for a 4-0 lead.

Florida State got on the board and did most of its damage in the fifth. The Seminoles, which scored six and seven runs in the fifth inning in two games at Clemson last weekend, started with three straight singles to lead off the inning. Mike Futrell's base hit to left scored Brown and put runners on the corners with no outs. After a walk to Richie Smith to load the bases, Bryan Zech's sacrifice fly scored Tony Richie. Stephen Drew followed with an RBI-double that cut the Tiger lead to 4-3. Tony McQuade tied the score with a sacrifice fly and Ryan Barthelemy's single gave the Seminoles a 5-4 lead while knocking Henrie out of the game.

After a double by Richie with one out in the sixth, Futrell singled him home to give the Seminoles a 6-4 lead and an RBI-single by Barthelemy in the seventh pushed the advantage to 7-4. Barthelemy went to work again in the ninth with a two-run homer to right that made the final margin 9-4.

Matt Henrie (10-4) got the loss for Clemson. The Jupiter, FL native allowed just one hit in the first four innings but finished with 4.2 innings pitched, five runs allowed on six hits, one walk and four strikeouts.

Johnson and Triplett led the offense as the only Tigers with two hits. Khalil Greene, who entered the game with a hit in his last 23 games, was hitless until the eighth inning. In the eighth, he took a 2-2 pitch down the third base line for a double. The hit was the 379th of his career, which ties him for second in NCAA history. His 24-game hitting streak is tied for the third longest in Clemson history and tied for the longest hitting streak in one season. The senior also tied Bert Heffernan for the Clemson record with 259 career games played at the school.

Clemson will next play #7 seed NC State Thursday at noon where the loser will be eliminated from the ACC Tournament.

FLORIDA STATE 5, WAKE FOREST 2
05/24/2002, ACC, St. Petersburg, Fl
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

SAINT PETERSBURG, FL - Florida State's Blair Varnes pitched his first complete game of the season and led the No. 1 seeded Seminoles to a 5-2 win over No. 2 Wake Forest in the final game Friday at the ACC Baseball Championship.

Florida State (54-12), the only remaining undefeated team in the tournament, now faces Georgia Tech at 12 noon on Saturday. Wake Forest (44-10-1) will face Clemson at 3:30 p.m. in an elimination game.

Varnes (8-3), who had a perfect game through four innings, gave up only two runs on eight hits. He struck out seven and allowed one walk. Deacon starter Ryan Braun (2-2) took the loss after going 5 1/3 innings and giving up five runs.

Despite Varnes' strong outing, it was Wake Forest who got on the board first.

Jamie D'Antona broke up Varnes perfect game with a single to right center to start the fifth inning. D'Antona advanced to second on a ground out to second by Steve LaFaivre. Following the second out of the inning, Jeff Ruziecki drew a walk to give Wake Forest runners on first and second.

Shortstop Ben Ingold drove a ball down the right field line that was ruled a single after D'Antona scored and Ruziecki was thrown out at the plate to end the inning.

Florida State responded quickly with five runs in the top of the sixth.

With one out and Richie Smith on second, Stephen Drew hit a towering shot to right field that barely cleared the fence to give the Seminoles a 2-1 lead.

Tony McQuade followed the home run with a double to left center field and Ryan Barthelemy drove in McQuade with a double down the right field line. Blair McCaleb singled down the right field line to bring in Barthelemy and the evening was over for Braun as Adam Hanson entered the game.

The Seminoles would get one more run in the inning when Tony Richie brought in pinch runner Scott Toole with a sacrifice fly to right center field.

In the bottom half of the sixth, D'Antona drove home Adam Bourassa with a two out single to left field to close the gap to 5-2, but that was as close as the Deacons would get.

The game was the last contest of the tournament that involved undefeated teams and was by far the best played game of the week. Evidence of the quality of play was the amount of time it took for the game to be completed, two hours and 14 minutes, the shortest game of the tournament thus far.

Saturday night's championship game can be seen live on the ACC's regional sports network which consists of Fox Sports Net South, Sunshine and Comcast. First pitch for that game is scheduled for 8 p.m. (ET).

FLORIDA STATE 7, GEORGIA TECH 4
05/25/2002, ACC, St. Petersburg, Fl
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

SAINT PETERSBURG, FL - No. 1 seed Florida State (55-12) jumped out to an early lead and never looked back in eliminating No. 5 Georgia Tech (46-14), 7-4 Saturday in the first game of the day at the 2002 ACC Baseball Championship in St. Petersburg, Fla.

Florida State advances to Saturday night's championship game which will begin at 8 p.m. The Seminoles will face the winner of the Clemson-Wake Forest game which is scheduled for 3:30 p.m.

As the only undefeated team remaining in the tournament, the Seminoles are in the driver's seat and could win the tournament title Saturday evening. Should Florida State lose Saturday night, the second championship game would be played Sunday at 1 p.m.

Saturday night's championship game will be televised live on the ACC's regional sports TV network which consists of the Fox Sports Net South, Comcast SportsNet and Sunshine networks.

Florida State used a committee of pitchers to hold Georgia Tech to four runs and five hits.

Starter Robby Read (8-1) earned the win after going five innings giving up two runs, both of which were unearned, and only allowed one Yellow Jacket hit. Read did however give up five walks to Georgia Tech batters.

Daniel Davidson entered the game in the sixth and pitched three innings giving up two runs. Daniel Hodges came on in the ninth to close the game and earn his 10th save of the season.

Georgia Tech starter Brian Burks (9-6) lasted four innings in taking the loss. Burks gave up six runs, but only two of those runs were earned.

Florida State was able to capitalize early on two Georgia Tech fielding errors to produce five runs in the game's first two innings. Only one of the five runs was earned and Georgia Tech was never able to recover.

Seminole shortstop Stephen Drew was 1-for-4 at the plate, but scored three runs thanks in part to reaching base on an error in the first inning and being hit by a pitch from Tech reliever Aaron Walker in the sixth.

First baseman Jarrod Brown helped Florida State win its 21st consecutive game with a game high three RBIs. One of Brown's RBIs came on a bases loaded walk in the second inning by Burks that brought in Tony McQuade, one of two runs on the day for McQuade.

Saturday's win makes Florida State 9-0 in ACC Tournament play in St. Petersburg. The Seminoles won the 1997 tournament at Al Lang Field the only other time the tournament has been played in St. Petersburg.

FLORIDA STATE 4, CLEMSON 1
05/25/2002, ACC Championship, St. Petersburg, Fl
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

SAINT PETERSBURG, FL - No. 1 seed Florida State (56-12) continued its two year dominance over No. 4 Clemson (47-13) and won its third ACC title Saturday night in St. Petersburg, Fla. with a 4-1 win in the ACC Baseball Championship game.

Florida State has won nine straight over Clemson dating back to last season. The last time Clemson beat the Seminoles was in 2000 in the ACC Tournament in Charlotte.

Seminole starter Marc LaMacchia (10-1) earned the win with a strong outing, his longest of the season. The left hander went eight innings giving up only one run and seven hits. He struck out four and did not give up a walk.

Daniel Hodges came into pitch in the ninth for Florida State after LaMacchia gave up a lead off single to Khalil Greene. LaMacchia left the game to a standing ovation from Florida State fans among the 4,024 in attendance. Hodges shut the Tigers down to end the game and record his 11th save of the season.

Clemson starter Patrick Hogan (2-1) took the loss and went six innings allowing four runs, but only two were earned.

With two outs in the first inning, Ryan Barthelemy extended his hitting streak to 18 games when he singled to left field. After advancing to second base on a wild pitch, Barthelemy crossed home plate with the game's first run thanks to a double down the right field line by designated hitter Blair McCaleb.

In the third inning, shortstop Stephen Drew led off with his third home run of the ACC Tournament. The solo shot to right field gave the Seminoles a 2-0 lead and helped Drew earn ACC Tournament MVP honors.

Florida State picked up two more runs in the fifth inning as McCaleb singled to bring home Tony McQuade and Drew.

In the top of the seventh, Clemson ended LaMacchia's shut out bid when Jeff Baker hit a solo home run to right field, his second of the tournament.

Game notes: The win was Florida State's 22nd consecutive win...Florida State is 5-0 against Clemson in 2002...the Seminoles are 10-0 in two ACC Tournaments in St. Petersburg, Fla....Florida State's three ACC Tournament titles have come in 1995, 1997 and 2002...Clemson's Khalil Greene extended his hitting streak to 27 games.

FLORIDA STATE 11, STETSON 8
05/31/2002, TALLAHASSEE, FL, NCAA
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Florida State recovered from a 6-0 deficit and scored seven runs in its final two at bats to defeat Stetson, 11-8, on Friday night in the first round of the NCAA Division I Baseball Tallahassee Regional at Dick Howser Stadium. The Seminoles, now 57-12, will face UCF at 3 p.m. on Saturday, while the Hatters, now 42-18, will play South Florida in an elimination game at 11 a.m.

Stetson led 6-0 after three innings but was held to two runs over the last six innings by Florida State starter Matt Lynch and reliever Daniel Hodges. Lynch and Hodges held the Hatters to two runs and two hits in the final six innings after they battered the Seminoles for six runs on six hits in the first three innings.

Stetson broke ahead first on a run-scoring single with one out by first baseman Bryan Zenchyck in the top of the first. Zenchyk's single to the right centerfield gap plated catcher Chris Westervelt who had the first hit of the game. Zenchyk's single was sandwiched between two walks to load the bases. Brian Snyder scored on a fielder's choice to give the Hatters a 2-0 lead. Seminole starter Matt Lynch struck out right fielder Ian Church looking to end the inning.

Westervelt led off the Stetson third with a double over the head of Seminole left fielder Tony McQuade. A walk to Snyder and a single to right center by Zenchyk loaded the bases. Westervelt scored on a sacrifice fly by designated hitter Chris Cole to put Stetson up 3-0. Ian Church, the Hatters' rightfielder, then doubled home Snyder for a 5-0 lead. Left fielder Joe Kurelic singled through the left side to score both Church and Zenchyk. Kurelic advanced to second on an error by McQuade. Hatter shortstop Rusty Beale reached on an error by Florida State second baseman Bryan Zech. Kurelic tried to add to the lead but was thrown out at home by Seminole right fielder Mike Futrell. Stetson led 6-0 after its third at bat.

Centerfielder Nick Rogers got the Seminoles on the scoreboard in the bottom of the fourth with a double to right center with two outs to score McQuade and third baseman Ryan Barthelemy. McQuade and Barthelemy had led off the inning with back to back singles. Rogers and catcher Tony Richie then scored on a single to right by Futrell and the Seminoles were within two, at 6-4 after four complete innings.

Lynch settled down after the third and held the Hatters hitless until the eighth. He struck three batters in the seventh, including Cole for the third out, with runners on second and third. Hatter pitcher Roger Lincoln was equally as impressive. After allowing four runs in the fourth, Lincoln held the Seminoles scoreless in the fifth and sixth while allowing only two hits.

Florida State shortstop Stephen Drew opened the Seminole half of the seventh with a line drive double to the right field corner. McQuade then doubled off the fence in left to put runners on second and third. Barthelemy then singled to left to score Drew and bring the Seminoles to within one at 6-5. Lincoln gave way to relief pitcher Andy Wilson, who moved from second base to the mound after McQuade's double. Wilson forced designated hitter Blair McCaleb to pop to first on his first pitch for the initial out of the inning. First baseman Jerrod Brown tied the game at six on an infield single which scored McQuade. Barthelemy scored the go-ahead run on a fielder's choice by Richie. Wilson struck out Rogers to end the inning with the Seminoles up, 7-6.

Left-hander Daniel Hodges replaced Lynch to begin the eighth inning. Lynch pitched seven complete innings while allowing six runs (all earned), striking out seven and walking four. Lynch set down 12 of the last 15 batters he faced including 11 straight at one point.

Stetson tied the game in the eighth. Kurelic walked with two outs and scored on a double to the right centerfield gap by pinch hitter Lee Bagley. Hodges struck out pinch hitter Josh Laws to end the inning.

Florida State continued its torrid hitting to open the bottom of the eighth. Zech led off the inning with a single to right and scored on a double to right center by Drew. Drew took third as the Hatters made a play at home on Zech. Drew scored Florida State's ninth run as Brown was hit by a pitch with the bases loaded. The Seminoles added two more insurance runs on a single to left by Richie to score McQuade and Scott Toole who was pinch running for McCaleb. The inning ended with the Seminoles ahead 11-7.

In the top of the ninth, Westervelt led off with his 17th home run of the season to make the score 11-8. The final three Stetson batters went down in order to end the game.

FLORIDA STATE 7, CENTRAL FLORIDA 3
06/01/2002, TALLAHASSEE, FL, NCAA
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The Florida State Seminoles advanced to the championship game of the NCAA Division I Baseball Tallahassee Regional with a 7-3 win over UCF in Game 4, Saturday afternoon at Dick Howser Stadium. FSU, now 58-12, will play the winner of Saturday evening's match up between the Golden Knights (41-21) and South Florida (34-28) at 1:30 p.m. on Sunday.

FSU starter Blair Varnes got himself into a bit of a jam in the top of the first inning as the Golden Knights came out swinging. Leadoff hitter David Mann reached base on an error at third and Mike Myers and Dee Brown followed with back-to-back singles to load the bases with no outs. After a visit to the mound by FSU skipper Mike Martin, Varnes induced a double play as Clay Timpner grounded into a double play to the shortstop. Timpner recorded the RBI as Mann scored on the play and Varnes got out of the inning with just the one unearned run as Ty Hanson lined out to first base.

After going down in order in the first inning, the Seminoles responded in the second. Blair McCaleb singled to second base and advanced to second on a throwing error. After advancing to third on a ground out by Jerrod Brown, McCaleb tied the game on a two-out single to right by Nick Rogers. Richie Smith drew a walk, but the runners were stranded.

UCF regained the lead in the top of the third. With one out, Mann doubled down the left field line and advanced to third on a single by Myers. Myers stole second and Mann scored on a throwing error by Seminole catcher Tony Richie. The final two batters grounded out to retire the side.

The Seminoles also scored on an error and tied the game at 2-2 in the bottom of the fourth inning. McCaleb walked to open the inning. With one out, Richie singled down the middle and the runners advanced to second and third on a wild pitch. After Rogers went down looking, Richie Smith drew a walk to load the bases for Bryan Zech. With the count 1-2 to Zech, UCF catcher Jeremy Frost tried to pick off Smith at first and the ball got away from first baseman Rich Wallace, which allowed McCaleb to score.

The Seminoles took the lead for good in the sixth, scoring two runs off three hits. With two away, Richie hit a single to left center. Rogers, who drove in the run to tie the game in the fourth inning, was again the hero. He doubled down the left field line, scoring Richie, went to third on the play on an error by the left fielder and then scored on a single by Smith.

UCF picked up a run in the seventh to cut the FSU lead to one. With one out, Ryan Bear hit the ball sharply at Varnes for a single. Mann singled to right field and then FSU made a pitching change. Enter Kevin Lynch. On his first pitch, Lynch hit Myers to load the bases for Brown. After throwing three straight balls, Lynch struck out Brown on three straight strikes. FSU replaced Lynch with lefty Daniel Davidson. He, too, hit his first batter, scoring Bear. He also struck out his second batter, preserving the FSU lead.

The Seminoles gave themselves a bit of a cushion, increasing their lead to four runs with a three-run seventh. Leadoff hitter Stephen Drew started things off with a base hit and McQuade followed with a double to deep right field. McQuade went out on a fielder's choice by Ryan Barthelemy. With runners on the corners and one out, McCaleb drove in Drew with a single to right. UCF pitcher Von David Stertzback proceeded to walk three of the next four batters he faced, scoring two more FSU runs. Reliever Zach Sutton retired the side as Zech grounded out.

The Golden Knights threatened in the eighth, with two on and no out, but the FSU defense turned a double play and reliever Daniel Hodges struck out Jason Graham to end the inning.

Varnes went six and one-third innings with two strikeouts and improved to 9-3 with the victory. Hodges earned his 12th save of the season. UCF starter Mark Michael recorded the loss and went to 7-4 on the year.

FLORIDA STATE 13, SOUTH FLORIDA 6
06/02/2002, TALLAHASSEE, FL, NCAA Regional Championship
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - The No.1-ranked Florida State baseball team extended its winning streak to 25 games with an 13-6 win over South Florida on Sunday afternoon in the championship game of the NCAA Division I Baseball Tallahassee Regional at Dick Howser Stadium. The Seminoles, now 59-12, ripped three home runs, including two by freshman sensation Stephen Drew and one by regional Most Outstanding Player Tony Richie. FSU will go on to play Notre Dame in Super Regional action next weekend. South Florida concluded its season with a 35-29 record.

FSU starting pitcher Marc LaMacchia had his hands full early on as South Florida scored a run in each of the first three innings. In the bottom of the first, leadoff hitter Mike Macaluso reached base and went to second on an error at shortstop by Drew and went on to score on two consecutive ground outs. Myron Leslie was credited with the RBI. In the USF second, the Bulls led off with two straight hits. Mike Barclay hit a two-base shot to deep left center and went to third on a single by Scott Rachlin. With one out, Mike Cunningham reached first on a hit by pitch and the bases were loaded. Macaluso drove in Barclay with a ground out to short. Leslie recorded his second RBI of the afternoon with a blast over the right center fence in the third inning.

Drew made up for his earlier defensive mishap in the fifth as the Seminoles exploded for seven runs to take the lead for good. With Richie Smith on second and one out, Drew ripped a home run over the right field fence to put the Tribe within one, 3-2. The blast sparked the Seminoles. Tony McQuade reached first on an error and went to second on a wild pitch. Ryan Barthelemy and Blair McCaleb followed with walks to load the bases. The situation forced a pitching change for the Bulls and reliever Steve Palinkas entered the game. Palinkas gave up four straight singles and the Seminoles scored five more runs in the inning. Jerrod Brown hit a base hit down the middle to give the Tribe a 4-3 lead while Richie singled to short to again load the bases. Nick Rogers' single down the left field line scored two more runs while Mike Futrell, who was pinch-hitting for Smith who had led off the inning, drove in Richie with a one-base shot to left center.

The Seminoles increased their lead to 10-3 with a three-run home run in the sixth inning. It was Richie's turn as his rocket to center field with two out scored McQuade, who had led off the inning with a double, and Brown who reached base on a hit by pitch.

FSU scored a run in each of the final three innings. Drew smashed another home run over the right field fence in the seventh while Futrell's base hit to left drove in Kevin Richmond in the eighth inning. Drew tripled in the ninth and was sacrificed in by McQuade.

The Bulls also produced in the late innings. Two extra base hits produced two runs in the bottom of the eighth. With two out, Devin Ivany singled and went to third on a double by Barclay. Both Ivany and Barclay scored on a double to right field by Ronnie Handley. USF had the bases loaded with two out in the bottom of the ninth and Chris Cuccia, who walked, scored on a wild pitch by FSU reliever Trent Peterson.

LaMacchia had a solid outing, going seven and two-thirds innings, striking out six and no walks. He improved to 11-1 on the year. The loss was charged to USF starter Jon Uhl who finished the season 9-6.

Drew and Richie combined for eight of FSU's 15 hits, five runs and six RBIs. Both were named to the All-Regional Team, along with teammates Rogers and McQuade. South Florida was also well-represented with Cuccia, Macaluso, Barclay and Ryan Gloger all receiving All-Regional honors.

NOTRE DAME 10, FLORIDA STATE 4
06/07/2002, TALLAHASSEE, FL, NCAA Super Regional
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - Top-ranked Florida State (59-13) saw its 25-game win streak snapped by No. 11 Notre Dame (48-15) in Friday night's opening game of the Tallahassee Super Regional. The Fighting Irish downed FSU 10-4 in front of a season-high 5,388 fans at Dick Howser Stadium. Kris Billmaier went 4-for-5 and tied a career-high with five RBIs to lead the way for the Irish. Billmaier knocked in two runs with a two-out single in Notre Dame's four-run eighth. Brian Stavisky put the Fighting Irish on the scoreboard first with a two-run homer in the top of the first inning, his eighth homer of the season.

Notre Dame added another run in the third to make it 3-0. Steve Stanley led off with a double, moved to third on a sacrifice bunt and scored on a two-out single to left by Billmaier. FSU got one back in the bottom half of the third when Stephen Drew doubled, took third on a passed ball, and came home on Ryan Barthelemy's ground ball to second.

Tony Richie blasted a solo home run to center, his 13th of the year, to lead off the fourth. Nick Rogers followed with a walk, advanced to second on Richie Smith's infield single, and came around to score on Drew's ground out to tie the game at three.

The Irish got the lead back in the sixth when Javier Sanchez drew a bases loaded walk with two outs. Lynch was able to get out of the jam when he got Joe Thaman to ground out to second. The Seminoles tied the game in the bottom of the sixth the same way. With the bases loaded and two outs, Tony McQuade fouled off a pair of 3-2 pitches before drawing a bases loaded walk. Notre Dame wasted no time in regaining the lead, chasing FSU starter Matt Lynch after one out in the seventh inning. Billmaier did the damage, driving in two with a base hit to right center. Daniel Davidson relieved Lynch and struck out two to end the frame.

In the eighth, the Irish broke the game open with four, two-out runs to make it 10-4. Steve Sollmann and Stavisky had RBI-singles and Billmaier knocked in two more to bring his RBI total to five.

Freshman right-hander Grant Johnson improved to 9-4 with the win. Johnson allowed four runs on seven hits in six innings of work. He struck out two and walked six, throwing 131 pitches on the night.

Lynch (13-2) took the loss, surrendering six runs on 10 hits in 6.1 innings. Lynch struck out four and walked two.

The series continues Saturday at 7:00 p.m. with FSU RHP Blair Varnes (9-3, 3.88 ERA) scheduled to face Notre Dame RHP Pete Ogilvie (7-3, 3.68 ERA). The Irish would advance to the College World Series with a win on Saturday.

FLORIDA STATE 12, NOTRE DAME 5
06/09/2002, TALLAHASSEE, FL, NCAA Super Regional
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 1 Florida State (60-13) scored eight runs in the top of the first inning and went on to defeat No. 11 Notre Dame (48-16) by a score of 12-5 in NCAA Super Regional action at Dick Howser Stadium Sunday afternoon. Stephen Drew led the way for FSU with a career-high five hits and four runs scored while Jerrod Brown added three RBI. The 2002 Seminoles tied an ACC record with their 60th win and became just the second team in school history to win 60 games, joining the 1986 team that went 61-13.

After getting behind early in each of their four previous NCAA Tournament games, the Seminoles reversed that trend in dramatic fashion with eight runs in the top of the first inning. Drew led off with a double and Tony McQuade and Ryan Barthelemy walked to load the bases. Brown knocked in two with a double to right, making him 14-for-17 on the season with the bases loaded. Nick Rogers walked to load the bases again and Blair McCaleb did the same to bring in another run. Mike Futrell followed with an RBI-single to left. A pair of Notre Dame errors on Bryan Zech's grounder to second cleared the bases and made it 7-0. In his second at bat of the inning, Drew scored Zech from second with a base hit.

The Irish answered with four runs in the bottom half of the first to cut the lead in half. Steve Stanley, Steve Sollman, Brian Stavisky and Andrew Bushey started the rally with four straight singles. Stavisky and Bushey each picked up an RBI. After a sacrifice fly from Matt Bok scored Stavisky, Kris Billmaier made it 8-4 with an RBI-double.

Drew sparked FSU again in the fourth with a double off the screen to start the inning. McQuade knocked him in with a single up the middle. A Tony Richie single put McQuade on third before Brown came through with his third RBI of the day on a fielder's choice to make it 10-4.

Barthelemy made it 11-4 when his singled home Drew in the fifth. Stavisky doubled home a run for the Irish in the bottom of the eighth and FSU added another on Barthelemly's second RBI of the day for the final of 12-5.

Senior right-hander Blair Varnes (10-3) earned the victory after giving up four runs in the first, holding the Irish scoreless over the next 5.2 innings. Notre Dame starter Pete Ogilvie (7-4) took the loss after surrendering eight runs (seven earned) and recording just one out in the first inning.

The winner of Monday's 12:00 noon contest will advance to the College World Series. Monday's game will be televised live by Sunshine Network. FSU Sophomore right-hander Marc LaMacchia (11-1, 3.41 ERA) is scheduled to take the hill against Notre Dame RHP Chris Niesel (3-0, 3.75 ERA).

06/10/2002, TALLAHASSEE, FL, NCAA Super Regional Championship
From the FSU Website, seminoles.com.

TALLAHASSEE, FL - No. 11 Notre Dame (49-16) became the eighth team to earn a spot in the College World Series field with a 3-1 Super Regional victory over No. 1 Florida State (60-14) as 5,195 fans looked on at Dick Howser Stadium. Freshman right-hander Chris Niesel (4-0) held the Seminoles in check all day, allowing just six hits and one earned run in eight innings of work.

Notre Dame took a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the third inning when Steve Sollman singled home Joe Thaman from second base with two outs. Thaman was on after drawing a walk and had moved to second on a groundout.

The Irish got another two-out run in the fourth to make it 2-0. Kris Billmaier singled to center, moved to third on Paul O'Toole's single and scored on a base hit by Javier Sanchez.

Notre Dame got an unearned run in the bottom of the seventh to push the lead to 3-0. O'Toole singled and Thaman grounded to second with one out on what looked to be an inning-ending double play, but FSU second baseman Bryan Zech committed an error to put runners on first and second. Steve Stanley's bunt single loaded the bases and O'Toole scored on Steve Sollman's sacrifice fly to center.

The Seminoles mounted a late rally in the top of the eighth. Bryan Zech doubled and came around to score on Tony Richie's two-out single off the wall in right. Notre Dame left fielder Brian Stavisky ended the inning with a sliding catch of Jerrod Brown's fly ball in fall territory.

Florida State starter Marc LaMacchia (10-2) pitched well in the loss, giving up two earned runs on six hits in 6.1 innings. LaMacchia walked two and struck out two.

Notre Dame now advances to the College World Series in Omaha, NE to play the Stanford Cardinal. It is the second World Series trip ever for the Irish and their first since 1957.
